We had a combination ticket of the cruise first followed by the euromast. We just missed the boat at 12:30 but without issues we could change to the 2 pm cruise. Both attractions were worth it.

I really liked it especially in the tower, it was great. And during the cruise I liked the walk but I didn't have a place to sit down during the trip but otherwise everything was beautiful.

It was a great tour. The guide was great. We have seen a lot. The snacks and location were good. Great price-performance ratio.

Fantastic staff, fun friendly and great service. The trip itself is second to none

Highly Recommended. Service on board was great and absolutely inexpensive.
