The boat was comfortable, the speaker interesting, the wine good, and the nibbles tasty. The sound system worked well, and the speaker knew how to use it. It was a very pleasant and informative afternoon.

We loved the trip. We have taken the Architecture tour and this gave a different perspective. The guide was excellent. - Spoke without notes and was able to answer every question.

The boat is charming. (Our third trip.)
