Two entertaining and engaging historical landmarks bring you the ultimate, half day San Francisco excursion exploring land, sea, food, and history. You'll begin with 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. After a brief break, you'll be given a ticket to voyage by ferry to one of the city’s most popular attractions, Alcatraz Island, where you can explore this beautiful island and its history-packed maximum-security prison that has drawn San Francisco Bay Area tourists for decades. Alcatraz: usually midday departure / last return changes seasonally. Contact us for exact departure time. The price of this experience includes $39.90 face value Alcatraz ticket.
My name is Lisa Rogovin and I created Edible Excursions, a San Francisco award-winning walking food tour company, 15 years ago. I'm passionate about people, history and our amazingly diverse region and how it's had a sweeping effect on the global food movement. I got my start while working for Gourmet Magazine (RIP). I'd take guests of the Four Seasons Hotel. All of my hosts are food industry professionals - food TV alumni, chefs, longtime restaurant workers and award-winning food writers. Either Quinn, Travis, Rebecca, Carrie, Tori, or I, myself, will host this 1-hour Ferry Building tour.
The food you will be served at 7 artisanal shops is equivalent to breakfast. Food samples are substantial and will leave you…
The price of this experience includes $39.90 face value Alcatraz ticket, supplied by Alcatraz Cruises.
