The one day Back water cruise was excellent. Beautiful day to simply hang out and take in the sites. I liked that we were picked up from our hotel and then driven to the cruise. The on board staff were pleasant and cooked us a delicious meal. I would definitely recommend this Back water day cruise to others.
It is a must and I enjoyed it a lot .The driver was good.
