This was our second time on the river. More than wonderful! The sights were many and varied. We took an offshoot into a canal where tings have not changed for 200 years in some places. It was an excellent way to see authenticity out of the way of the touristy parts. We also took pleasure in buying wares from two of the boats that approached ours. It was a lovely time spent on the river. I would do it again.
