Very fun - plus the "way" to see the city and fortifications & tunnel under the citadel

Well worth the price of the tour - ongoing narration both in French & English adds greatly to the experience.

Very enjoyable boat ride, not only for the views, but also for the "adventure" of passing through old locks and navigating a tricky tunnel under the Citadelle fortifications. Recommended.

A definite day trip not to be missed. The scenery is absolutely stunning and the guides on board do talk english. The Walk to the Waterfall isn't too far, and its lovely walking past lots of wooden lodges selling various items. The Waterfall is absolutely stunning, the cascading waters make it really peaceful and serene.
