Interesting tour
Antonella
, Jul 2020
We had a tour last week, it was enjoyable even with the bad weather and poor visibility. The commentary was interesting and filled with historical, geological and botanical information. The guide was well informed and courteous. The boat is comfy, and there was good distance among passengers as per current Covid19 regulation. Stricter adherence to the face mask use should be implemented as seeing people carrying their masks in hand and others wearing them below their noses was upsetting and disrespectful. Masks apart, it was a very good experience and I'd certainly recommend it to anyone.
