We took the dinner cruise. Had a table for two--good. The pork BBQ was excellent. Music was awsome. However due to the seating we could not see the band or dance floor. The boat could use some upgrades.

A 90-minute tour on the river, very amusing, knowledgeable and friendly guide. 20 dollars each so good value. Food and drink is available on the boat but we didn't partake so cannot comment. Overall a different way to see the city of Memphis, to learn...More

Food is ordinary and I guess what you would expect for this sort of trip. Well organised and friendly enough on board. Music was good but not exactly jazz as you might expect in this region.

My three girlfriends and I were visiting Memphis, and this riverboat cruise seemed like a perfect compliment to our visit. Very disappointed however. Parking is very far away, so be prepared for a long walk to dock. The weather was cold and cloudy, not the...More

A river trip on the Mississippi was must for our visit. We expected a long winding trip but in fact it just went between the two bridges - as far as you could get in an hour and a half. The live commentary was very...More

Guide was humorous, but too much info on bridges...would have liked to hear more about Memphis and the history and details about the real riverboats...

It is best to have it printed, but there are friendly folks on site in the gift shop to help you print. They might just look at your phone, but I am not sure. Plan to arrive 20 min early to take care of this.

I would strongly recommend an evening cruise. The sun during the day can be extreme and sometimes makes it difficult to enjoy the sights. It will be cooler in the evening. The dinner cruise will be more expensive but it... More
