Very good commentary. Freezing cold but that wasn't their fault and they provided us with blankets. Lovely views of the city.

Super interesting boat tour. You see the beautiful landscape and always get information about the area from the guides

Heavy snow, yet the lady cleaned the stairs and upperdeck so we could go there. Provided extra towels
