    It was a really lovely experience. Although the statue wasn’t within touching distance as advertised, nonetheless, it was lovely seeing the statue up close. The service is really good.

She was quite inaudible and it was difficult to follow. Perhaps the guide should focus on describing attractions on one side of the boat whilst departing the pier and focus on the attractions on the other side, when returning. That way, passengers will know what direction to focus on during the tour.
