The trip to Alcatraz was A+++. Great experience. The Hop on Hop off bus not so much. I would say pretty poor. You couldnt hear the commentary at all. And it was confusing as to what you could actually see when you got off. So we exited at stop 6 and walked to places we wanted to see with the GPS. Went to the trolley museum and rode the trolley. Had a wonderful meal at a local restaurant.

Alcatraz is a great experience! Make sure to dress in layers as the wind is very cold on the island! Same tip for hop on hop off :-)
