We walked up and down the riverfront but did not have a clue about the history, info about the commerce, and everything learned on the cruise. Our host was funny, and very knowledgeable. Recommend this tour if you want to just rest your weary toes, and to learn about this bustling city.

Lots of fun. Get in line early if you want an indoor seat by a window or an outdoor seat with shade. We boarded at the last minute and had options of an indoor seat (not by a window) or an outside seat in direct sun. It was a bit hot. Overall, however, a very good experience.

Easy on off access. The narrator was great. We forgot to pick up our pictures. I think that a number should be given to you for easy pick up. During the excursion I saw two people walking around looking for people to give their pictures to. It looked as though they were not too successful.
