Quinn was the best guide. His interest and personal appreciation of each vendor made the tour such fun! There were only three of us on the tour so it was very low key and individualized. I would call this a don't miss if you have already seen the major tour stops.
Sophia was a fantastic guide in the food market and ferry building. Bring your appetite, you will have a great 2 hour tour. We will do this again on our next trip to S.F.
Great tour! Excellent, knowledgeable guide. My only complaint is that there was so much food. Lots of samples, too large. Guide was very accommodating about me being vegetarian.
ABSOLUTELY EXCELLENT! Try to do this on a Saturday when all of the vendors are selling local products! By far our favorite tour and day in San Francisco!
we took a tour with Kelly, a chef, of the Ferry Building and the Saturday Farmers market today. only 5 other people were on the tour. Kelly showed us around the building with stops at her favorite shops including chocolate, cheese, meat, fruit and juice. we got free samples at each stop and chats with the proprietors. don't bother to eat breakfast before this tour! she also knows where the secret toilets are so as to avoid crowds. and she is passionate about local and organic and knows her stuff. highly recommended.
I had been to the ferry building so did not see how I could enjoy the tour. Molly the guide was excellent . Golly Molly what folly to think this would not be jolly!!
Excellent arrangement of food tastes. Don't don't don't eat beforehand . Lots to eat and lots of info

Amazing time. We went on a Saturday and let me say, I'm so glad we skipped breakfast. We're local and my husband always fancied going to the Ferry Building and I thought maybe a tour would be the way to go--unequivocally yes! We tried so many foods we otherwise wouldn't have. In fact the gluten-free ham and cheese pastry was my favorite item of the day, and I don't even need to be gluten-free. Don't expect samples to be small tastes. By the end of it we were all stuffed to the gills. Our guide Molly was fantastic. She knew the history of the small businesses we visited and had solid roots in the California food revolution. Timing was great too. It wasn't too crowded yet.
Pro tip: Bring a bottle of water to wash down all the goodies. We popped into a shop to grab an extra and the group was super-cool about it.
We had a great time sampling everything and learning more about the building. Our kids loved it, too!
Wasn't sure what to expect but everything we tasted was great. Wanted to buy more to take home.

The tour was amazing! The guide was very knowledgeable. The food was delicious.
Took this tour last year, and it was a blast! So much good food and good company to be had
This tour was so awesome and I was beyond impressed with how many food items you taste and learn about...definitely don't eat breakfast as this tour is beyond filling with samples. Would recommend to locals and tourists.
The your was great. Our guide was amazing. Can't spell her name. Cute brunette small breasts black turtle neck sweater and pink back pack.
We really enjoyed the Food Tour!! Joshua was a great guide and made the tastings fun!!
This tour was amazing! The food was outstanding, Carol, our tour guide was a gem, and we had the best time in this amazing Ferry Building!
The Ferry Building and Ferry Plaza tour was the best and the highlight of our trip.
Our tour was on a weekday, and there were only my wife and myself. However, in spite of only the two of us on the tour Carol ,who conducted the tour, was knowledgeable, and enthusiastic, relating to us the background of how the food was prepared or processed.
This tour was easily the highlight of our San Francisco trip and on future tours, I will first look for Viator.
This was an unbelievable food tour. Meeting the passionate store owners, sampling their organic produce and hearing their stories was a privelage. Our guide Lisa was marvellous and had a wonderful relationship with the stall holders. We left full as a boot, had some leftovers and was a stand out tour on our 7 week visit to the USA.
First of all, the location was great: the market and the Ferry Building. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the building, and all the vendors. We visiting a good selection of businesses where there was a representative to speak with and answer questions. The pace was good and the length of time (2 hours) was perfect as it left time to go back and shop.
Overall a very enjoyable experience and I would use this service again for other tours.
Tour was great but cost was unreasonable. Cost should be more like $30.00 rather than 65.00 a piece. Food was great and guide was great. Just not worth 65.00 a piece. I would recommend taking the tour but lower your price substantially.
Josh was a fantastic tour guide. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. I learned a great deal about the various vendors in the Ferry Building and learned about the history of the building and the Farmers Market as well.
