The Steamboat Natchez is the last paddlewheel ship still operating in New Orleans. And this is the only tour where you get a private look around the boat and the engine room, complete with souvenirs and front-row dinner seats.
The Steamboat Natchez Dinner Cruise was Awesome !!!! For a Few bucks more make sure you get the VIP as it is well worth it. Our Host Bruce was Courteous, Friendly, Helpful, and Most Attentive to all of our Requests! Great Food too !!!
We decided to go for the VIP option and it was fantastic. We were treated by Yvonne who took really good care of us. We started off with a drink and an appetiser. Then we met the captain who took us on an engine room tour. As we had finished our first drink, Yvonne organised another one one and brought it starlight to us during the tour. We then relaxed in our reserved seating outside. Yvonne then escorted us downstairs to our reserved seating in the dining room where we were able to start at the buffet before anyone else. The free bar options allowed us to get drinks at any of the bars. At the end we got a great goody bag. It was a very special experience and well worth the cost
LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this VIP experience!! was everything the description stated and more! So glad we chose the VIP extra options as well as the open bar.
Thought this would be an average trip. One of the best trips I have done from the personalized boat tour to the meal choices, live dixie music, and the boat ride itself this is a must do if you are in the area. If you are worried about being on a boat or on the water, not a problem as the boat is very very stable.
Very nicely done, made us feel like real VIPs, our guide was very attentive and the ship tour was fascinating.
Very enjoyable tour. We were treated like royalty. The staff on the steamboat couldn't do enough for us. Very nice meal in comfortable surroundings. Very informative private tour of the boat escorted by a crew member. Probably more suited to the males among us who find engines etc fascinating but it was interesting to see what makes her go. Don't know how they can work in that heat in the engine room!! Good music to accompany the trip up and down river arriving back in the dark to see New Orleans lit up at night. Thank you for the extra little gifts that give us many happy memories
The plantation tours were excellent, the swamp boat tour was the best. Got up close and personal with Brutus the largest alligator in the river. If you go don't miss the swamp boat tour.
This was one of the best tours that we have ever been on. We received first class treatment from the time we arrived at the dock to the time we left the ship. Our host for the evening was wonderful and we truly appreciated his hands-on approach. Thanks again for a wonderful time!

Great tour. We were truly treated like VIPs. Great experience!!
Highly recommend the VIP package. Our guide, Jordan, was simply superb. We were treated like VIP's due to his attentiveness. There was no wait in line, three tables were reserved, one directly in front of the band, the second outside along the railing, and third private table for dinner. With the captain of the vessel leading the tour it was very informative.
