Really nice experience - you get beautiful views of the city from a different perspective. The staff is really friendly and the “non official” guide gives you very interesting tips and info in a super funny way - facts you wouldn’t know about otherwise. I’d definitely do it again, with friends or family. Really good idea for tourists/visitors

Absolutely brilliant. The captain (who is not a tour guide) sounded exactly like one. Very informative and funny. The vessel was very clean and the staff were incredibly helpful. Bar prices are not bad, around £5 for a beer. I would really recommend this return tour. Thanks everyone, it was brilliant:)
