    Take this trip, rain or shine. The boat has covers so you can still see and stay dry. beautiful way to see the city and sights not visible while walking. The staff is very knowledgeable and keeps your wine glass full. Great trip, worth the money, NOT a booz cruise or party boat, just a lot of fun with great people.

    The ride and conversation was nice. I enjoyed hearing the stories. I did not like that we were packed in like sardines and then asked to move when we already picked our seating in order to accommodate a larger group that came at the end of boarding. I recommend organizing the seats by groups before boarding. The cheese was ok. There were two options, young and old cheese. I would have preferred a variety. Overall the alcohol we drank was worth the price.

    It was an amazing experience. I scheduled the tour to the sunset, so i was able to see the canals during the golden hour and the beautiful of the lights in the canal during the night. The cheeses are very good and all the time the crew is looking to fill your glass of wine again, and again, and again ;-) I definitely recommend.
