Two beloved landmarks are paired perfectly to bring you the ultimate San Francisco excursion: a tasting tour of the Ferry Building Marketplace and voyage to the city’s most popular attraction—Alcatraz.

First, join the original Ferry Building Tour established in 2004 and have a food industry professional lead you to sample award-winning bites from the Bay Area’s best food artisans, learning how this historic transportation hub has become the ultimate destination for foodies. Eats include artisan cheese from Cowgirl Creamery, fresh loaves from Acme Bread, chocolate confections from Recchuiti, and French macarons from Miette.

Once you’ve satisfied your culinary cravings, we’ll direct you to Pier 33 (a short walk from the Ferry Building) to Alcatraz Landing (map) to pick up your tickets for the Alcatraz Cruises afternoon departure to The Rock. You’ll want to allow approximately 2.5 hours for exploring. 

All of Edible Excursions stops are subject to change depending upon availability. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated with advance notice.

“Parents coming into town from the Midwest? Edible Excursions will feed them Acme sourdough and Slanted Door spring rolls, then put them on the ferry for a tour of Alcatraz. All tours include plentiful samples, a history lesson on the neighborhood and enough walking to break up the gluttony at least a little.”
