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
The weather was perfect. The tour was very interesting too.
Excellent morning. The boat is good and the staff great. Good food with live Jazz. A small reasonably priced Gift Shop. Must do
I'VE SEEN MOST OF THESE PLACES FROM LAND, NEVER BY RIVER. THE RIVER IS THE REAL HIGHWAY
The tour was very informative got a good education on the damage Katrina did. The buffet was excellent! Would recommend to others who have not enjoyed the tour.
Loved the boat tour a great way to learn more about New Orleans.
Very relaxing since it was the first thing we did after a long drive from Florida to New Orleans.
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.
Really good tour just went to quick
This tour was amazing!
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!
