Friends and travel guidebooks had all recommended that if you wanted to go to Alcatraz, you needed to book well in advance. Considering it had been a bit of a rush to get organised for our holiday, we had only done this a couple of days before we flew out from Australia. So, on our first full day in the beautiful city of San Fran we walked down to the pier with our printed ticket and caught the ferry to the island. We took the audio tour which really is a must since it helps contextualise everything you see – it was so well done that even the kids thoroughly spellbound. Here’s some snaps taken during our roam around the infamous Alcatraz Island prison.
