THE friendliest, most helpful, staff ever! Enjoyed their overnighter tour, and everything they offer. We learned a lot, kids had a great experience but, most of all, their staff and the people who work there were the nicest, kindest, loveliest people. THANK YOU!
My son and I had a blast and the staff was incredible with accommodating his special needs. We became members because we instantly fell in love with everything about the Hornet and can't wait until we get the opportunity to have the adventure again.
We had a great time on the USS Hornet last weekend. Well run program. Highly recommend it. Keep up the good work.
I asked him how it went and he couldn’t stop gushing about what a great time the kids had! He said the experience was just the right amount of history, mixed in with the right amount of ship tour and information, combined with an extra dose of “cool”
I felt like I was a kid who’d been locked inside a toy store for the night!
We really enjoyed being inside the captain’s bridge, the flight deck, and the dark war room. It was fascinating to be in places where so much had occurred in the past! Sitting in the captain’s chair made us feel like we were actually in their positions. The flight deck was quiet when we went, but when we knew about the previous happenings, which made it feel thrilling. The war room lit up was also amazing and pretty.
I can't thank you enough for everything!!!! The night tour and the trip back to the BART station. It was such a great night, one I will never forget! I talked to some other ghost hunters about our experience and they were also impressed. It's probably one of the best stories you will be able to share on future tours. I'm so glad we all had that experience together, I'm still talking about it.
Fun, fun, fun!! I can't wait to come back! It was an absolute pleasure, and you two were the BEST guides!!!
