I had been on the champagne cruise and really loved it. Unfortunately the architecture tour didn't meet expectations. The guide was just not that great...it was kind of like a lecture I didn't want to sit through.

The boat, staff and food & Wine were great. The Architecture guide stated that he was going to "geek out" on architecture but as a native New Yorker I knew ALL of the items he mentioned and found it to be a supremely lazy and uninformative...continued

This was a very informative and enjoyable cruise. The AIA guides were very knowledgeable, though one female guide on the June 26th cruise was inaudible and seemed tentative about the facts. The other two guides were very good. I would highly...continued
