100% recommended Great experience !!! Book online very easy. Very important to look at the address that comes in the description!!! They are smaller boats or boats, but with all their luxury, similar to being on a yacht, NOT like the ones just below the Torre de Oro, where you have to sit on plastic chairs, and on top of that pay more. Ecological, modern, luxurious, very friendly and attentive staff, the walk was wonderful, with explanations about the most important things to look at. They also have bar service!! We have enjoyed a lot!!!!

This was a very pleasant break in the heat. We were all by ourselves (8 in our group) on a super eco boat (solar cells on the entire roof). Plenty of space and very clear commentary in the speakers from a pre-recorded tape. We also bought a very cold drink on the boat. It was an hour we'll spend and value for money. Also no voucher or paperwork had to be printed out.

I had a little trouble finding the meeting place, which was a bit hidden by the vegetation (it's the small iron gate). I contacted the number listed on my reservation and had no problems. The gentleman was very kind and guided me. The staff on board were very helpful. Unfortunately, the hour passed too quickly! Pleasant walk.

Very relaxing hour on the river. The boat was lovely. Really clean and friendly staff. Comfortable way to travel, and much much better than the bigger boats where they cram you in and sit you on plastic seats.

The captain and his staff were very friendly throughout the tour. We highly recommend them. Thanks for your kindness.
