Great trip. The guide was wonderful and full of knowledge on the various sites. They must have fixed the speakers since the past reviews. If they could extend the exhaust pipes from motor to a higher height it would be an improvement. Boat was smooth and comfortable. Great trip !

Very aroused

The boat trip was great. Staff was excellent. Very easy to book tix, find the docks, and board. The tour guide was very entertaining. It was such a lovely treat to hear him do parts of the tour in French. It’s so refreshing to hear it here. Do this tour.

Loved it!

It was a beautiful, sunny day, so we were able to sit upstairs. We were pleasantly surprised to find that they serve alcohol and food, and the service was excellent. The only thing I would say, is that as a guided tour in both English & French, the English should be first, just because most people taking this tour are tourists, not locals.
