Very busy but it was a lovely sunny day and lot's of good buskers playing music. Great place to enjoy the gardens and sit and people watch.

Wandered around the area not expecting much after Pier 39, but what a surprise. The seal colony was great to watch and the old quayside buildings were great to see. Avoid the seafront rip off shops and look at the real San Francisco waterfront. Use the streetcar to get there, great views of the City on the way up.

I would take the ferry to Sausalito ($12) for a scenic views and the pictures, but wouldn't spend the money or time on the tours for pictures and sight-seeing only. There are plenty of views from the batteries and parks on the north side of the bridge for all of that. As far as, San Francisco itself. I'd stay between the Ferry Building and Fort Mason and never go south of the Embarcadero road. The 'Tourist Area' that the locals bad mouth so much is the cleanest part with the fewest homeless, beggars and piles of feces. Looking a couple blocks down I could see there wasn't anything I was interested in seeing or hadn't seen overseas in 3rd world countries.

The boat tour is really beautiful - take a good jacket to repair from strong winds. The boat trip worth every penny.
