Good but not great

Much of the time was spent picking people up and dropping them off at various locations. Instructions were sometimes confusing. However, the tour was overall interesting. More time spent at the sites visited would have helped.

It was a fun cruise!

The river view of the city adds a different perspective and the barge traffic was interesting to view.
