Took this tour during a cruise stopover. Anna was the most amazing tour guide ever. Informative, funny and friendly. She left us determined to come back and explore one day, as the history was fascinating. Highly recommend this tour.

Yes. If you book with RC then you will go to the theatre on the ship. You’ll be given a group number and they will bring you directly to the Hippo boat. Enjoy
