1. Re: alcatraz tour

There is a Top Question which addresses this and the two tours are compared on the official site's FAQs: www.alcatrazcruises.com

I've only heard of a few people who have done both. But no one who has ever taken the night tour (I've only gone days) has come back and said they wished they'd done the day. Many people end up on the day tour because they missed the opportunity to purchase tickets to the night tour. But they end up enjoying their visit anyway.

"Best" is a subjective word -- it's not a one size fits all thing.

We did the night tour in May - it was brilliant - best tour we did in SF, it has more of a "spooky" feel about it at night and they also open parts of the prison at night eg the hospital wing.

It can be a bit chilly so wrap up.

Its well organised with audio tours and also talks from the rangers etc.

We thoroughly enjoyed it - but get your tickets asap - they sell out very quickly.
