We have buses running on the Red Tour every 20-30 minutes for each cruise arrival, so you are easily able to catch the next bus to continue the tour.

It will take from you with the Green Line approximately 1 hour to get back to the Cruise Pier from Stop no. 1. Combining these 2 tours makes your worth of stayed time maximum what you can get in order to see the most in the city.
