The meeting point is not correct as shown by maps a. You have to go down to the harbor where the boat leaves. Unfortunately, the chat guide couldn't help me either ... Big drawback! Otherwise it was a relaxed, beautiful ride. Sit a little uncomfortable. Nice personel. We'll do that again.

A great tour that dove into the history of the area in relation to the Cold War. Our guide was very knowledgeable, as he grew up in the area, and could give us personal insight. Would definitely recommend.

The bad thing was that we did not get good weather but everything was fine A little more detailed the meeting place

A very nice tour. You can also get something to eat and drink for a very good price.

That was really really a nice trip ❤️ Thankyou ❤️‍
