“Great Tour”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

What a terrific tour! Very informative and a lots of fun. We had no idea that these boats even existed until today. I think anyone who comes to Sausalito should take this tour."

“Skip the Boutiques”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Victoria has compiled a wealth of stories and history that brings the docks and marinas alive. The time flew by. Beats going to the boutiques.

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”
Reviewed June 22, 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!”
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.
