Fabulous. Tom was a great guide and funny. He had the boat sing happy birthday to my partner which was lively. The Adelaide City Council however, need to clean the river (or lake as I found out) near the zoo landing. A rubbish bin in the water didn't look very nice.

Very relaxing, informative and enjoyable. Our guide had a great sense of humour and knowledge of the area.

We had a excellent morning cruise very informative highly recommended 👌
