Don't let the word small out you off. Jamie has a wealth of stories which he loves to share. His tour goes to places that reveals another side of this city that we hadn't experienced. Awsome!

This cruise was outstanding. Captain Chris and 1st Mate Suus were fun, informative, personal, and patiently answered any questions. You cannot go wrong with a Flagship Cruise, and be sure to request Chris & Suus!!

My personal opinion is that this is boring. After 20 min you want to get out of the boat and move around those streets and not to sit 2 meters under the level of streets with bunch of tourists.
