View of the monuments

The boat captain was very informative.

Finding the location after exiting the Metro was a little challenging. It would have been helpful if there was a little more direction given. It would have been nice if there was someone to answer the phone at the number given so questions of visitors could be answered.

Pleasant ride on the river.

A bit disappointed with the narration. Hard to hear and no commentary on return. Don t think I would have paid full price.

The day was beautiful for a boat ride.

This is a you-get-what-you-paid-for kind of thing. No frills but we didn't go down with the ship!

I the cruise was very relaxing.
