Excellent tour, we did it at night, the beautiful view, the hot chocolate, the best we had, and the best, a jazz band playing live. The staff atiey very well. It is a luxury yacht cruise for up to 60 people, all comfortably seated at a table. From my perspective it fulfills the three B's, well, nice, cheap. Very good relation cost quality.
