Nice relaxing cruise along the river Arade

This cruise was nice and relaxing , I would have liked a guided tour along the river at points of interest or perhaps about the wildlife and some history . There was a 5 minute talk about the river and the importance of Silves but that was it . The crew where very pleasant
