I was really looking forward to this tour, but the guide was a no-show. We and the other participants waited for 20 minutes past tour starting time and finally gave up. It was such a disappointment.

We actually had no rain Thursday. It was windy, but everything was okay otherwise. In any case, we do our best to reschedule folks who do miss a tour but never did hear from you.

If you can really get off the ship at 9:00, it's very doable. There are taxis waiting there outside and it's about a 20 minute taxi ride from the port to 28 State Street.
