I was part of a Road Scholar Program last month that was touring the Upper Mississippi River area and a cruise on this boat was one of our activities. The boat was chartered just for our group and was 90 minutes long. We left from the town of McGregor, a beautiful area and cruised the channels of the Mississippi River... More

We where kind of un-organized, what with european phone not working reliable in the states. We really wanted to do a boat trip on the Mississippi before leaving the area, so we where really happy that they took us on a trip even though no other customers where here on this day who wanted to take the regular trip at...

An awesome way to see the wonders of the Mississippi River! We have been on this same tour several times now and it never gets old. This year the captain got a new boat, and we were very excited to see it. We booked a private charter with Captain Vavra and went out yesterday. It was just a small group... More

Capt. Vavra is guiding a National Geographic film crew, on the Mississippi River, from Genoa WI to St. Louis Mo. An experience of a life time! dalej

Our trip was something I'd rather forget. There weren't many people aboard and the captain wasn't very friendly and we did not feel welcome. I don't know if it was just a bad day or he wasn't happy there weren't more people or what, but that is NOT how paying customers should be treated! I love the rest of the... More

Again, we traveled to McGregor to board the Maiden Voyage Tour boat in Mc Gregor, IA (2.5 hrs from Minneapolis, 3 hrs. from Milwaukee, 3.5 hrs. from Chicago). We have traveled the Great River Road along the Mississippi River many times, but there is no exact words I can put together to describe the UNSEEN world of the Mississippi River,... More

We traveled to La Crosse and Prairie du Chien WI this summer. We have done tours on the Mississippi River before, but this was the best. What is different was that is was present by Captain Vavra with history of the river and beautiful views. Open boat made us feel like we were there with the eagles and other nature.... More
