A little trouble printing tickets/ it would be nice if it could be emailed to company and they just look up. But all said it was a wonderful time. Nice lunch and very glad trip was two hours long!!!

Take sun screen. Also the meal was good, but the dessert was a thumbs down. For the price even with groupon, they could have made a pan of brownies and it would have been much better. Whatever it was was really gross:(

Pilot narrator was very difficult to understand. Also the website says concessions available. Popcorn and a couple candy bars does not qualify.

Captain Mikes narration was terrible. He was very hard to understand-he sounded like he was bored to death and reading from a script. The whole experience would have been so much better if the narrator had sounded the least bit interested in what they were describing of the river, scenery & navigation of the river. I also got roped into buying Lunch too as they said they do not do regular scenic cruises in October without purchasing the lunch also. The lunch was not worth the $11.25 person extra that we had to pay. The owner blamed that on Groupon & told me the groupon shouldn't have been extended into October by Groupon.

My only complaint was the drink I purchased at the bar. (Brandy & Water) The brandy was terrible. (rot gut) I don't know if it was some super cheap stuff or very-very old but I wouldn't have drank another one if they paid me to. Other than that the boat ride was very enjoyable

We had a great time seeing the Fall tree colors and learning a bit about the river history.
