The cruise itself was a five. The lunch was only a salad and difficult to eat on a fast boat. I would have rathered spent time in the town than at the historical war boat site.

This trip started with a little stress but in the end was perfect. I made the booking and then I called the company to confirm the hotel name where I was going to be picked up. The lady on the phone told me that I need a Reference Number that I have to receive from Expedia and to call back later. I never encountered that before. I called back after a few hours and she told me again to call back before they close, which was 8 o’clock. I called at quarter to 8 pm again like she said and another lady answered having no idea about my upcoming excursion which was supposed to be the next morning with Expedia confirmation. So my stress began. The lady on the phone was very helpful though , asking me to forward the email from Expedia and after that she took care of me , exactly what the First Lady should have done from the beginning. Except that, everything was perfect with our driver being very friendly and funny. By the way, the lunch they give is a small salad, so have something else before
