This experience was good, but not great. Most of the experience was inside the boat, which defeated the purpose of enjoying the river ride. We were outside for approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Dinner was then called inside the boat followed by a live show. This lasted the entire time on the River. So you can eat and return outside and miss the show or stay inside for most of the ride and miss seeing the sites outside.
