  • The State of conservation of this boat is awesome. perfect Woods, polished bronze, like freshly painted. It's a beautiful boat, one feels special thrill when approaching on the raft... once in cover hard to think that the crew were more than 200 people, it is as if it reduced in size to tackle it. It was one that had large interests in the area. We went from conception in public transport (value! are very fast to handle). One day something grey for the visit, but failed to overshadow a beautiful experience. The personnel of the Navy friendly and very clear in his instructions. Excellent disposition to answer queries and support with the pictures. You have to go Yes or Yes!

  • The tour is very well organized, that monitor is unique and you can appreciate the history with all the intensity of the war of the Pacific, if one knows and has good imagination obviously. Unmissable visit
