"It was our anniversary and our three boys chipped in to surprise us with this as a gift. The trip was amazing and fun with very nice people and the staff was great."
"Fortunately, I received this as a gift and didn't have to waste my own money. $100 per person for some finger sandwiches and a 2-hour non-eventful boat ride around the city? 48 people on a boat that comfortably fits 18? I could have ridden a ferry for free, had the same experience, and had a real seat. What a rip-off. Paying $100 per person to sit on the floor is ridiculous. Tourists are probably the only suckers that would enjoy this. A little boy was running around and spilled my girlfriend's drink on her. Why are there kids in the first place? I would not recommend this, based on the capacity of the boat and size of the group. "
"The sailboat champagne sail was amazing. The staff was awesome, can't wait to go back."
