Very professionally run cruise with very insightful commentary, awesome scenery and wildlife. What better way to spend an afternoon in the Riverland but cruising the great Murray river with a glass of Banrock Sauvignon Blanc and Oxford landing Shiraz! – with lovely platter of gourmet local produce. An amazing story of one mans vision to complete his dream boat over 14 years . Well done Sandra and James! Karen S
