A very enjoyable cruise on the Natchez.
The line was a bit long, waiting to board, due to the popularity, but that's not a bad thing.
The cruise was well narrated and the jazz band on the return ride was very enjoyable.
Seats were available on the outside decks or inside, so you had a choice.

A fun cruise

Fantastic way to get a different view of the city and surrounding area. This tour is very informative and is the only true steamboat paddle wheeler operating on the river. Go for the meal option, it was good value and quite tasty.

Thank you for keeping the steamboat clean and running. I am 55 and my first ride on a river boat. I now understand the romance of the steamboat period. I could have stayed on a lived on it. Fun!
