Venture to the infamous prison in the afternoon to hear audio commentary about former inmates like Al Capone. On the prior day, cycle along the waterfront from Fisherman’s Wharf and ride over the Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito via the car-free national park bike path. Your tour includes a full-day bonus bike rental.

  • Explore the infamous prison of Alcatraz on a self-guided audio tour
  • Enjoy a bike tour over the Golden Gate Bridge into Sausalito
  • All-day bike rental and Alcatraz admission included

Why Travelers Choose This Tour

It’s a value package that checks off two must-do’s in San Francisco. Tickets to Alcatraz often sell out, so this is a great way to guarantee admission. Plus, you can keep the bike for any remaining hours and continue exploring San Francisco or Marin on your own.

Beautiful views

We loved our golden gate bridge cycle tour. It gave us stunning views of the bridge and other major sites along the way. We were a group of 6 which felt intimate. Sausilito was beautiful and lots of nice opportunities for lunch/wine/ice cream to reward us after the cycle. It was then easy to get the bikes back on the ferry. Would definitely recommend

Good but not any different than going your own

We did the bike tour first, please consider that it will be auto booked the day BEFORE the Alcatraz tour. On this tour the guide was little rude to us as my son was lagging little behind the group. Since the very first stop she was marking we should go fast, did not like at all. We kept up for most of the trip And besides pictures there was not much info or insight from the guide once we passed the bride we decided to part off and go slower, the bright side was that she took great pictures, I think she had photo training. On the Alcatraz no different than going by your own, just book ahead. Over ok but it is not worth it if do your homework book ahead and save time an money

Fun way to spend the day

The Alcatraz tour was busy but very organised. From boarding the ferry to introduction at the base of Alcatraz. The audio guide is a must and make sure you go for a walk outside around the perimeter. The Golden Gate Bridge ride was fun and our guide Steve very informative. Spend some time in Sausalito before heading back on the ferry. Do the tours on two different days so you are not rushed.

I booked this tour mostly to secure tickets to Alcatraz because this was a must do on my trip. The bike tour turned out to be one of the most memorable parts of our vacation. We opted to upgrade to the electronic bikes and although unnecessary, they were a lot of fun. I recommend the E bikes if you can afford it. We took the bikes through SF after the tour and the E bikes made it a lot easier to bike all day. I would recommend this tour to people who want to get a feel of the city and visit Golden Gate bridge, it was so much fun to ride over the bridge.

Tour OK, but the shop had an attitude that was not appreciated.

First, our tour guide Adam was great, calm, accurate and interesting to listen to. I give him 5/5. What was extremelly dissatisfying was the shop and the staff there. First, they offer insurances for equipment damage, they even charge flat tires. The prices for repair without insurance is just to scare you to buy into it as you are a tourist and want to have no trouble, but OK. What really annoyed me was how stressed everyone was, they wanted you out on the road as fast as possible. Our youngest wanted to have a test ride so he could feel comfortable and safe before cycling out in the SF trafic. OMG, this was a BIG issue for the staff, we had to stand our ground, but they were clearly annoyed. I would think safety of the customers would be of some importance. Our kid is an experienced bicyclists but needs time to adjust to new situations, this was apparently very annoying for them. Also at the reception, the manager was annoyed he had to repeat information as we felt he talk to fast for us to be able to register what he said. Not a good start of the tour, I would go somewhere else, I am sure they have good tour guides too.

Great to get out of the city

The bike tour is definitely a great way to get out of the city and see the real beauty of San Francisco. We had Steve as our tour guide and he taught us loads about the history of SF that you would have to search hard for elsewhere. Our youngest was 10 and needed help up hillls, it’s busy too with other tours but we’ll worth it. Alcatraz audio amazing too.

This was our first time in San Francisco and it was amazing! I highly recommend doing this tour package. Our bike tour across the Golden Gate Bridge with Bay City Bikes was awesome! Our bike guide, Eli, was amazing as well as all the other employees at Bay City Bikes! Eli was so friendly and fun and taught us a lot about the City. The pros of doing a tour with this company is you are with a group and you are not having to navigate on your own. The roads are busy and narrow. So for safety reasons it's nice to be with someone who is familiar with where you are going. Sausalito was gorgeous! Could have spent all day there! Eli took us off the beaten path to some other beautiful spots that we probably would have missed on our own. So worth your time to do this. The views over the bridge is breathtaking! Alcatraz was worth it too. Totally satisfied! Viator was very easy to book through!

2 fantastic activities over 2 days! Bike tour took us to places we wouldn't have thought of going with a knowledgeable guide, but we thought you needed to be a competent cyclist to manage it - some of our tour found it too hard and dropped out. We loved it and to have the bikes for 12 hours was a real bonus. Alcatraz the next day was brilliant- get there early to collect your ticket though and remember that everyone in the party who is over 18 needs photo ID.

Love the Golden Gate Bridge guide bike tour, Phil was an excellent guide and shared many amazing history about the city! This will be great for first time visitors to SF. Alcatraz was good but feels a little too commercialized.
