Our tour guide was excellet, friendly and knowledgable. The boat ride was very disappointing. Two very tall men were sitting in front of us, and we could not enjoy the scenery. I had booked a PRIVATE tour and didn't expect to share boat with other people. There were other boats in the boats with 2 passengers. The lunch provided waa excellent. Overall, I would recommend booking group tour as private tour was not good value.
