Jordan and Joe were very knowledgeable and friendly. The Alliance is a beautiful boat. Fun family outing, even for teens to agree upon.

This was a fun adventure. The boat sailed around the York River. The crew was excellent at the history of the area and pointing out exciting points of interest. Also let visitors help hoist the sails which was fun. Would definitely do this again.

Fun trip but not what expected. Thought it was a tour on the river but basically stayed in the same area in sight of dock and bridge. Not enough seating - uncomfortable - especially for older passengers. We are in our early 60s.

The crew were all kind, knowledgeable, and fun. They had no problem or issue with us asking questions. We will definitely do it again sometime! I highly recommend this tour!

Surprised my wife with a sunset cruise aboard the Alliance. What a great way to spend 2 hours for a very special occasion!
