A small boat, so only the first 3 aboard got to sit outside at the start. The rest of us sat inside and couldn't see a thing.
When we got to the Canal the rest of us were able to stand outside, but were unable to hear the commentary. So it was a choice of seeing the buildings on the canal, or learning about them not both.

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.
