A quick trip with a plethora of information and time to relax! Highly recommend! Added note- I use a electric wheelchair and they helped me on and off the boat and watched my chair during the trip!

Good experience to have a different view of the city. Inexpensive... would prefer to pay more for a longer tour! They offer "bus service" between different areas of the city, which is a good option for only 4$ to avoid a costly taxi.

Singles, couples and families will find this excursion educational, enjoyable and affordable. A short guided tour along the river gives you some local history and a perspective on the area that you can’t get any other way.
