Arrive at Alcatraz, a former federal prison that's now a National Park and get a brief orientation to the maximum security facility, which operated from 1934 to 1963. Pick up your 2.5-hour self-guided audio tour, available in ten languages, and start exploring. Listen to commentary from former staff and inmates and learn about the stints that famous inmates like Machine Gun Kelly and Al Capone served. When you're finished looking around, hop on the next ferry (ferries depart every thirty minutes) and head back to Pier 33.
Spend as long as you like exploring Alcatraz, then hop back on the ferry, which leaves every thirty minutes, for the ride back to the city.
Tour was exactly as described, and guide was very friendly and knowledgeable about San Francisco history and culture. Getting Alcatraz tickets through this combo deal was also a big plus being that Alcatraz tickets were all sold out through direct booking with Alcatraz Tours. The food on the tour tasted great, and it was just the right size group about 8 to tour with. This one earns the Best Tour Ever award!
Was so wonderful! Was such a great experience and can not wait to do another tour!!!
The food tour was excellent, with a very good selection of foods to sample and an interesting description of the products. We bought several items immediately after the tour, and bought some from shops later in our holiday. The visit to Alcatraz was very good too, especially the self-guided tour of the cell block.

It was fantastic. Quinn was a great guide. The pace of the tour was nice and the sampling of the food was wonderful. Frog Hollow Farms was my favorite. We were impressed with the knowledge and history Quinn provided.. I highly recommend it.
The Ferry building tasting tour was a fabulous event, with a very informed tour guide Shawn. Then we were amazed by Alcatraz, staying there for 3 hours heard a former guard talk, and a former inmate. And the weather even cooperated, not too cool at all. Great value for the money.
Great tour and guide. Loved the history and information shared about each culinary establishment. And the food was amazing! Highly recommend this tour.
Had a fantastic time. Great Guide at the Ferry Bldg and out of this world food. We will do this again when we get back to San Fran. Alcatraz was fantastic as well.
This tour was wonderful! The food tour in the Ferry Building was exceptional and probably the most favorite part of my trip. Our tour guide was Rebecca and she did a wonderful job. She was tuna nd very personable. The food was delicious. Don't eat before you go! Alcatraz was a wonderful experience , too.This tour was one of the most positive travel experiences I've had.
