I went for the early evening trip and the weather was lovely. The tour down the river was peaceful and calm. The boat was not too busy and the staff were extremely helpful. The food was good and a very enjoyable evening.

I would suggest arriving early as seating is a mad house. We were relatively early, but by the time we got inside the boat, every seat with a view was either taken or saved. We ended up sitting on the deck. It was colder than we had prepared for, so if you go in the fall I would suggest bringing your winter gear and/or a blanket in case you too end up on the deck. The views from the deck were great and unobstructed, making great photo opportunities throughout the trip. We were very happy when we arrived back on shore as it was a very cold ride. Great experience.

This was a very relaxing 2 hour cruise down the Mississippi and my first trip on this boat. We loved the scenery and the narration, learning about this stretch of the river. Unfortunately, this was a cold, drizzly October day so the upper deck was chilly. The lower deck was packed with people and it appeared that few were interested in listening to the tour, instead just conversing with one another which made hearing difficult. This cruise would be great for birthdays of which one was aboard or groups who want to socialize. We did meet 3 interesting couples so had a good time. The price was well worth it.

A relaxed cruise up the Mississippi for one and a half hours round-trip gives a sense of stepping back in time. Cool breezes make even the hottest day enjoyable.

The price wad good, so was the ride and view. But the tour was recorded and it could have been more: no talk about the river, life around it (new or old buildings) wildlife, current items involving river, could have gone some towards city with more talk abought it and the parks.
