It was really nice, just I didn't like that how much crowded it was and people were sitting in chair just literally continuously in the open air side. But the workers was really nice and the amazing view. Also the best time to go in sunset is 18.15 guys

Fab boat tour. City is beautiful at night! Arrive early to be able to get a good seat as it was very busy but you are able to get up and walk around. Seating outside also. Highly recommended

I didn't have a guide for this tour. however, if you are just interested in the sightseeing of the wonderful iconic buildings, this is a definite yes. Please opt for late night cruises after 8.30 pm to enjoy the night life. we were welcomed with a sparkling wine drink to those who drink or mango juice to those who don't drink.

It was nice but too crowded so you have to queue in advance to be at the window and appreciate properly.

Make sure to be there on time, otherwise you’ll end up staying on the first floor, which was fine but the led blue light was too bright. Beside that, it was a really nice experience and I would love to do that again someday.

Nice mini cruise, does everything it promises, welcome drink and great view !! I do not give all the stars because the boarding was a bit chaotic, we had arrived first an hour before and we found ourselves in the middle of the crowd that entered without arrival criteria. In short, people who passed by all over the place without a real queue to enforce

It was great! Although I’d highly recommend getting a time when it’s completely dark out, don’t risk it by choosing the time of the sunset because if it’s a cloudy day (very likely) you won’t get a sunset view, you won’t get a nice lit up view of the Parliament and it’s really cloudy backgrounds.

This experience was incredible and worth every penny! The only con unfortunately is something out of the cruise operator control but could somehow be addressed with potential guests: the queue jumping. It was very disrespectful. We were 2 and chose the last cruise of the day (08:40 pm), we arrived before 8pm to be able to go in first and chose seats. There were already 6 people in line, divided in 2 groups. As dozens of more people started arriving everybody just started jumping the queue and disrespecting the order of arrival. People who got there before us were thrown to the back of the line and we would have been too if we didn't say anything.
