A delightful way to spend an hour when visiting the Ithaca Farmers Market. Cayuga Lake is beautiful and the guide was very knowledgeable.

Absolutely a wonderful night. The crew was outstanding and we hated to see the cruise end! It's a "can't miss" event. The tour also attracted other fun people and we had a great time.
