Great evening on the river. Enjoyed the cruise and a good cigar. It was dinner-time - please add some food and increase the price... would gladly pay to have food in addition to cigars and the bar.

The cigar cruise was great! We had great weather and were able to enjoy the scenery and sunset while enjoying cigars, drinks, and making new friends. I would definitely recommend this cruise and would love to see more of them offered in the future!
