Is it better to book the ferry back seperately? If we book through Grayline, do we have a set ferry time back?
Yes , it is a good experience to view Alcatraz , the Bridge , and the shoreline from the ferry .
You can choose what time to come back , but you must book in first .
Sausalito is also worth taking a little longer to stroll around . It’s good not having to rush about .
Look for the pelicans flying “ in line “ out towards the bridge , a good sight for us .
I did not take the ferry option and we had a great driver who stopped at the base of the Golden gate bridge at fort point which gave us a great photo op for the bridge. then we cruised back through the presidio district which gave further historic perspective
We took the bus back because we did not have extra time.
