was so looking forward to the cruise tour, but it was nothing like I expected.... didn't really see anything of interest on the one I took... but the worst thing was being squashed like sardines in a tin can... won't be doing it again

Very picturesque and informative tour . Great to get a feel for the layout of the city so that you can walk to various areas afterwards.

Nice trip and it was beautiful weather so I really loved. The captain was not really a cool guy but I forgive him because I think he had a hard night.

We were never able to find the cruise office to get our tickets so we lost our money and we never went on a cruise.
