A lovely experience. The live music was the highlight of the night. The boat ride was very smooth and the boat looks and feels luxurious. Great customer service from all the staff, especially the waitress. Also, excellent Prosecco and mulled wine. Definitely recommend and so glad I chose this over the other options.

Excellent evening. Boat was very smart with cushioned seats and tables for two or four people. Boat was limited in number so everyone had a good view of the lit up sights. Musicians played a variety of music and went around the boat taking requests. A free glass of Prosecco was haded out on arrival. Bar available for further drinks.

Personal muy amable.Viaje de una hora viendo lo más importante.La copita de Prosseco rica y la música en directo agradable.El problema es que dentro del barco ( fuimos en Noviembre y hacía frio fuera) no apagan las luces por lo que los monumentos iluminados no se ven bien.Salimos a fuera ( dan mantas) pero estaban los cojines de los asientos mojados.En general bien,pero mejorable en detalles.
