Nothing special with this tour. You sail around and watch te shores from the river. They have a small "shop" on board, in the middle of the boat. Mostly garments.

Don't rock the boat, well I don't know. Good and pleasant enough way to travel. But having a captive audience makes it easy for mum to fleece some dollars. Everything we purchased was available at the airport at a quarter of the cost. We don't...More
