The tour was a little slow and long, but the entertaining narration by the captain helped make the tour interesting and informative. The highlight is definitely the hydraulic lift lock pictured in the site's main photo.

Took my MIL for a trip down memory lane. She was raised in Peterborough and loved the cruise. Kids loved it too. The captain was informative and entertaining. We would go again.
