Great tour guide but need better online info
, Aug 2019
The guide was very knowledgeable,personable, funny. The description online wasn't clear that Chinatown and Fishermans Wharf are just drivebys, not actually a stop. Also that the boat tour is a different company. As we were among last to load due to bus arrival at the Pier, it was standing room only for the whole boat tour. Also, its first come first served on the boat and its possible even with a ticket, you'd have to wait for a later boat. online it said transport back to hotels isn't included, but there is no transport back to tour starting point after the boat tour. Viator said public transportation is available but
no help in how and where to access, and if cash pay is accepted. Only parking available at starting point is parking garages for $35 if you show you're going on the tour.
