Very good overall but too rushed.

The Alcatraz and the San Fran City Tour combo was good overall but felt very rushed. We would have like to spend more time in Alcatraz. The line for the Alcatraz audio head sets was too long and we had to rush through the tour ourselves, to make it back to the ferry on time. We only had about 90 mins on the Island, and didnt end up seeing all the facilities. In hind sight I would have preferred to spend more time at Alcatraz and take a guided city tour on another day. My suggestion to other travellers (who have to do both tours on the same day), is to head straight up the hill to the guards tower (to get your audio head set), as soon as you dock at Alcatraz.
