Good experience!

Enjoyed the environment! Great drinks. Thought the food and dessert was average for the price! Salad was not great. Just an average meal! Would have been amazing if the food was better.

Not a great value

Food was ok. The music was not lively enough. For the money, there is much better value on one of the other tours.

Over charge

I paid the trip total $866 for 4 persons however when we got there they print out the ticket only $645. So your company charge a lot different then the actual price. That not good I always purchase all the tour from your company but I could not believe this.

Beautiful dinner, great views
David_C

I sent my parents on this trip. They had a wonderful time. Very thankful for this experience. They were visiting from out of town, and they said they were the only ones gawking and looking up at the buildings the whole time. Definitely very enjoyable. Only critiques: - They did say that the temperature on board was a bit chilly. They did understand that it can be difficult to control the temperature in a satisfactory manner on a boat like this though. - It was a bit hard to click and go right to this review If those are the only two critiques I can come up with, I think that means you all are doing pretty well.

Never found the dock and nobody to help, called to the line and the operator told me it was kind of tricky to find the place.

Too Expensive for what it was
Todd_E
, Sep 2021
I thought it was very nice although very expensive for what it was . They said the cruise would be 2.5 hours to 3 hours and we were done in two hours. They should at least give a glass of wine or champagne customary for $150.00 per person. Why would they not go up the north ranch of the river and I thought it would have been a narrated architecture tour.

Some windows are really dirty which kills whole city cruise idea. Food is ok but not even close to the price you are paying for it. You have selection from 3 prepared before meals and they just heating and serving them

Great cruise, great staff
Geoff_T
, Aug 2021
The boat was very comfortable, staff were very attentive, the food was good, and the drinks were very well made. The route was great for seeing the downtown area at night. The music was a bit loud for our liking (no one was dancing for most of the cruise), but the song selection was great.

OK in nice weather but but poor value
Stephen_S
, Jul 2021
I was a beautiful night which made it an OK experience. VERY pricy. Empty table by the window-had to ask MULTIPLE times if we could move even after boat cast off. Food edible but not fabulous. Dessert was mini buffet of dried out cake squares. I wouldn’t do it again. I Would do a different boat ride and dinner at a nice restaurant(There are many) over looking the river in the future.

Bad directions!!!
James_L
, May 2021
We never made it!!! The introductions that were written for people to find the meeting location were wrong!!!! False advertising to get you to buy with them! The website saids free cancellation the whole way on there website until you hit the purchase button and you get a message that saids...not refundable and no cancellations. When we finally got to the dock, we see the boat still sitting on the dock and they say sorry, but the boat already left! Yet, it was still there. Save your money!!!!!! Our one and only chance to have done a dinner cruise gone! Gifted them over $350 of our hard earned money and still had to go out to dinner somewhere else. No money spent. They have no remorse and don’t even offer at least some incentive for you to book again with them.

It was very beautiful, the staff was very friendly. The food was amazing and delicious. We celebrated our 4th year wedding anniversary. They sat rose paddles on our table, it was everything we could have asked for.😊❤
