We took the 10am tour yesterday on the Miss Hampton. Make sure you get a coupon or take advantage of their other discount opportunities. We found it to be a great value considering it is a three hour tour. The boat is very nice and has restrooms and snack bar with a good selection. The side trip to the Fort was an extra bonus that helped us pick this boat instead of the competition in Norfolk. We got to see a submarine come back into the naval base which was very interesting.
I would have given this tour a 5/5, but the tour guide for this trip was very vocal about the fact that he was not having a good day at work. He became upset when loading the boat as a large group that was suppose to board first did not have all of their party present. He was not happy about this and let a lot of the passengers know. On two different occasions he was telling the customers that he does not make the rules, and everyone gets mad at him when he has to announce them. The best way to describe his attitude on this particular day was "just plain bitter." his saving grace was that he was a wealth of knowledge and when he shared factual information it was very interesting. Maybe he was having a bad day as we all do, but working in the tourism industry he needs to keep this to himself and not let the paying customers know of his frustrations. This lost him a tip and a higher rating.
I would recommend this trip, as it was a good value and very interesting. Hopefully, the tour guide will be in a better mood and this was an isolated incident.
