Stein, our guide, was great! I had trouble finding the stop; therefore, I called the number provided and was assisted by an attentive customer service personnel. The only complaint is that the boat was pink and not white, so I was a bit unsure at first if I was at the right place.

The boat was comfortable and perfect for seeing the city on a sunny day. The two crew members were attentive and one was excellent in giving explanations of the things we were seeing. There are soft drinks and hard drinks to purchase . Since the boat isn’t that big we were able to tour through the inner city canals. I have been on the regular glass roof canal boats and I enjoyed this much more. The best seat in the house is in the raised back seat behind the captain at the wheel.

Time goes quickly but we’ll worth it, learn a lot whilst on a beautiful open top boat. The meeting point said to look for flags and members in orange - there were no flags so this point is only visible when the boat is docked and the staff are there .
