the cruise provided a good overview of some of the history of Memphis and the role the river has played in Memphis. We had the good fortune of a very pleasant day and took the 90 minute afternoon cruise. The tour guide was entertaining and informative.

This dinner boat cruise is well worth it. There was dancing, food, live band and the Mississippi. I would suggest this cruise to anyone visiting and looking for fun! Perfect night out on our anniversary!

I actually wanted to explore this activity as it would expose me to some very interesting facts about the mighty Mississippi...And while the guide was beyond excellent in his depiction and humor about the river's history,it didn't go far enough.I am a history teacher and I heard nothing about the slave ships or slave related escapades that occurred...that diminished my...

This is the second time we've visited Memphis in the last 4 years and we've taken the dinner/music cruise cruise both times. It was a fun evening on the Mississippi River. The food was very good. It was much better than any other riverboat cruise meal that I have eaten. The music was good and it was a lively atmosphere.... More

I have flown over the Mississippi many times, but never seen it on land - wonderful boat ride! Not crowded. Our tour speaker was so funny, exactly what a paddle wheel ferry guide should be. He kept the kids interested and told the best stories and lore about the river. Can't believe how wide and fast it was! Enjoyed our... More

The inside dining area was way too crowded. The quality of food was not what would be expected. The weather conditions made going outside impossible. So you were stuck inside for most of the cruise

Had lovely afternoon on the river despite it being a cold day. Guide excellent and full of information. Thought we might have gone further down the river but still far enough to enjoy. Lovely old boat. Snacks and drinks available. But not very well signposted and nearly missed where we had to go with few people directing us to somewhere... More
