It was a bit rushed as two types of tours were in the same 17 passenger bus. Time was wasted dropping some people off at their buffet lunch and, although our Bungalow lunch was mostly delicious, there were way too many courses. The swimming item was essentially dropped from the itinerary at the beginning. As the bikes we used were absolutely awful, I would’ve preferred swimming instead. It was a hot day (by Canadian standards).

The tour in total was really nice. We had fun with the bicycle tour with wonderful view in the countryside. Also the lunch was very good and offered in the perfect location, we loved the swimming pool there. The view and scenery on the boat trip was stunning! Only thing that we didn’t like was the way people on the boat forced us to buy something for a price weigh to high. If we didn’t want they kept pushing all boat trip.

We did the tour with 2bkuds (10&7ya). All of us enjoyed the tour very much although it was super hot and sweaty. Our guide Rose was great. Very cute and helpful, full of knowledge and super friendly. The mixture of history hiking culture and relaxing was just perfect.
