Loved the history and tour of this place. It was pretty cold and windy the day we went but was worth it. Love the idea of being able to come back every 15

Great tour. Narrated tour on the ferry over. Once on the island you take a recorded guided tour. You wear a headset and follow along. I was skeptical but this was great! So informative. Modern day history. it is a tourist attraction but definitely worth it. Book in advance.

I think the history and stories behind this place as far more interesting places self. Have to really get into the folklore when you're standing in a cold damp dilapidated cement building. The stories about it are great and the people who were there are very interesting. If you're one of those people I'd like to say I've been there, then by all means go. However, there are so how way cooler things 2 do in San Francisco

The island is very impressive and historical. But when we went there , cells were closed. You were brought there by ferry and you need you need to book on internet.

The audio tour is free and you should utilize it as it provides a lot of history. There is a tram that will take you to the top, if you have problems walking. great views of San Francisco from the Ferry and Island
