Beautiful views from the lookout above Mannum. Beautiful river cruise. Lovely boat,Food was excellent, although the video they played during lunch advertising their river cruises was very very loud and difficult chatting with others. Excellent tour guide Phil had lots of information and stories to tell. Overall very much enjoyed.
