We took the afternoon sightseeing cruise and found it to be quite enjoyable. The Crewmate's narrative as the boat cruised was both educational and amusing. The 90 minutes fly by and it's a good value at 20 dollars. Parking for most riverfront events is difficult but you can usually find a decent spot at a pay terminal

Recently took the 90 min. riverboat cruise with 2 friends and was highly disappointed. The paddleboat was rundown, had a poor selection of drinks and snacks, route couldn't have been more than 2 mi down and upriver at a glacial pace, and commentary of the riverboat guide consisted of too many personal stories rather than history of the river as...

The guide made the trip. He shared a TON, more like 2 tons, of info about life along the Mississippi and Memphis past... More

Disappointed in the trip. Really don't go very far. Walking along the River just as good. The "guide" was pretty cheesy. Not worth the money.

My husband and went on the 90 minute sightseeing cruise. First, we have to say a big thank you to the crew who graciously waited for us as we were running late and had to get our tickets printed and they promised they would not leave without us. Luckily, we ended up only a couple of minutes late ! My... More

Went on the 90-minute cruise and enjoyed it a lot, even though it was rainy. Our Tour Guide was very funny and informative, enjoyed listening to him talk. Three levels on the boat, you can find a nice place to sit and enjoy the view or sit and eat snacks inside the dining area.

This 90 minute trip is very informative. The riverboat doesn't travel far but our guide imparted lots of interesting facts about Memphis and the Mississippi. There are drinks and snacks available on board. Definitely a good thing to do whilst in the city.
