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.

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.
