The tour guide was just super friendly and funny. She did say that you should tell her if she talked too much, but I think she could have talked more, she just has so much knowledge that you won't find it anywhere else. And the music on board was soooo well chosen, it just rounded off the atmosphere perfectly. The route you drive along was also really big and beautiful. I really recommend it!

Excellent cruise, the elevator didn't work and being a disabled person, I had some difficulties.

It was a very nice trip, nice conversation (in English). I can highly recommend it.

Most informative and a great variety of attractions/places visited.

Nice tour. Departed and arrived at the agreed times.
