Easy to locate, value for money. An hour out of our busy day, to relax and take in the city sites along the river. With easy listening cometary from our captain

it was a lovely day to board the cruise and enjoy lake Torrens. Tom, the captain, is very knowledgable and made the tour fun.

Great time shared with friends. We were able to have some wine during the trip with a magnificent view
