Very nice, peaceful, relaxing, and informative boat tour. I mainly loved 2 things. First, the tour guide did not talk too much. She was very informative when passing by historic sites, etc, but also did not just keep talking and making filler conversation. There was ample time to just sit in peace and enjoy the lake. Second, we got to see both the US (Detroit) side and the Canada (Windsor) side with history for both. Overall, I highly recommend and would do it more

Interesting and slow paced river cruise of the Detroit River. You are able to see Detroit and Windsor - two countries for the price of one. Boat does provide a bathroom. Snacks and drinks are available for purchase. There is also indoor and outdoor seating, with much of the outdoor seating being under cover. My only suggestion would be to add more info regarding Detroit more
