Our guide, Barri, was great! Very informative and entertaining! The only thing was that it was confusing that our tour said the entire tour was from 9:30-12:30. We assumed that included the ferry boat. We didn’t realize until the bus tour was over that we would need to grab a shuttle to the ferry boat and that it didn’t leave until 1:00. It wasn’t a problem and everyone with Grayline that helped us was great, it just would have been nice to know the details beforehand.

The river boat was darling. The staff was friendly, the narrator was super knowledgeable and spoke clearly and engaging. The only things I thought was frustrating is that one of the staff members was painting some rails at the front of the ship and the smell was SO strong & hard to escape. Hard to relax in that environment. Also, the line for drinks/refreshments was so long and on a 90 min cruise, it’s a time suck.

The cruise was excellent, narration was excellent. If you decide to go don’t buy the souvenir drinks. I purchased a large drink for the wife, a small for myself.... it was almost $50.00 and the alcohol was not even noticeable

Everyone from the person at the trolley pick-up point (sorry, but do not remember his name) to our drivers/tour guides, Peter and Julie, were very nice and very accomodating.

It was nice, but would have been better if there was more outside sitting had to stand the whole time if you wanted to be outside on the riverboat the city tour was great
