We enjoyed this tour very much. To see the city at a 360-degree experience on the river was amazing. The speaker was knowledge, informative and easy to talk to. I wish I had taking this tour years ago.

Tour guide was great! Answered all questions and more. The lake was choppy and we got splashed a few times but it made the trip even more fun! The captain even checked on a boat that looked like it was in trouble. All around a great trip and experience!
