We took the Sunday, 90 minute tour (get there early if you want an inside window seat in the a/c). We have been on too many river boat tours, so some of the excitement is no longer there. The tour was adequate in imparting some...More

We took a 2:30 tour, and it was about 90 minutes and our tour was $20. I didn't think that was a bad price! The boat moves very slow and does not cover a lot of ground on the river!! There is a bar with...More

We had such a great time! The food could have been better but it wasn't bad. The wine made up for it. The band was very entertaining. Also the best part was the view of the skyline and Memphis bridge. I would definitely do it...More

Adequate boat, uncomfortable chairs. Our narrator was nice but his narrative was canned and forced. I would probably not take the cruise again.

A bit expensive but worth it if a nice day to be outside. There is plenty of history shared during the trip. Food prices on board reasonable for this type of venue (water $2/bottle).

Boats are very tired looking and the food was of a very poor quality. We had a just warm undercooked chicken breast, beans, corn, awful pulled pork and a piece of what would pass as cheap birthday sponge for desert. By the time you've boarded...More
