This tour was a disappointment. The guide's English was fair but she spoke very quickly and this made it extremely difficult to understand what she was saying. She seemed to be a bit robotic and lacked much personality. Did not learn much from this tour. Would not recommend.
Could not see much as boat sat low in the water and could not see sights clearly .
