The tour was good however I was expecting a little more considering there was morning tea and a wine tasting involved. I felt like there should have been more snacks offered for the morning tea however I do understand that there are limited resources when serving this on a boat.

It was a great tour - the only thing I’d say is the description of the tour didn’t quite match up - the snacks was just a muffin/piece of cake and the wine sampling was 3 tiny wines. Overall great tour but a bit misleading
