My beautiful wife and I, recently married, had a wonderful experience on the Horne Blower experience. It was a beautiful and precious evening as we had a delicious meal and excellent service provided.
The dinner cruise was great!
The food was very good and we had very nice seating at the window.
The cruise covered a larger area than we expected
Well run and everyone was happy and in good spirits
The DJ was good too
This was fantastic! We loved our guide, Teama sp?. He spoke very good English, and was very entertaining! He even serenaded us with his ukulele! He was a fantastic guide and we were very glad to had had him. The views were amazing! Highly recommend!
Excellent for a wedding anniversary. The staff was great and the views of the bay awesome.
This was amazing! Great food and champagne and the views were spectacular. The service was wonderful, especially the DJ - can't remember her name - but she was the best part of the evening.
What a great time we had on our dinner cruise. The boarding process as quick and easy. Our window table was perfect as was our server, Derick, and the bar staff. The dinner was better than expected. Everyone enjoyed their entrees - short ribs, surf and turf, vegetarian lasagna, chicken, it was all delicious. We danced and enjoyed the sites - especially seeing two firework shows - one from the outdoor concert and one from Petco Park. Beautiful evening. Would do it again. Thanks.
Went on about a three hour cruise, the hosts were polite and did their job well. Our cruise did not have many people on it, that made for a nice quiet cruise. The meal they served was very good, they tried to get you to up grade what you ordered, but what they served was just fine in quality and quantity. Probably could have narrated some of the sights, but they don't. Had a DJ and you could dance if so inclined.
The view from the boat is so fantastic. We had a great time and the food was delicious
Amazing view and dinner! excellent service I would love to take it again!
I had a great time on this cruise with my significant other. The food and service were great, but the DJ could have played more current music. This was a great way to spend the evening in San Diego :
The sunset was amazing, once in a lifetime memories. The food was great, this is a must do while in San Diego!!!
Wonderful romantic cruise. Crew was very attentive to every need. There was a mix up at the very start when we were assigned to a inner table rather than a window table which we signed up for via Viator. But issue was quickly remedied. Good Champaign, good mix of music by DJ, and friendly wait staff made this a memorable trip.
The tour was amazing. Great food, staff was friendly and very helpful (shoutout to our server Ana M.). Highly recommended!
We had a great time. Food was better than we expected and wine was reasonably priced. Met nice people and tour of harbor was nice.
Great crew, wonderful boat and I would highly recommend this for a special evening out.
My boyfriend and I tried this tour to experience something new. It was amazing! Our server, Rhonda, was very attentive and took great care of us when one of our dinners was over cooked. The boat itself was beautiful, the scenery was unforgettable and the romance was undeniable! I highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a romantic night out in San Diego!
Great romantic way to spend a special occasion such as a wedding anniversary. Champagne dinner, dancing and great vies. Highly recommend to anyone.
