Ferry Building Food Tour and Alcatraz Excursion


$152 per person (includes $38 face value Alcatraz ticket + $2 booking fee)

Two entertaining and engaging historical landmarks bring you the ultimate, day-long San Francisco excursion exploring land, sea, food, and history. You'll begin at Pier 33 (a short walk from the Ferry Building) to pick up your tickets for the Alcatraz Cruise 8:45am departure to Alcatraz Landing (map), and The Rock. At one of the city’s most popular attractions, Alcatraz Island, you’ll take a self-guided tour of the beautiful island and its history-packed maximum-security prison that has drawn San Francisco Bay Area toursists for decades. A self-guided headset tour (with Al Capone talking in your ear!) is also included in the ticket price. Most guests like approximately 2.5 hours for exploring the island, but you’ll have some flexibility to return when you choose, just making sure you’re back to the Historic Ferry Building by 1:00pm. You’ll take the return ferry and spend the end of your adventure on a one-hour tasting tour of the best of the Ferry Building Marketplace, where a knowledgable guide/food industry professional leads you on a historic, food-filled journey of the building's local, artisan cuisine and food purveyors.

Come hungry! You'll sample award-winning tastes from the Bay Area’s best food artisans, learning how this historic transportation building became the ultimate destination for food lovers - locals and visitors alike. Expect artisan cheese from Cowgirl Creamery, fresh loaves from Acme Bread, chocolate confections from Recchuiti, and French macarons from Miette (subject to change).
