    Alcatraz and walking Craft Beer Combo Tour
    , Nov 2019
    Alcatraz was very interesting. The walking craft beer tour with Henrique of SF on Tap was a blast. He schooled us on some history as well as a variety of different beers while taking us to a brewery and several unique bars. The group we had was energetic and fun! Made several new friends from around the country while enjoying some interesting hops. Would highly recommend!
    Great Time
    , Oct 2019
    We enjoyed the Alcatraz tour. But, the SF On Tap walking beer tour was fabulous. Mike had so much knowledge to share not only about the beer we had but also about the city and it’s history. Highly recommend it.

    Hi! Thanks for your positive review. We're glad you enjoyed both parts of this tour. We look forward to seeing you or your friends on another tour before long.
    Great experience

    Great day! We enjoyed Alcatraz, which was expected. Then we loved the beer tour, i would recommend it to anyone with small to large interest in beer. We had very good beers and snacks, learned quite a lot about secret spots in SFO and met cool people. Again, very recommended!
    Alcatraz and beer combo!!
    , Sep 2019
    We do recommand it. You won’t regret your choice. The beer tour was SUPER interesting, educative and fun! Just be sure to organize strategically your time in the morning to target what you want to see from Alcatraz (garden, listen to guide’s escape stories, audio tour guide of the cells ) to have the time to do everything you want there before catching the return boat for lunch and beer tour.
    First time to San Francisco
    , Sep 2019
    It was our first time to San Francisco, so the Alcatraz and walking beer tour was a great way to see the sights, learn some history and have a lot of fun
    Great combo tour
    , Aug 2019
    Alcatraz audio tour was so engaging. So much interesting history. Felt like we were transported back in time. The walking Craft Beer tour was better than I expected. Henrique’s passion and knowledge of beer and local gems was spot on. We had the chance of going inside a local brewery on our tour which was a great experience. Our small group on the tour started out as strangers and became friends at the end. Definitely recommend combo tour.
    Surpassed Expectations
    , Aug 2019
    When they day started, I thought the main attraction would be Alcatraz and the beer tastings would be a nice to have after the tour. I was sorely mistaken. The beer tastings were well thought out and Enrique was extremely knowledgable and personable. I got to pick up a lot of knowledge on brewing beer to different kinds and what it all means. The smaller group made it a very lovey conversation, meeting folks from different backgrounds. And coupled with the walking tour around San Francisco, the walking tour was a perfect balance of beer, fun and learning. Couldn’t recommend it more to anyone who’s looking for a cool way to spend their time.
    This was the bomb dot com

    Exceeded my expectations 100% - tour guide was too legit ask for Henrique. I thought this was simply going to be a ticket for Alcatraz with 1 or 2 pints and then get sent on my way. The tour had multiple stops, including a tour of the brewery, a very knowledgeable beer enthusiast, snacks along the way and stops at places I would not have stopped at otherwise. If you want to catch Alcatraz, then make your way through SF sipping delish brews, this one you can purchase with no hesitations.
    Great combo!
    , Jul 2019
    We loved this combo tour as we were only in San Francisco for 2 days. Plenty of time on the rock and the beer tour was fabulous and informative - great way to see some of the lesser known sights. Beer plentiful and great snacks.
    Nice Day

    Enriche was an outstanding host and very knowledgable about beer. Alcatraz was awesome!! We even got to meet a former inmate, William Baker, buy his book and get a pic with him:)
    So much fun!
    , Jul 2019
    This tour was great. Enjoyed the quick trip and tour to Alcatraz. Then grabbed lunch and tasted so many beers!! Our group was gin and we meet some awesome people. Enrique was fantastic and super knowledgeable. He was engaging and fun. My only complaint was that our beer tour ended up not being along the pier or that general area at all. So finishing the Alcatraz tour and finding something to eat and get to the first brewery on time via public transit was tough. Would have preferred to be able to tour the pier area as I thought it was.
    Great time
    , Jun 2019
    Highly recommend!!! A must do.. Not only do you learn about beer, you get highly valuable insider tips on where to eat and drink. Loved it!!!

    Beer tour was great. Our tour guide Andrew was great and gave the group a good experience. He was knowledgable about the city and did a great job showing us around the area.
    A super fun way to see SF

    When my friend was coming to visit and Alcatraz tickets were sold out, I panicked - and then was super relieved to find the tickets bundled with the SF on Tap tour. Alcatraz and beer? So fun! It's a lot of walking, Alcatraz is fascinating, and the beer was great. Lena, our tour guide for the beer tour, really knew her stuff and did a great job making sure everyone had fun. Highly recommend!
    Great Time!!!
    , Jan 2019

    , Jan 2019

    Our tour guide Line was the bomb ! She made it really fun and very entertaining and informative . There was 8 of us in our group and she made a connection with each and every one of us by engaging all of us in the tour .We went on three very different stops and sampled a number of beers at each stop .I think it was 10 in all...we stopped counting . The samples are very generous by the way . We also sampled some Indian food at a combination Indian restaurant and Irish pub . (sounds crazy but it works ) you walk quite a bit but the whole time you are learning a lot about the city and also a lot of unique stops along the way ...very Anthony Bourdain or travel channel like . the whole 6 hours goes by in a snap . truly worth the price .
    Highly recommended.
    , Dec 2018
    Alcatraz was amazing. But the beer tour was what makes it so great. Our tour guide, Lena, was knowledgeable, professional, fun and sweet. She alone gets four of the five stars. Highly recommended. Cheers!
    great tour enjoyed trying different...
