i was a but uncertain if i was going to do this joy flight or not as I didn't have much time in San Fran, but i am glad that i did. It was such a good way of seeing the city, the bay and surrounding areas. great flybys of the golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. Pilot and tour guide was great and keep it interesting with lots of trivia. Saw some wales as well for those who are interested in that kind of thing.

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
