Everything was great , got alot of the fog in San Francisco. Would recommend doing the trip before 5pm
icon Response from Host , Jun 2021
Thanks for the great review and recommendation. What's funny is that the fog sometimes lingers in the morning and clears in the evening. Karl the Fog, as we call him, can be a little tricky. Thanks again!

We were unable to take the boat tour, due to having our car broken into. When we requested a refund the next day, Viator contacted the operator and secured same. Quite accommodating and understanding!

We were sorry to hear about your car getting broken into, and we were more than happy to accommodate the refund. Perhaps one day you'll come visit us so you can experience our tours.

Nice views

It was a nice short excursion around the bay. The views of the city and the bridge were spectacular. Unfortunately, we couldn’t hear any of the commentary outside. Also, if you buy from Viator, you have to redeem your tickets at the ticket booth which we didn’t know until we tried to board the boat.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We appreciate the 4 stars even through there were some things we could have done better. Normally you wouldn't need to go to the box office, and we are looking into why your order didn't get completely processed. Regarding the tour, there is a possibility to listen to it on your smart phone when outside. Wish we could have shared that info sooner. Thanks for joining us. We hope to make it up to you one day.

Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. However, the whole tour is nice. The sight from the ocean of the city gives a different experience than being in the City.

Everything about it was amazing! We saw dolphins, seals and many other unexpected surprises during our 1 hour cruise! The information shared during is quite educational as well as interesting to hear! My children and I loved it!
icon Response from Host , May 2021
Thanks for the great review! The thing that looked like a dolphin is actually a porpoise. Very similar looking though. They don't always make an appearance so you certainly had a special and lucky experience. We're glad you and your family had a great time!

Our most exciting part was seeing our 7 year old daughter reaction to her first ever boat ride. The crew and staff was outstanding. Best experience since my daughter learned to ride her bike. Awesome Day

You know, a huge perk that comes with this job is seeing the faces of children as they are boarding our boats for their very first time. Thank you for sharing!!
