This was a wonderful way to spend an hour with my husband. The driver was pleasant, the views of town from the river are stunning, and the price is ok. I recommend it.

Beutiful old boat, a very nice canal through a park with lots of flowers, then on the river, and back again in the canal. Calm and relaxing. No comments, but a map where you can follow the route

Slow, sedate pace. No commentary or atmosphere of any sort. Wasn't even given the little sightseeing map/flyer. Don't see anything you couldn't just by walking and the different angle from boat doesn't give you better pictures. Overall dull and boring
