The cruise was great! Perfect route to see both the Golden gate Bridge and Alcatraz.
Really enjoyed the Bay Cruise of the Golden Gate Bridge and around Alcatraz Island. The audio was very informing not only about the Bridge and Alcatraz but areas surrounding.
We fully enjoyed our city tour and the boat ride around Alcatraz Island. Our tour guide and bus driver Adolfo was very informative and entertaining. He gave us many wonderful photo op memories and was very kind with helping a senior on and off the bus. Thank you once again.
Greatin cruise, worth the money. Employees very courteous on telephone and ticket booth. Would recommend tour to anyone.
It was a great tour.
Great for the price
Great to see the city from the Bay view. And to see the back of Alcatraz. My listening device was not the best.
The tour does not take you to the island but offers a great view to the city. San Francisco must be experienced from that point of view as well.
Lovely tour around the Harbour very informative. Shame that the Ferry crew were unfriendly and somewhat officious!!
Great value for the price we paid! Good narration in the language of our choosing. We couldn't get Alcatraz tickets for the tour, so this was the next best thing. It was fun going under the Golden Gate Bridge!
Excellent tour. Staff were great. Only had a few problems. 1). Whilst queuing up to board, there was a lot of homeless people harassing everyone for cigarettes & money. This has to be addressed by San Francisco themselves but more could be done to protect tourists from these people. 2). The free audio pack that you are given out before departing is very good . . Well, take my wife's word on that as mine ran out of charge halfway through the cruise. All in all an excellent cruise, very good views.
Purchased tickets online a few hours before cruise. Tickets were waiting for us at booth for pickup w/o issue. Able to get on cruise which was ready to depart. Cruise was great!
Had a great time, the audio tour was educational and entertaining.
This was a very informative, thorough tour and the fact that the narrative was available in many languages made it great for all the visitors from foreign countries.
We are two mature related couples from the Midwest traveling through retirement who thoroughly enjoyed this reasonably priced and very informative boat tour. Thanks for enhancing our journey!
Great price and friendly staff at check in desk. Plus we were lucky to have great weather on the day of our boat ride. Beautiful views of the bay. Would definitely recommend GuideYou.com to family and friends.
it was very good and nice.
We loved this tour! The audio presentation was a great way to get to know the city and the bridge and Alcatraz were really cool to see. Great price by guideyou.com as well. Can't get any better than we got!
Very professional....I was no where near a printer and the young man I spoke with erased all my fears. He called the site where we were supposed to meet to ensure we had our tickets. I was on a school field trip and so it was imperative that our excursion took place. I wanted the students to have a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you.

Your visit to San Francisco won’t be complete without sailing aboard a narrated 1-Hour Golden Gate Bay Cruise®—the best view in town!
Departing from the heart of Historic Fisherman’s Wharf, your tour navigates along the beautiful San Francisco skyline, past the lively neighborhood of North Beach, the famous swimming clubs of the Aquatic Park, the historic vessels at Hyde Street Pier, the San Francisco Maritime National Park, and numerous other exciting sights.
The award winning audio narration is available in 16 languages including English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Mandarin, Korean, Russian, Arabic, Hebrew, Hindi, Taiwanese, Vietnamese, and Thai.
As you head west towards the Golden Gate Bridge, you sail around the now-defunct military base of Fort Mason and along the affluent Marina District that was devastated in the 1989 earthquake. Next, enjoy views of Crissy Field and the lush hillsides of the Presidio, both former army installation, that are now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Don’t miss breath-taking photo opportunities when sailing directly under the massive span of the Golden Gate Bridge. You will love this view!
As you steam back into the Bay, you travel past the wildlife reserves of the Marin Headlands and the legendary town of Sausalito, once home to the 1960s’ flower generation. With Angel Island State Park to your left, you slowly cruise around the infamous Island of Alcatraz, once a Federal Penitentiary that housed the worst criminals in the country. On your way back to Fisherman’s Wharf, you see San Francisco’s second signature bridge, the Oakland Bay Bridge, as well as the newly renovated Ferry Terminal on Market Street, and Coit Tower. After a full hour of exciting sights, the barking sea lions at PIER 39 welcome you back to land, where you can visit two National Historic Landmarks, the WWII submarine USS Pampanito and merchant vessel USS Jeremiah O’Brien.
