I had wanted to book the dinner cruise, but it was full. The agent I spoke with recommended the late night dance cruise. Complimentary buffet was nachos with various toppings, taco salad (??), baked potatoes, and chicken (wings?). Overpriced drinks. The music was ALL rap type music and nothing we were familiar with. On the third deck, guests were using... More

We were only in Pittsburgh overnight, so we wanted to get as much information about the city as we could. This narrated cruise was just what we were looking for. Our guide was excellent! I wish I could remember her name. She had many interesting facts about Pittsburgh to add to the descriptions of what buildings we were seeing. Who... More

Good overview of Pittsburgh. Sit near the front if you want to understand anything the tourguide is saying. But don't sit in the front row, because the seats are very uncomfortable. Bar prices are not posted--ask before you buy. Lots of kids on this tour.

My family enjoyed a nice ride on the Gateway Clipper. The food and band were mediocre. Our servers were good, but at times hard to locate. Overall, the family had a good time. The amount that was paid for this event was overpriced for the variety of food that was served.

I heard about the Gateway Clipper river cruise before I arrived in Pittsburgh so I got online and booked a Friday evening dinner cruise. The tour around the three rivers in the downtown area while dining was a blast. The ship is located right next to the Sheraton at Station Square.

We had a great time on the Good Ship Lollipop, even though we didn't have kids. The tour included lots of history and facts about the buildings and rivers. Great way to see the city.

Great boat ride. We learned a lot about Pittsburgh and had wonderful views of the city. We did the one hour tour, the crew and tour guides were awesome. Well worth it.

We went there last night on the TGIF Dinner Cruise. It was wonderfully relaxing and peaceful, and I enjoyed it a lot. The view from the upper deck was great, though it is really upsetting that they allow people to smoke-there were babies, children, and pregnant women, and yet people were smoking freely. It is unconscionable that smokers just don't... More
