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 of the limited history of the city; the tour guide on the mic was more like a stand up comic, Southern style, rather than a purveyor of sights and facts. The boat was well worn and basic. Overall, it was "ok". Be prepared to pay for parking, wait for about an hour for the boat to embark (unless you want to get there at the last minute and have a tough time getting a seat) and also have a walk to the dock.

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 Soda and beer and some light munchies. Bottled water and soda we $2, ask for the soda without ice, it's a better value! We enjoyed our tour guide he seemed to know his stuff and did not feel canned.

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 again in the future!

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

This might be an enjoyable experience for people who know what they are signing up for but for us that was not the case. We were thinking fun, live music, southern food, party river boat experience—this is not that!! It is a 90 minute history lesson on a boat that circles the same 1-2 miles of the river with a small concessions stand. It was hot, we were bored and would not recommend it to anyone who doesn’t love history!
