  • We had a lovely tour with Owen, who seemed genuinely intrigued with the history of emigration and the ship itself, therefore he really brought life into the stories. The history of the ship is very interesting and being inside and hearing the stories about emigrants gives you a pretty good idea about how life was back then. My personal favorite on this trip.
