Very well

Maybe instead of a 2.30 hour break to eat I would leave it in two hours

Eine komplett touristische “Pauschal” Tour zu drei Punkten die man mit einer geführten Bootstour durchläuft… wie hunderte andere Touristen jeden Tag auch… eigentlich muss man nur am Hafen nach einem Platz auf einem der vielen Boote fragen…
