Mom is in a wheelchair and we wanted to take her for a boat ride on the river. This was perfect and she loved every minute of her time on this ride. Thank you! We will be doing this again.

Views were Amazing from the boat and the tour guide was very entertaining. The River is Beautiful. I would recommend... More

Taking the Spirit of Peoria on a pretty fall day is a relaxing way to spend the afternoon. We boarded at noon for a 12:30 departure. The luncheon buffet was average: fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, lasagna, and rolls. The scenery along the river was pretty on this fall day. The cruise lasted until 3 pm. Staff was pleasant and... More

With my niece and her kids visiting, we decided to ride the Spirit of Peoria. A relaxing ride on a beautiful river. Seeing the city from the river side was very interesting with information I didn't know, even though I have lived her my whole life.

Group of 12 friends enjoyed our 90 minute trip on the Spirit of Peoria. We had a groupon, so we saved on price of admission. Drinks are reasonably priced. Seating includes rocking chairs and regular chairs on all decks, and there is an air-conditioned area with tables and chairs. If you want to hear the pre-recorded tour, find the speakers... More

Returned to the Spirit of Peoria for a private event. Boat is lovingly maintained in keeping with its history. Good service and boat, including restrooms very clean. Glided slowly down the river which was as smooth as glass for the two hour cruise. Had all ages on board. Highly recommend. Children enjoyed it very much. Great place to take out-of-towners... More

Have done the trip several times for several years. I would recommend the 2 hour trip for anyone who has the time. Wonderful way to see Peoria from the river. The fall trip is a great time to see the beautiful tree changing colors.
