Beautiful boat but the cruise left late and came back early. Food was average at best. I was disappointed in everything but the view.

We bought the Groupon for the one hour tour. The boat was nice and had an outside and inside area. They had speakers that were highlighting all of the landmarks on the tour. Amazing views from this tour. Would highly recommend.
