The navigation on the river was nothing special, when it went out to sea with the music of Titanic it was nice. You couldn't complain about the food. I missed the loud music and mood. There was enough time to shop on the bazaar. The bus driver was awesome and got us all wet (mostly me). In the end, I did justice to him with my girlfriend

Great highlights

Tour starts with a brilliant open bus (no windows!). Great pirate ship ride with entertainment and fresh BBQ lunch. Waterfall is nice to see and market is good for those who want to do a bit of shopping. Lots crammed in the day but never felt rushed. Last but not least the tour guides were fantastic - helpful, kind and always at your service.

For us just not what we expected. Pick up worked. Ascent on the boat resulted in discussions with all vacationers. We should hand in the drinks we brought with us to buy new ones ... if that was clear beforehand, we would not have brought anything with us .. we vacationers prevailed after long discussions ... the boat tour was okay, but we would also have liked to find out something about the area. we didn't feel well .. unfortunately .. i can visit the market alone and maybe have more plans
