The tour was definitely worth doing. I wish we were able to spend more time on Alcatraz. If I come back to San Fran, I would do just an Alcatraz tour. We got to do the audio tour of the cell block but did not have time for anything else on Alcatraz, like the history video, giving the timing. Reviewed by:Anonymous,
