This is a must do for anyone ! we were collected on time from pier 39 then driven across the golden gate bridge to Sausalito ,which is the other side of the bay & totally beautiful ! ,all the staff are brilliant the pilot was excellent and full of information ,the water was calm with no clouds in sky the flight was perfect ,we asked to be dropped at the mariner then got ferry back after lunch for our tour of Alcatraz which was excellently run like clock work , the audio tour inside is a must ,there are plenty of ferrys running to the island so you spend as much time as you wish here , if you are doing both of these tours fly in the morning then do Alcatraz late afternoon otherwise you may be pushed for time , we had a excellent time & rate this as a must do

Do it. Do it now. Book this activity. This was the best activity my wife & I did together in the USA. The plane is awesome & the pilot, exceptional. Over peak season when we did it many people used this activity to get tickets to Alcatraz. Forget Alcatraz. Just do this. The whole trip was as smooth as silk flying over the bay area, Golden Gate (yes it came out of the mist for us), Alcatraz and downtown. The commentary, jokes, cajolling & interaction between pilot & passengers was excellent. They also picked us up & dropped as at the pier area in SF so we did not have to drive. Will definitely do this again.

Our experience began with a very personable driver on the shuttle from Pier 39 to the dock. The welcome at the office was excellent and the pilot was very attentive in boarding us onto the plane. The flight experience was excellent. The pilot was entertaining and knowledgable. The whole flight was fantastic.

I took the 30 minute San Francisco Bay tour on August 28th at 3:15. It was a spectacular day with some fog around the Golden Gate Bridge. We flew around and over every major tourist site and the view was just spellbinding. The pilot was very informative and did a great job maneuvering above and around the Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge, all the SF sites, Mt. Tamalpais, Stinson Beach, Muir Woods, Timuron, Alcatraz, and more. There are not enough adjectives in the English language to say how fabulous and thrilling this was. 5 stars is an understatement!
