DISAPPOINTED! My parents, boyfriend, and I took the dinner and music cruise to celebrate my parents' birthdays. It was ridiculous how crammed they packed us in. My Dad was barely able to move and was bumped into several times during his dinner as people tried...More

This was a delightful experience as we took some time from our busy touring itinerary and relaxed with the afternoon riverboat cruise. Our guide entertained us with historical stories regarding the river and events that took place near or on the water and it's banks....More

Took the family on the Riverboat cruise the other day and had a great time. We had plenty of room to move around, especially on such a windy day where going below was a nice option. The guide was excellent, giving all kinds of interesting...More

Took the river boat trip, not the city tour. As others have said you see the Mississippi River as it flows by Memphis. That's the scenery. We found the trip very enjoyable and entertaining. Our guide touched on many aspects of the history of the...More

We booked this as thought it would be a good experience. The boat was very run down and needs a total refurbishment. The guide just rambled on for 90 mins and kept laughing at his own jokes at one point I dozed off as it...More

What an enjoyable evening. Buffet style dinner was good and the live music was awesome. They have almost everyone up and dancing. And their wide music style accommodated all the requests that came their way. If ever visiting Memphis again, I would certainly do this...More

We took a little trip along the Mississippi on the island queen. The trip lasted around 90 mins. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a continuous commentary during the trip and kept us all interested. Refreshments were available but no hot drinks- would...More

This part of the Mississippi is really ugly. The commentary and history made this worth the cost. I have to give credit to the gentleman who told the stories and worked very hard to make the cruise interesting. We learned lots about the area. The...More

The $20 fee for a 90 minute ride up and down the Mississippi is a fair price for the activity. Make sure you are able to hear the commentary, because that's all there really is to this. There are no real "sights" to behold other...More

We expected just a nice little boat ride on the Mississippi River. Instead we got a delightful, informative and humorous 2 hour history lesson that was a treat and made the trip even more worthwhile. The tour guide was quite an interesting and interested personality...More
