Is there any rating below 1 Star? Total waste of time. Worst river trip I have taken in any city. Absolutely nothing to see. 1 Star for getting 15 min nap on the boat.

I have to agree that we found this tour boring and regretted the time wasted when we could have been visiting a real tourist attraction. Staff on river trip were great.
