On the top of our "Things to do in San Francisco" list we decided to put "Visit Alcatraz" on it. It was recommended by a friend and definitely a learning experience. Alcatraz prison was radiating with history. They had a few options for tours and different areas and we tried to follow the groups but still found ourselves lost in the crowds and roaming away from the group. When it came time for the recorded tour, it was so much more interesting being able to go at our own speeds and the stories were so detailed throughout the recording. It gave us a chance to walk freely and check out the exhibitions on our own without getting trapped with a guide. The timing was perfect and it wasn't boring at all which was great for this generation suffering from ADD. I recommend it amongst the other tours.
