The hour long tram tour is very interesting although there is not as much information on the immigrant aspect as I expected. For the best views sit on the right hand side of the tram (as you face forward). Very clean and kept up.

This is a very well kept state park, the hikes are beautiful and can be done either in a half day, but you can easily soend the whole day there. The Immigration Museum is interesting, well explained. The ferry from Tiburon is a pleasant 15...More

we have to have more than some hours to spend there. The tour was just inside the microbus. It was nice but if you think about enjoying more of that place, you should rent a bike.

Angel Island is the "Ellis Island" of the west coast, the first stop for new immigrants coming to America. There is also some camping here.

I was intrigued by the various historical information I received that I had never previously heard. The Tram Tour is a must.

This a great day activity for groups or couples. You could have a BBQ there, or go for a sporty hike, to even camping overnight on the island. Many parts are wheelchair friendly.

Did the segway tour with 4 of us. Cole was our guide and he did a great job of teaching us how to safely use the segways and gave a great historical overview of the island. Had lunch after the tour. Great burgers and drinks....More

Took the Angel Island/Alcatraz tour and it was fantastic. Been to Alcatraz a few times but never Angel island and worth the extra. Doing both works great and makes it a whole day out on the water plus the Alcatraz tour at the end. Loved...More

Yes. Nice place to camp in or near San Francisco. Check Reserve America punto com, or use search engine to find site. I tried to include URL, but site would not allow it. Hope this helps
