As part of another tour, we received a one hour Lovers Canal Cruise. Our Captain was Flip, and we loved his entertaining, humorous approach to the tour, as well as his skilled expertise on the water. I would recommend a cruise with Flip any day!!

The commentary was not chatty. It left plenty of time for us to converse at our table. The captain pointed out beautiful sights and architecture, as well as told about five local stories. It was very pleasant.
