Lovely river cruise

I really enjoyed this 1 hour river cruise up the Sacramanto River and back. While I wouldn't describe it as 'historic' I would definitely say it is informative. The boat goes at the right speed to get a fair way upriver, but still making it possible to snap some photos. There is a bar onboard offering various refreshments and snacks.
