I'm ashamed to admit that we were "those" people. We forgot about our groupon (my husband got deployed), and they honored it a few days late. We were stuck in traffic for more than 2 hours, and they were on the phone with us trying...More

Great tour - especially during Sunday brunch with older individuals that have mobility issues - reasonable ($5) parking available and easy access. Great narration and very attentive staff.

Just had a corporate function and the entire process went well with event manager and Victor on board. The décor is a bit dated and tired, but you are here for experiencing the scenic cruise and the views of the monuments all lit up at...More

I would not pay full price. Look for a deal on Groupon, LivingSocial, CapitalDeal, or AmazonLocal that reduces the cost by half. Because the food is not great .... the best time is the Sunday brunch cruise. That cruise... More
