We ordered... More

My husband planned a lovely time for us on the Gateway Clipper's Captains Dinner and Dance Cruise. We had our grandchildren and our son, his wife, nephew and his wife along to celebrate my birthday. There were birthday balloons and a full table for our crew to enjoy the evening. The minute I arrived my server made me feel that... More

1. The price was very high for what you got. 2. The acoustics were terrible. We tried to hear the person giving us information and history about the buildings and areas along the river and COULD NOT HEAR over the chatter that was escalating to a higher volume to offset the tour guide. 3. Food lukewarm, Prime rib could not... More

My husband and I just celebrated our 11th anniversary here with the Captains Dinner and Dance Cruise. It was wonderful! The food was delicious and very we'll organized. The band was fabulous and kept the party going all evening. The tour of the rivers was very insightful and offered great views.

We've taken several river tours in cities around the world as it's a wonderful way to get to know a city. These boats leave from just outside Station Square which is a vibrant update to Pittsburgh's waterfront. The boat was not crowded and the tour guide was personable but the narrative was uninspired. The experience would be greatly enhanced by... More

We had a great time on the Gateway Clipper. Our tour guy was upbeat and did not talk about common things you would hear about on a tour. He discussed uncommon facts about the city, which made it interesting. We went on a day and received discount passes. Make sure you check out the website first, they have 'Hot Deals'... More

I was so excited to take our kids on the Sightseeing Cruise. While $20/adult and $10/child seemed a little steep for a one hour ride, I wanted the kids to have their first real paddle riverboat experience. We arrived early, bought our tickets and showed the kids all of the beautiful boats docked there. The staff at the snack bars... More

Beautiful way to see the skyline at night. Food was food. A bit hard to hear inside and wish you could have your meal outside to enjoy the scenery.

I attended the Blues and Barbecue cruise on Friday, Sept 5th. I boarded the ship at approximately 7:30 and greeted and talked to people I knew on the cruise. I went upstairs to get my food at 7:50 only to find that you had run out of food and my food voucher was worthless. You didn't let people board until... More
