The bus ride was okay. No narrative or history of the town. No businesses open and really no info about the city. Would have been nice to see a bit of the country side. Boat was informative . A bit rainy that afternoon, but the trip was good. Liked the open market.Spent $$ on jewelery. Very good selection
