A very enjoyable trip. Great service at a fair price. The staff was super nice. We accidentally dropped a phone in the boat and they carried it to the ticket office at Alexandria, so we could recover it. We are so grateful to everyone who was involved in that.

On a hot and steamy Saturday night in August this was just the ticket for some cooling down time and relaxation with views you can't see unless you're on the water. A bit pricey but that's to be expected when you are in a tourist area
