Louisa was excellent. The second half of the tour was excellent. The first half was spent staring at the outside wall of the former shipyard. There was nothing to see. Furthermore, it was unbearably hot. First, there was far too much time spent describing the former shipyard when the guide was so knowledgeable on so many other topics. Second, given that we could not see inside the wall, it would be much better to talk about the shipyard while sitting in the boat in the shade. Again, the tour guide was excellent. This suggestion for improvement is for the design of the tour itself.
Monica was great!
The tour was great and Matteo is fantastic. Great information. Absolutely loved the tour. The only improvement I would suggest is that because the boat was mostly covered and we had 11 people, only half of us could really see the full view at one time. Obviously if it was raining, it would be great but it was a beautiful day and it would be nice to have the boat uncovered for better views.
