Definitely worth it if you are into craft beer and want to learn more about SF. Great way to get Alcatraz tickets if they're sold out too. Was very informative, sampled a good range of beers full size!, and went to unexpected places.

We really enjoyed this combo, did Alcatraz in the morning which we found very interesting, the audio tour is great and then had the beer tour with Emily at 2pm which was so much fun! She took us to 3 San Fran breweries, Emily was very knowledgeable and the beer was delicious.

What You'll Get

Alcatraz (morning)
Before your scheduled departure time, use your voucher to pick up your admission ticket to Alcatraz at Pier 33. After boarding the ferry, ride across San Francisco Bay and see views of the city skyline and the Golden Gate Bridge en route to Alcatraz Island. Disembark and walk up to the prison site, then slip on provided audio headphones for a 45-minute audio tour of the cell house. You'll hear about former criminals like Al Capone and listen to narration by former inmates and prison guards.

Ferries depart Alcatraz every 30 to 40 minutes; after ferrying back to mainland, make your way back to Fisherman's Wharf in time for your beer walking tour in the afternoon.

Beer walking tour (afternoon)
This 3.5-hour guided tour is a premier way for beer lovers to enjoy some of the city's top attractions and tasty beverages in two of San Francisco's most scenic neighborhoods: Fisherman's Wharf and North Beach. With a small group of no more than 12 participants, you're accompanied by a craft beer enthusiast to three local bars. Hear historical accounts and fascinating stories while you stroll and take advantage of photo ops.

Of course, your tour is as much about beer as it is about the city, so you will take frequent breaks from sightseeing to sample some of the best craft beer the Bay Area has to offer (beer and snacks included). Gain insight into the San Francisco beer scene, brewing techniques, beer styles, and more. Finish with recommendations by your guide about brewpubs and more places to eat and drink after the tour.
