Tour was amazing! With a variety of stops and an awesome tour guide like Dave (Greg) the tour was perfect! Would 100% do it again. Only thing is maybe would’ve brought water for the bus ride. Other then that the service at each stop, as well as with Greg having cooler etc for our wine & goods it was great!!

An excellent experience and I would highly recommend it. The boat was of good quality, the food was delicious and drinks were included. Everything was timed perfectly with a great cruise around the harbour and with some interesting and live commentary. A really enjoyable evening

Our guide Dave was fun and informative! The tour was great we saw so much of the city!

It is worthy. You could drink different kinds of wine in each stop.

Fantastic. Food, service and view of the harbor is great!
