  1. Went on this Awesome Historical boat ride with my daughter and granddaughter saturday just gone . 30th April. it was a very pleasant and Amusing cruise. it was very entertaining with the 2 actors talking us through everything we we saw along the way. They certainly knew their History. There was a lot to see from start to finish. And the weather was lovely.
