Lovely and relaxing

Lovely and relaxing cruise with great commentary. Would recommend if you are looking for a relaxed hour and half. Has a licenced bar, so can have a drink or 2 and unwind. The driver of our boat was so nice and very helpful in lening a hand to get the elderly people off the boat on the cruise before ours.
