Audio was horrible, could barely hear. Asked workers about it and nothing was done. There were about two speakers working on the whole boat and maybe 100 people trying to hear while social distancing from these small speakers.

It was a bit hard to find the departure location. It’s literally on the river between the cross streets. You will see the sign for the operating company but it’s a FAR distance from there. The tour itself was good. It was exactly 45 minutes. They did come around periodically to ensure everyone was wearing a mask. If you like that this is for you. If you don’t think carefully before booking. Lastly, you can’t take alcohol off the boat so keep that in mind when buying drinks.
