The riverboat cruise was amazing. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the sites and so funny. When the sound system was acting weird, he never skipped a beat and would start singing to “test the system”. The boat ride was smooth and the boat itself was very clean.

Wear bug spray! Relaxing tour, so fun to have the slushies and refreshments on board also. I wouldn’t say it’s the most historic info in a tour but it was interesting to hear about the workings of the river commerce in Savannah and the river wildlife. A nice way to spend an hour and a half!

$77 for two for sightseeing cruise 1 1/2 hours long. Very scenic and informative. It was a chilly day but sunny and it was very warm on the upper deck I can imagine a hot day would be very uncomfortable up there. 2 upper decks for sightseeing and lower deck for lunch cruisers. My husband and I shared a beer for $25 after tip but he is hard of hearing and somehow they upsold him to a commemorative glass we had to walk around with the rest of the day rather than the plastic cup drink version. Shakedown for more tips as you exit. Overall an ok touristy thing to do. Nice clean boat and restrooms.
