Lovely leisurely cruise with terrific commentary. Grant knows his stuff, however, would have liked some history regarding the Nanda peoples of this area. Rays brews a nice cup of tea. A safe way to spend a morning.More

This cruise is lovely and offers stops in various places, wildlife viewing and historical comment. It's well worth the money and a great way to while away a few relaxing hours. Grant is hilarious in a very understated way.
