In their own words, travellers have said "A very good way to see all the attractions. If you get tired, just stay on the boat and take in the ambience. "A lovely way to see the city, worth every penny and very convenient. Fantastic, informative staff. Great and fun way to explore the city with young children. “ Not only was this tour educational, we were able to save money by using our hop-on hop-off pass, since it was valid for 24 hours.
