Really great experience. Would definitely recommend doing this at twilight so you can watch the city light up and see then reflected on the water. We didn't listen to the guide as we were busy talking and watching the city float by which was a very lovely way of experiencing the cruise.

Really good value fir money. Excellent from start to finish. The trip lasted the full 75 minutes. The boat goes out of the canal at one point into a wide open stench of the river which was brilliant and then returns to the canal. Would definitely recommend has commentary via headphone and toilet on boat as well.

Very good tour with lots of points of interest. The audio guide is helpful and gives additional information. Our guide / driver was very pleasant with a good sense of humour. If your hungry you are able to take food on board which is ideal with 2 ever hungry teenagers. More comfy seats would be the only thing that could improve this, but that is being very picky. Overall would highly recommend.
