We took this tour with friends who were local to the area and everyone enjoyed the scenic tour up and down the river. The boat offered light snacks, soft drinks, beer and wine. We had a great center table on the lower deck, inside and had a great view of either side of the river.

Friendly people. Comfortable riverboat - upstairs outside at plastic tables and chairs or downstairs at tables with large glass windows and a bar. The ride took a couple of hours and goes down the river a few miles and then back again. Nothing really exciting to see - people's backyards and you go under several bridges. This was a dinner...

Absolutely loved every minute of this pleasant cruise on the river made famous by Lewis and Clark. It was their last day for their 2016 season and the weather was stellar. It's nice that they have beverages and snacks too, but I was so busy enjoying the view and the relaxation of it all, I just never left the rail.... More

Our friends booked this boat trip for the 4 of us, following visits to Fort Mandan and the Lewis and Clark interpretive centre and it was a lovely change to be in a boat instead of the car ( we were driving from Denver to the Twin Cities). It was a lovely evening and we enjoyed a couple of drinks... More

You can tell this is a mock up of a riverboat but at about $12.50 a head it is a reasonable for an hour and a half ride on the Missouri. There is a brief narration about the Missouri and Lewis and Clark but afterward it transitions to country music. The views along the banks are mostly of riverside homes.... More

If you actually want to hear the narration and learn something about the Missouri River save your money and go instead to the North Dakota Culture Center & State Museum. The narration is pre-recorded with male & female narrators. The female narrator is harder to hear than the male, but both are difficult to hear in part because the volume... More

The Lewis and Clark riverboat is a great way to see the Missouri river. We took an evening cruise and it was very relaxing with outstanding views. The boat has seating on the inside for those enjoying a drink or food and on the outside for letting the wind blow through your hair. A great value, a fantastic view and... More
