Excellent!! Compliments... the staff is very friendly... the boat is very comfortable... you don't feel seasick... it is very stable... the tour is very good... the only thing is that the guide is only in English and not everyone understands it, that makes that you lose a little the guide and the explanation of the sites... of rest SUPER RECOMMENDED!!

The trip was smooth, hassle free, comprehensive, very enjoyable. The only sour note: at the end, we were lining up to leave and intended to tip the guide (despite the fact that, on the top deck, we could barely hear him). We were told by a crew member that he didn't share tips with the other crew members. We dismissed it as sour grapes, but... When a second crew member said the same, and quoted the guide saying that he didn't share because "he made the show", we decided NOT to tip him. We offered the tip money to the second crew member; he refused it. It all left a sour taste in the mouth, unfortunately.

At the beginning the voucher was scanned and you could choose a free seat on the ship. The indoor areas are air-conditioned. You can also buy snacks and drinks during the journey. A guide will tell you something about the city and the sights in English during the journey. At certain points we stopped briefly so that we could take pictures in peace. There are many beautiful corners to see that you would not have seen otherwise. However, the tour was an hour too long for me. Therefore only 4 stars.
