Excellent way to get an overall perspective of the city and bay. Informative commentary on individual audios for the whole 1.5 hours, easy to listen to but not corny. If is is foggy and/or windy, take warm clothes.

We ordered on line, but, just to be safe, we had printed out the tickets. I believe that either way will work.
