We have a great time. Some passengers weren't very courteous but that's nothing anyone can control.

It was a nice little boat ride. At the groupon price is was definitely worth the money. I thought the ride would go South past down town but maybe there is nothing worth seeing from the river. It would be better to able to reserve either upper or lower deck ahead of time I think.

From Our Editors

When a major flood hit the Missouri River in 2011, it drastically changed the riverfront, creating new sights across its banks. With this fresh face, the river serves as a scenic stage for tours on the River City Star, a riverboat featured in USA Today's August 2009 article ?10 Great Places to Stream Through Cities?.

At the wheel of a classic, double-decker riverboat is one of River City Star's three captains, Captain Ken, Captain Dave, or Captain Steve. Accompanied by an expert crew, the captains ferry passengers over the serene waters that make up Omaha's riverfront. They pass by antique structures such as the historic Old Iowa-Nebraska Swing Bridge, and newer fixtures including the Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge, described in USA Today as ?a one-of-a-kind design that looks like an art installation across the river.?

On dinner cruises, cooks prepare a lineup of cuisine that changes monthly, as passengers dance to the sounds of live jazz or island music. Back on land, weddings unfold beneath a 40'x80' tent set up at Miller's Landing.
