Loved it! The musician, Eric, was wonderful. The appetizers were basic but tasty, we got a cool little video sent to us by a very friendly staff member, and even got a picture when we left. Great experience!

The route was well planned. We got some pictures of San Franscico that are not commonly seen. Worth the expense and will definately try again in the summer for sunset view.

Tour was fab! We did the twilight cruise in Jan which meant there wasn't many people on it however the staff were still friendly and attentive. The musician was brill and gave the boat a nice atmosphere. The views were incredible and we got some stunning pictures. The souvenir gift at the end was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend and would definitely do this tour again when we return to beautiful San Francisco

Outstanding view of the city!!! Totally worth it! The food was ok and you get a free drink. I'd do it again!

What a gorgeous way to see the lights, bridges and Alcatraz... at night. Great music on the tour and the cocktail was delicious. Grateful to have a friend join me on this venture prior to our convention kicking off.
Great experience on our last night in SF!

We cruised on the twilight cruise and it was an amazing experience. We highly recommend and would do it again. We worried that, since it was dark, there would be limited photo opportunities but we were wrong. Highly, highly recommend.

Lovely view, lovely cruise, good food, loved the band. Cannot think of anything else to say but I am glad we went.

Me and my best friend enjoyed out time on the cruise to the fullest. The 2 hours trip was worth going on if you want to relax and have a wonderful time with you close ones.

I loved this ride!!! Ours included a live singer, a free printed picture, a complimentary drink, and appetizers. So much fun. Would 100% go again. We got to go under the Golden Gate Bridge, past Alcatraz, through raccoon straight and by Angel Island.

The sunset bay cruise was epic! The photos we got are amazing! The view of the Golden Gate Bridge at sunset was just incredible-and being able to see it so close was quite an experience! The view of the city and the Bay Bridge coming back was also an awesome experience. This is a must do if you are ever in San Francisco!
