I truly don't know how this business gets customers. I encountered the worst customer service experience with them, I used a coupon code to purchase my Sunday dinner cruise for two. Totaling $60 for both tickets($30 each). They called a week before the dinner cruise to tell us our Sunday cruise had been cancelled because they didn't have enough people... More

We went on The Good Ship Lollipop, which is not just for children. We sat on the top while the children on the trip went below for entertainment. We were told about the buildings and bridges of Pittsburgh while cruising on the river. We went by the stadiums where the Steelers and Pirates play, and saw people kayaking on a... More

My boyfriend and I had found this tour on Groupon, bonus that it just happened to be right next door to the hotel I was staying at. We decided last minute to take the tour and they even held the boat a minute for us to board. We got a one hour narrated tour of Pittsburgh by the river. Our... More

We went on the Friday night dinner cruise. The food was wonderful, the singers were great and interactive, the captain was courteous, and the view was beautiful. We would definitely do it again.

I've now been on the Gateway Clipper Fleet several times. The first was a sightseeing tour when I was 7; the next, another one-hour sightseeing tour when I was 23. And this Easter, I went on the two-hour brunch bruise. Each time, the Gateway Clipper has provided an incredible experience, great views and narration and just overall, I would say... More

A trip on the Gateway Clipper is a must for all tourists or even residents. The boat goes down all three rivers past the Point and explains various places of interest. It is very relaxing and has both an open deck and a closed deck for variety. It has a place to eat or drink also. There are several cruises... More

I took my wife on a dinner cruise and the bbq cruise. I have never had a bad time on this boat. You learn alot about the city on the tour. We had a great time and the food was really good.

We used the clipper to get to and from the Heinz field for the game. The boat only starts going over 2 hours before the game. Would of been nice to have an earlier trip over so that we would be able to see more and do more before the game. Once on the boat, we waited awhile for the... More

We went on the 12:30 buffet cruise. The trip was great. They are very handicap friendly and accommodated my wheelchair with no problems. The buffet was varied and had something for everyone. The highlight of our cruise was the snow during the entire cruise.
