How was your experience?
We had my parents and nieces in for their first weekend ever in the city. Purchased these tickets a few days prior, and everyone from the people that issue your tickets to the staff on the boat was extremely friendly. It seemed to be just enough time to be on the water. Beautiful day, and it was easy to move around the boat to get several great photos from the tour. Going under the Golden Gate bridge was really great, and the view of the city from the water is just breathtaking. Most of us didn't listen to the tour on the earphones at all, it was nicer to be able to visit while seeing the sites.
