I took my family on the dinner boat cruise for 50th birthday. I had great expectations for this as it was our first activity to start off our weekend in Savannah. The staff were great, everyone was very nice and the band was good as well. Now for the food....it was awful! Literally we barely ate anything and we ended... More

My husbapnd p& 0Pi went to Savannah for vacation. Unfortunately, we decided totake the riverboat cruise. It was the most boring " next to nothing" we did. The boat appeared old & the windows looked as if they had never been cleaned so we couldn't see out very well. The tour was mostly based on the cargo ships & didn't... More

Price not bad for the package around 40 per adult as and 25 per kids.They offer a guided tour through the river as well as a lunch buffet for and hour and a half. Food was good nothing amazing but still the experience was good.... More

We went on the dinner cruise to celebrate my father-in-law's graduation. We were a party of six - 3 couples. We were on the larger of the two boats on the second floor. We were seated on the far end at the back of the ship. There was a DJ of sorts on our floor as the entertainment. We couldn't... More

Fair disclosure: I will agree with the reviewer who found the port portion fascinating. I've basically spent my entire 25 year career in transportation. Having said that, this is almost you're only opportunity to really see Savannah from the river and to understand why this was (and still is) a critical port. It is a little pricey, but the trip...

This tour provided a pleasant Ride over the Savannah River. But It literally took you to the Bridge and Back. Offering Historic Stories over the intercom. I Honestly just enjoyed the views.

We really enjoyed our tour of the Savannah River on the riverboat. We took a sight-seeing cruise, and learned a lot about the history and importance of the Savannah River and the city of Savannah. We also got to see some huge barges and ships from a closer view. The narrator of our tour was very informative and interesting. We... More

We booked the 4th of July Fireworks cruise. It felt like we wasted our $72 (for 2) and would have been better off on shore. Since the boat was full, in order for all on the boat to see the fireworks, the boat did 360s during the fireworks. So, unless you moved as the boat moved, you were only able... More

Took the afternoon tour and enjoyed the trip up and down the river. Great views of the Savannah waterfront and Jackson Island fort in the distance. Captain Tom was a great storyteller.

I read some of the reviews that talked about the cruise being boring and I was almost scared off. I noted, however, that some of the cruise focused on the port and the industry of Savannah. I have been to Savannah many, many times and I have always found the port aspect fascinating but something to which I have not... More
