The Ferry Building food tour was actually a lot more fun than we expected! We got to taste a variety of foods and our guide was very informative. My only advice is to let your guide know about any food allergies right at the beginning. After the tour, our guide told us where to go to pick up our Alcatraz tickets. It was a bit of a walk, but it was nice and we had plenty of time. The Alcatraz will call booth was very simple and our tickets were ready to go right away. We waited in line for the ferry and went straight over to the island, which was excellent!

We had a lovely time on the food tour inside the Ferry Building. Definitely, would not have been exposed to all the the food spots on the tour had we not signed up for it. Alcatraz was a great tour as well! Really enjoyed myself!

We enjoyed the food tour very much! Have a much greater appreciation for the vendors and their business in the Ferry Building. Alcatraz is interesting, we were lucky to be able to visit when the Ai Weiwei exhibit was there.

The Food Tour at the Ferry Building was a pleasant experience. We learned about the marketplace today and a little history of the Ferry Building. It was great to get to try a nice variety of tasty treats from a selection of the businesses. The tour is just an hour and is a nice overview of the marketplace.
The tour to Alcatraz is great---the ferry trip is nice and everything is organized and runs smoothly. The headsets and audio tour are the way to go---don't try to wander around on your own. The information provided is very interesting and gives a good overview of what doing time there would have been like.

The Ferry Building market tour was wonderful. Not only were all the items we tasted good, it was very interesting to learn about how the products got to the market and the prevalence of the locally grown food in area restaurants. As for Alcatraz, it offers the most amazing views of SF city and the entire bay. It's an amazing dichotomy between the lush beautiful location and being a prisoner.

I highly recommend the market tour and Alcatraz package. We took our daughters ages 13 and 7 and they loved both parts of the trip. The market tour gives a great over view of what's on offer from local food producers and chefs (plus you get to sample their goodies). Well done!
