The boat tour was a great change from everyday vacation life. The boat was great with little loud music. On the other ships, loud music sometimes plays continuously. The crew tried very hard to accommodate us, the food on board was okay. Drinks prices were totally okay. We really enjoyed the trip.

Unfriendly personnel who does not speak English, terrible organisation, it took them half an hour to find our booking. No Corona measures whatsoever, not one of the employees wore a mask, no temperature check as indicated, crowded boat, 1 person lying directly next to the other on the upper deck, Corona certainly is blossoming here, the company should be reported. Tasteless food, no butterflies or any other living being except for the tourists in the "butterfly" valley.
