    The boat and limited (8) people was all as described, and our host was friendly, as well as caring to the needs to those that got sea sick on what was little cloudy day and not a smooth sea. The experience is certainly recommended although like all such events satisfaction is also dependent upon factors outside the company's control. The snacks were probably a little less than described but the mixture of drinks OK. Three passengers got sick and the host took the boat back to drop some off early and then went back out again, showing flexibility and a willingness to give as much as he could.

    Very great tour! We really enjoyed the e-bikes as they are easy to use and make the trek up hills easier. Our guide George was great and even brought pictures along in his backpack to show us what certain parts of the city looked like in the past.

Covid restrictions meant that it was just our group with the tour guide. Ivan was very relaxed and friendly, knowledgeable, and gave a great tour. Scenic route yet friendly for segway beginners with minimal obstacles and time for practice in the beginning.

Too good experience with a great guide! Everything was niquel, a great visit with very good explanations, very interesting! Same for the helicopter and the boat, great activities!

David was excellent. Very informative and friendly guy who made the trip for a family of four including two teenagers really fun. Would definitely recommend the e scooter tour!

An interesting steady walking tour in the morning, the helicopter ride was the most enjoyable and a nice, relaxing boat ride to finish.

A great value for the cost! Of course a tour is only as good as it’s guide, an ours was excellent, and good company!
