    Great experience - fantastic staff
    Tracy_D, Apr 2024
    This tour was really great, thank you. Frank and Justin (staff) made it extra special. They were very accommodating and went out of their way to chat and get to know everyone. They put on a lovely spread (food), well done. Thanks for everything
    disappointing
    Silvana_S, Apr 2024
    We did this activity on a rainy and windy day. We had purchased the tickets days in advance and had no cancellation. On the boat there is no space to shelter from the cold or the rain so we had a really bad time. We don't understand why they don't cancel the activity if the boat is not prepared for days like this.
    Awesome trip
