  • Tours offer pretty views but are too long. You don't need a 2 hour tour of the grounds-- one hour is plenty, 90 minutes max. You are escorted through the whole thing, don't have permission to roam the grounds. The tour guide I had was well informed but the information provided had an antiquarian quality that provided lots of details on things like light bulbs and kerosene wicks and not enough details on the history of the area in a systematic way.
  • there are so many awesome and cute elephant seals !
  • Great tour with allot of history
  • Great viewings
