It was truly a wonderful tour and we enjoyed it very much. The private tour of the steamboat by the Captain was informative and enjoyable. I would take this tour again, should I ever return to New Orleans.

Fantastic evening! Wonderful food and the atmosphere great! We were treated royally from the minute we got there! Yvonne and Jasmine were the BEST! The boat ride was beautiful and the Captain did a great job on our tour of the engine/steam room! Loved the Jazz band and even took a beautiful gift bag home!

Had a wonderful night aboard the Natchez, well worth the money as we were definitely treated like VIPs and Leigh was a lovely chaperone and couldn't do enough for us and the goody bag was great full of little treats.

The only way to go is VIP through viator. Our guide Jordan met us at the canopy, took us to the shady side of the vessel, where he had reserved an outside table for us. Immediately brought us our champagne, and appetizer shrimp cocktail. His service from beginning to end was outstanding. The food at the buffest dinner was mediocre but the service was superb. I would highly recommend this Dinner Cruise to everyone. Linda

My friend and I took this amazing tour yesterday evening. From start to finish we were made to feel VIPs as our tickets suggested. The lovely Leigh met us before the gangway and looked after us throughout the evening, making sure everything went smoothly. A truly amazing night.

This was a wonderful cruise. We took the dinner cruise, and spent the extra for the open bar. Well worth it. We were well taken care of. The captain took us on a tour of the engine room as well. It is a truly remarkable machine. The only thing we missed was seeing the night lights of the city. We were on tour and then had our dinner while it was getting dark. I still recommend this as something to do in New Orleans.

We had a great night on the Natchez. Don't remember saying it was our anniversary we were celebrating on our holiday. However we were given a fantastic memorable night by Leigh and the Captain and other staff. I would love to come back and do it all over again. The buffet was lovely especially the beef and plenty of it as well. I can't recommend this trip enough. I think you must do this trip if you are in New Orleans . Top notch!

We were met at the dock by a charming young lady who escorted us to the dining room and our reserved table. SHe ordered us complentary champagne cocktails and brought us a gift bag with momentos to remember this occasion. The ships officer took us in tow after dinner and gave us an interesting tour of the engine room and the wheel.
We left the ship feeling that this was the best part of a very rainy vacation.

If you want to be treated like a rock star…..purchase the VIP dinner cruise! We were greeted by our personal guide (waiting for us…holding a sign with our name). From there we were escorted to the top of the steamboat, front table, to enjoy the jazz band that was playing. 2 minutes later we were handed a champagne cocktail. About 20 minutes later, our guide escorted us to greet the captain, who took us on a private tour of the engine room and the history of the boat. We then sat outside watching the sun start to set, when our guide found us and took us to the dining room. We were greeted with glasses of wine, appetizers and two gift bags (who knew!). Before anyone was granted access to the dining room, we were through the buffet line and seated for dinner. Our guide gave us tips on when to go outside to take photos of the city lights, and checked on us to ensure we were comfortable. The gift bags were so cool! Each contained a 2-cd set of the jazz band (who also had a PBS special), two engraved champagne glasses, two can wraps, and a few other little goodies, plus two photos of us as we entered onto the steamboat. And that’s not all! When we docked, we were led to the front of the group so we could be first off the boat. Staff was so darn courteous! Totally worth it.

It was wonderful! We were treated like celebrities, the food was amazing...much better than my expectations of a buffet, the music was fun, and the scenery gorgeous. We highly recommend Natchez, but especially the VIP tour.

Very interesting, especially the tour of the engine room. We were treated like VIPs which made a lot of difference as the boat was quite full.
