Traveler Tips


There is plenty of food so don't feel compelled to rush up and queue.
This is a nice experience for anyone interested in furthering their knowledge about the Savannah area and having a pleasant experience.
It’s fine, but if you’re interested in the history of Savannah take the trolleys.

Hearing some of the history. Enjoying the perspective of Savannah from the river. The ability to get drinks on the boat, although you were out of frozen lemonade but she made a frozen strawberry instead.
Very good

Sightseeing Cruise
LaVonda_D, Aug 2022
It was a nice experience to coast along the Savannah River and learn about the history of the area. The narrator (on 7/30/22) did a phenomenal job.
Just ok
Jen_A, Aug 2022
The boat itself was really beautiful. Scenery and tour content were a little underwhelming. It was an extremely hot day, and the line for the bar was way too long.
Great River Cruise!
Michael_S, Aug 2022
Great river cruise. The ship is in incredible condition and the historical narrator was fantastic. I would highly recommend this cruise to anyone.
Needs shade and seating
Jodi_L, Jul 2022
The day we went was very hot and that’s ok but the is not enough shade on the rooftop deck at all!!! And inside there is not enough seating. It was packed and we couldn’t wait to got off.
Fun, but bring your own water if you don't wanna spend half the cruise in line for a drink
Jeff_B, Jul 2022
It was a nice little cruise, but it was brutally hot and there was nowhere to get water without standing in line for the bar for 30 minutes. They need to hire another bartender(only 1 for what jad to be 150 people) and provide free water, maybe as a self-service station. There wasn't even a water fountain near the restrooms.
Great introduction to Savannah riverfront!
Allison_B, Jul 2022
This was a great way to beat some of the summer heat, since you get a bit of a breeze on the boat. I can't remember our tour guide's name (so sorry!), but he was great - knew a lot of history and was pretty funny too. Our bartender was a total sweetheart as well, and the drinks were both strong and tasty. During this tour our guide pointed out the "Plant Riverside" part of the newer waterfront, and we walked over there that evening to catch some live music and watch a storm roll in - it was a great time and something we would never have known about if not for this riverboat tour. I'm so glad we went!
Beautiful cruise- highly recommend!
Madison_G, Jul 2022
The Savannah Riverboat Cruise is a must when in Georgia! It was a fun experience and allowed you to see a lot more of River street than you maybe could on foot. We had a great time!
Nice experience
Edgardo_D, Jul 2022
Food was great! Narrator was excellent. Bathrooms were disgusting to the point that I couldn’t use the restroom without holding my breath.
Not worth it
Melissa_L, Jul 2022
Not worth the money. You don’t see much but tractors and cargo ships. Drinks are all full of sugar and no alcohol. Bathroom was disgusting

The people on the tour and Craig. His stories kept us entertained. The different pubs were great too!!!
Cruising down the River
MichaelL_W, Jul 2022
This gave us a new perspective of Savannah by cruising down the river. The narrator gave us some interesting information about Savannah. It was very sunny while we were cruising. It would have been nice to have more shady areas. For example, more umbrellas over the tables.

Anisha_W, Jul 2022
We had a great time the tour was fun and informative. The drinks were not lacking... It did rain a little during our tour but they still made the best of it.
Savannah Riverboat
Phillip_S, Jul 2022
Great views and great information from the tour guide! Savannah is a fun city and it is the 3rd busiest port in the US, so viewing it from the water was a great perspective. Fairly priced tour too!
Relaxing on the riverboat tour.
