It is always fun to be out on the river and this is a very affordable way to do it. Nice and low-key. Wish there was more outdoor seating but I like the funky boat. Thanks for a great day.

A knowledgeable tour guide provides each 45-minute passage with layers of historical narration and interesting facts to the rhythm of the boats' beat-boxing engine.
