I was impressed by the quality of this one hour sight seeing trip. We covered the three rivers. The narrative was given by a very pleasant young woman, as opposed to a scratchy recording. She did an excellent job and sounded liked she enjoyed doing it. It was not a rote recitation. She handed the narration off to a mate... More

Just okay... Ship needs to be updated!!! Low end tables and stairs! Glad we saw ship during daylight before booking dinner event on boat., with price we paid for one hr tour, ship needs updating. Very pleasant one hr., hearing local charm..Needs to be longer. Just a little low end all around. Drop prices!

Because the food is not good. We went with a group of 10 and it was a beautiful evening spent with friends.But the food left a lot to be desired. Spinach salad with warm bacon dressing, very salty ground sirloin steak, very buttery breaded chicken breast and carrots. We all were disappointed. After dinner we all went outside to the... More

Had tickets for an 8 o'clock sightseeing cruise, and was excited to be able to see a sunset on the water. Unfortunately for us, it was the Steelers first preseason game and there was a line a mile long of Steelers fans waiting to be shuttled. The staff obviously underestimated the amount of fans and they only had 2 boats... More

I used to live in the Pittsburgh area so I had been on one of the cruises a long time ago. We were back to the area for a visit and I thought this would be a fun way to see the sites. I was right!!! We had a beautiful Sunday afternoon to take a one hour cruise on the... More

We went on the Pirates Voyage Dinner Cruise. My kids ages 6, 9, and 10 LOVED it. They put on a musical performance after dinner. It was a bit long but the kids were very into it. We love floating around the city first in the daylight, and then in the darkness. SO BEAUTIFUL!! The price is reasonable and most... More

We took a one hour sightseeing Cruise in the afternoon. It was a lovely day with abundant sunshine. The guide was entertaining and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and we're very glad that we took the cruise.

We recently took an hour cruise tour. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour, it is a great tour for the price. We really enjoyed how you could move around on the boat as you listened to the tour guide. We really learned a lot of history of Pittsburgh from the tour guide and captain. It was a fantastic time!

What a wonderful Staff on the Gateway Clipper Empress. Our Server Tyler was wonderful. The Staff couldn't of been more helpful. Our experience was above and beyond our expectations. The food was terrific and the atmosphere was lovely. Thank you Tyler and the Staff for making the experience so fantastic.

I lived in Pittsburgh for the first 30 years of my life and now that I'm 65 finally took a 1 hour tour of the city from the river vantage point. We brought our granddaughter to visit a city she has always heard about and never experienced, and thought this was a way to show her a lot without a... More
