OPTIONAL MORNING TOUR OF ALCATRAZ | 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
To this day, Alcatraz is best known as one of the world’s most legendary prisons. Once home to some of America’s most notorious criminals, the federal penitentiary that operated in San Francisco from 1934-1963 brought a dark mystique to what was called “The Rock.” The presence of infamous inmates like Al Capone, and “Birdman” Robert Stroud helped to establish the island’s notoriety.

If you’re an out of town EMS attendee, no trip to San Fran is complete without a tour of Alcatraz. Event Marketer associate publisher Jeff Fortmann personally invites you to join him to experience the beauty, history and infamy of Alcatraz on the San Francisco Bay. You’ll be astounded by what you learn and see in this morning excursion to this incredible place.

Cost: $49.95 includes Alcatraz tour ticket plus transportation between the Marriott Marquis and Alcatraz Ferry as well as ferry ticket to go and return to Alcatraz Island. Tour departs the Marriott Marquis lobby at 8:30 a.m. for Alcatraz Ferry and is expected to return back to the Marriott Marquis around 12:15 p.m.
