Alcatraz Guardhouse Sunrise - San Francisco - Bay City Bike

Alcatraz & the Streets of San Francisco Tour

Alcatraz & the Streets of San Francisco Tour

Once you’ve explored San Francisco’s most fascinating landmark on an Alcatraz Prison Tour, hop on a bike to enjoy the city and streets that made the Island famous!

Your bike tour begins in Fisherman’s Wharf, one of the last true wharfs of its kind left in America before taking off towards the Golden Gate Bridge. We’ll follow a fun and easy course along the coast, where you’ll spot sea lions, wind organs, and the old military fort in one of San Francisco’s most coveted neighborhoods. Our path takes us up and over the Golden Gate Bridge, where you can snap the perfect photo with the towering orange bridge above and the city skyline in the back. Once over the “International Orange”, coast downhill into sunny Sausalito where you’ll bring your bike aboard the ferry for a scenic ride back to the wharf.

Customer Reviews

  • This is the way to see a new city! Steve was a great guide & took us in areas that you would never see on a bus tour. This is a 4 hour tour with a 30 minute rest to grab something to eat. I was a little hesitant because of the large hills in San Francisco but with the electric bike, it was easy & enjoyed the whole trip. Great trip for your first day here, you learn so much about the area & you get restaurant advice. Great job Steve you made our trip special.

  • Fantastic Bike Tour with Adam We took the "Streets of San Francisco" tour with Adam for 4 hours. The electric bikes were wonderful to have on the hills. I did not have to exert myself at all. The tour guide Adam did a great job explaining the sights and telling the group about the back story of all the attractions, buildings, history of the city. I highly recommend this tour.

Frequently Asked Questions

Because we only get our Alcatraz ticket times one month in advance, we are not able to pre-book folks into a same day scenario, thusly we feature it as a two- day, two- tour package. For people who require a one-day scenario, contact us directly and we can help creatively fit both activities into your schedule!

Most people stay on Alcatraz Island about 2-3 hours. All of our bike tours are 2.5 to 4 hours depending on the tour, please see tour pages for details!

Alcatraz tour date and time cannot be changed. We can always change the day and time of the bike tour depending on availability.

Yes, if you miss the bike tour it does not negate your entry to Alcatraz but do contact us to make other bike tour arrangements!
