No commercial gestures made despite my polite request. Flee!
No audio explanation of 6 bridges. Explanation was that their system was broken. No refund provided. The whole reason I wanted to take the tour was to learn more about the different bridges. Waste of time.
We took the 1 hour mini-cruise. This cruise goes a short way down the river, turns around, goes a short way the other way and comes back. There was not very much to see but worse than that it was impossible to follow what the auto narration was talking about. You get a set of headphones and you can listen in many languages. The problem is that there is no person pointing to what the narration is talking about. As a result it was nearly impossible to know what was being described. I would definitely not recommend the short cruise. The longer cruises may be a different story but this one is not worth wasting your money on. On a positive note, the person taking tickets was very friendly and helpful.
