Mississippi 1 Day Riverboat Tour

Hi

We are flying over the the US in July, and during our stay we will be passing through Mississippi, from New Orleans to Memphis.

We wanted to do a one day tour of the Mississippi, not overly fussed what part, but I am having trouble finding a good recommended place on the internet.

Can anyone recommend a good tour company for me?

Thanks

In New Orleans, you could check out the Steamboat Natchez. Alternatively, you could take the Algiers Ferry across the river for free in New Orleans.

I don't know of any day-trip sort of riverboats in Natchez; in Vicksburg, you could try http://www.msrivertours.com/

For something more adventurous in MS, you could try contacting this gentleman for a canoe tour: http://www.island63.com/

In Memphis you can book The Memphis Queen for a couple of hours guided cruise, then back on shore take the ovberhead tram out to Mud Island located in the Mississippi where you stroll along an acurate third of a mile long flowing model of the river as you see the real thing rolling along next to you on the other side. There's also a River Museum to check out there.
