Very interesting trip. "Captain Jack" was great, even with his pirate jokes. Very informative. Took my 13 year old grandson who is not easily impressed and he had a great time.

Great way to spend an hour !! I highly recommend it! get there early & get a seat along the rail on the 2nd floor. !!

We took our grandkids for a birthday party and they truly enjoyed the river cruise!

It's about my 3rd time taking this cruise, but still no lees enjoyable.

Beautiful clean boat, easy to access, wonderful view and narration.
