Full description
Enjoy a 1-hour tasting tour of the best of the Ferry Building Marketplace, where a knowledgeable guide/food industry professional will lead you on a historic, food-filled journey of the building's local, artisan cuisine and food purveyors. After a brief break, you'll then voyage by ferry to one of the city’s most popular attractions, Alcatraz Island, for a self-guided tour of the beautiful island and its history-packed maximum-security prison that has drawn San Francisco Bay Area tourists for decades.

Beginning your tour at the Ferry Building Marketplace, 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). Come hungry!

Once you’ve satisfied your culinary cravings, you'll be directed to Pier 33 (a short walk from the Ferry Building) to Alcatraz Landing to pick up your tickets for the Alcatraz Cruise afternoon departure to The Rock. Most guests spend approximately 2.5 hours exploring the island, but you are welcome to return when you choose. A self-guided headset tour (with Al Capone talking in your ear) is also included in the ticket price.
