4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Entertaining and relaxing tour through the history of houseboats anchored off of Sausalito. Ends with tea and cookies - very civilized!

“Nostalgic & Informational”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

My husband and I spent a wonderful afternoon walking the docks of "Frisco Bay" while on The Wooden Boat tour and being thoroughly entertained and enlightened by Victoria who is a very warm and free- spirited woman. We learned more facts, history, and information about the wooden boats, the variety of people who call that area their home, and the greater area surrounding the docks from the Spaulding Boatworks to the amazing number of artists that call Sausalito their home as well. Very worthwhile tour - especially if you want more from your visit to Sausalito than the usual "tourist" attractions.

“Quite an adventure!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

I took a group go high school students on the water view version with Victoria as our guide. She is super knowledgeable and quite the character! She had my students wearing hippie headbands and dancing as one read to them from the prow of the boat we were in. It was very windy the day we toured so getting close in was difficult as the channels are really shallow. The boat is beautiful and we sat on the deck as we toured. You will learn a lot about this unique community and get up close to the houseboats.

“Unique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

My favorite was the Spaulding Boatworks tour, the flute was cute, "Dock of the Bay" story, Higgins' boat story, and Zen fun was totally unexpected.

Thanks Victoria.

Hi John! Thank you for your insightful review

!Too true, the tour has many unexpected surprises. Who could have planed on the oldest anchor our in Richardson's Bay reciting for our pleasure "Tales of the Chivalrous Shark"!
