Easy on off access. The narrator was great. We forgot to pick up our pictures. I think that a number should be given to you for easy pick up. During the excursion I saw two people walking around looking for people to give their pictures to. It looked as though they were not too successful.

we enjoyed the excursion and the narration by bradley. i would have given the experience 5 stars, except for the outrageous price of photo that was taken as we boarded: $38!!! many people were passing them up, as we did. we would have purchased for $10-12. apparently you would rather sell 1 at $38, than 5 at $10.

The river boat was darling. The staff was friendly, the narrator was super knowledgeable and spoke clearly and engaging. The only things I thought was frustrating is that one of the staff members was painting some rails at the front of the ship and the smell was SO strong & hard to escape. Hard to relax in that environment. Also, the line for drinks/refreshments was so long and on a 90 min cruise, it’s a time suck.
