Pretty town but tour lacked personal touch
Christy_F, Aug 2023
We were informed when we boarded the boat that our guide did not speak English and the automated system would be our guide. Unfortunately, this made the tour quite boring as there was no ability to ask questions about the area. I wish that we would have been informed that tours were not offered in other languages prior to booking. The boat was also quite hot as we were not able to open the windows.
Great way to see the city!

The views and relaxing. The boat was nice and captain too. Would do it again. Was happy until had to keep adding word to this section before I could give a 4 star rating almost didn’t bother because of it.

Sur le site était noté que la visite en bateaux serait en français. Ce n'était pas le cas. Le paysage était très agréable. Dommage. Je ne comprenais pas la langue.
