What People Are Saying About Mississippi River

It was not the best, tolerable. I would not recommend it for anyone

There was no courtesy or civility from those that work there. For ticket taking, they simply took the ticket. NO welcome aboard I am here to assist you, just "give me the ticket". Again there is no "put whatever items in your hand down remove your shades if you would like to, to take a picture", just quick snap a picture. NO please pose for the picture, just a snap of the picture. The male taking a picture of me, has the nerve to get an ATTITUDE, after he has snapped a picture of me with a water in my hand a purse in the other hand and shades on, my eyes. After I ask him what just took place, it went so quick I had no idea. He said I took a picture for you. I said "no, not with these items in my hands and shades on, could you please take another picture I can be willing to pay for, he took the picture with an attitude. The so called musicians playing jazz, NO WHERE near PROFESSIONAL music being played. Quite a bit of conversation NOT MUSIC went on, on the mic, the music played poor

Great tour guide and a beautiful plantation.

Loved seeing Oak Alley. The grounds are beautiful. The house is amazing. Our tour guide was very good and informative. She even took some time at the end of the tour to answer some questions. I believe her name was Chelsea? I can't remember for certain. I would highly recommend visiting Oak Alley. Although, I would try to do so during a week day if possible. Not sure if it would be less crowded during the week but it was very crowded on a Saturday afternoon.

Fantastic, relaxing & good value for money!

The trip was very well organised, I had to take my confirmation to the ticket office and pick up the tickets then queued to get on. A very informative guide, plenty of seats and very relaxing cruise up the Mississippi. When we turned around the Jazz band started playing and the lunch was served. A good amount of food to choose from and lovely staff. Overall a fantastic trip and would recommend it to anyone going to New Orleans.

The captain explained all the sights thoroughly.

Captain explained sights thoroughly. Every one of the crew very cordial and helpful. It was a very pleasant and relaxing tour.

A good overview of navigation and industry on the lower Mississippi ..

Interesting narration, coupled with the steamboat experience of the south. Buffet was fine, and the music was a nice touch....
