I thought this tour was great, very much enjoyed the combination of the Ferry building/food and then Alcatraz! Highly recommended, though it is an expensive tour.

A very special tour, perfect for families and anyone who loves artisanal and delicious food. The tour says it includes samples from the Ferry Building restaurants and stores but really it includes more than a meals-worth of samples. The tour guide was knowledgable and friendly. My kids said the tour was the highlight of our San Francisco trip, and I couldn't agree with them more. Perfect way to spend a morning before your trip to Alcatraz.

Thought it was going to be pretty hokey and boring- used it as a way to get to to Alcatraz.
Turned out to be very fun and entertaining-nice tour guide and great food!!

Don't have breakfast, so much food to try - and too delicious to say no. Thanks Molly
Alcatraz was even better than expected, and the self guided tour was really well done, interesting and easy to follow
Awesome views back to San Francisco

The food tour was so different we took the early morning one so we were able to eat breakfast with all the food sampling. I lioved the information about the cities farms and the food service in San Francisco. I would reccomend this tour to anyone new to San Francisco.

Excellent tour of the Ferry Building, a real insiders view on the best food offerings!
A bit expensive as a way to combine Alcatraz, but the island is so well done by the National Parks Service audio tour is excellent! that it's worth it!

The food tour was very informative and delicious. Our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The Alcatraz tour was very interesting. The self guided tour was extremely interesting. Lots of facts I had no idea about in regards to the history of Alcatraz. Definitely worth the money.

LOVED IT!! We are food people. I didn't realize the Ferry Building had so much great food. Our guide was excellent. Very knowledgable about San Fran Food history. We learned so much. Way more than I expected. I 10 year old loved it.

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 truly enjoyed the Ferry Building tour. We were able to taste food that I would have normally passed by. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the building and the history of San Francisco. We look forward to our next visit when we are in the area.

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.
