This tour would have been rated a 5 if the music had not been so loud. We sat inside because of the heat and sun. It was a GREAT selection of music, but you couldn’t even talk to the person sitting next to you because the speakers were so loud. Beautiful scenery.

We found the lake cruise to be quite enjoyable and relaxing. We were not able to sit where the music was, but we still enjoyed it. We thought it would be hot, but it was quite nice.
