The tour is wonderful, be sure to do the audio tour it allows you to go at your own pace. We took our chances and did not buy ahead of time and got right on an 11:am Tuesday cruise, the night cruises are a different story. It is so much more commercialized than I remember it in 1971, but time marches on! PLEASE BEWARE of parking lots around in the area, we parked in an open lot across from pier 35 and paid $30 for our whole day adventure, he gave us a ticket, then quickly left the area! In actuality we we're suppose to pay an electronic kiosk with our space number!!!!! That extra $30 would have bought a nice dinner!
