Best of USA Alcatraz tour

5 Feb 2008 Kathryn said

Hi everybody..

This is just a quick question for those people who have been on the best of USA tour and booked alcatraz.

On contiki's website, it says we should book into the alcatraz cruise ourselves... it says to do this for day 11 - but the best of USA tour is in new york on day 11. I'm guessing they are probably suggesting day 5 - this is when it says 'San Francisco at leisure'

Also, how long did you guys leave it before you booked it. If i am doing the tour in december, when would you suggest to book it. Is this a MUST DO when it comes to optionals?

Thanks heaps for your help

    I’ve heard from a friend in San Francisco that Alcatraz needs to be booked weeks in advance – that said, I’m betting Contiki has spots booked on a few tours during the times of their own tours.

    Hope this helps.

    are the ticket agents
    for tours there.

    You can book tours up to 90 days in advance, and I suggest you do. It is the most popular
    tourist attraction in San Fran. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
