My initial visit to this business was with a Groupon. This is the second Groupon I have used for this vendor. I have recommended it to friends.

I liked the cruise a lot. I just hope that the tour guide is more pleasant to "everyone " on board and is not biased . I am not sure whatever reason he has to do so. Other than that he was good at his tour and with the information and some good jokes from time to time.

I enjoyed the cruise and the tour guide was very interesting.

What You'll Get

Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Take a proper water road ride with this Groupon.

About Riverfront Canal Cruises

In 1784, George Washington stood before the Virginia General Assembly, lobbying for a canal system that would connect the James River to the Ohio River via the Kanawha River. His vision began to materialize in 1789, when construction began on the canals, leading to further westward expansion and the canals becoming a hub of American history. Today, the guides of Riverfront Canal Cruises lead both public tours and private charters through the canal system, unveiling its storied past to passengers. The Canal Walk, for example, teems with historic significance, from hosting the world’s first successful electric streetcar system to having one of the world’s last functioning triple main-line railroad crossings. Throughout each tour, the boat’s cover keeps guests comfortable by providing shade and deflecting falling satellites.
