Nice tour to see the city at night. I would recommend this if you enjoy kicking back with a beverage and seeing the city from a boat view. The staff was great. Comfortable ride that wasn't overly packed with too many people.

My husband and I enjoyed the cruise very much, and took some great sunset photos! My only suggestion would be to have it either a bit later, or a bit longer, so that the timing of the sunset and the lighting on the monuments would be better.
