Torrens River Cruise in Adelaide
It’s we who thank you!! From ringing to see where we were (oops waiting in the wrong place), very hearty welcome when we got to where we should have been and boarding the boat, the very friendly, informative and entertaining commentary and the river cruise it self, we couldn’t have enjoyed it anymore than we did. A great introduction to the city and enabled us to get our bearings of the city centre!! Thoroughly recommended and a great relaxing way to spend some time in Adelaide. Thanks guys!!! Bruce and Rhonda From Townsville, North Queensland.
