Kunal the guide / host / driver is special. He’s highly knowledgeable, courteous, meticulous and has a refreshing sense of humor. He’s the single reason we enjoyed the tour immensely despite a half washout due to foggy and rainy weather. Will truly miss his company!!

A truly wonderful night. Staff were lovely and the food was very enjoyable. I was surprised though that the staff did not walk around offering to fill glasses up as guest had to go to the bar themselves. I would definitely recommend this event to others.

Dinner was delicious & great choices to choose from. The service & the cleanliness of the boat was wonderful. It wasn’t squashy with guests either. Highly recommend.

Henry and Jack were really amazing and so supportive we enjoyed the journey with Henry's engaging and funny conversation while Jack's driving the cruise safely.

Terry was Great. I really enjoyed my whole trip. We went to beautiful places in blue mountain. Terry is a photographer as well, did beautiful photoshoot.
