Overall I was very pleased with the experience however there were few things I was not happy with: a) We paid for the brunch experience, don't do it food is very restricted and not very good..instead just do the river cruise experience without food. b) The ride is really not that long and all you get to see is the...

My Mom and I enjoyed this experience very much. Long line to board, but moved very quickly. We did the Noon sightseeing cruise. Snack bar offered, but only one guy (very pleasant) taking care of everyone, short line but moved very slow. It was interesting to see Riverstreet and other points of interest from a water view perspective.

Loved the Gospel Dinner Cruise. Only con was that it is on Monday nights only, but I guess they are very busy! The choir was amazing! Very uplifting experience! All you can eat buffet. Everything was top-notch! True essence of the South! I was a very happy camper. You could just tell everyone was enjoying themselves. Very entertaining.

We did a 4 o'clock harbor cruise. It was a wonderful way to see the waterfront from a different perspective. The captain was a very good tour guide. Would have liked it to be a little longer but the ships coming in and out of the harbor will dictate where you go. If you think the ships a big from... More

Whilst visiting the lovely city of Savannah, we decided to partake of the 'Moonlight Riverboat Tour'. We booked online easily and collected our tickets at the waterfront office. The waterfront was bustling with a live band and lots of food stalls as well as craft market stalls. The boat arrived on time and we all boarded and set off. We... More

This was an average dinner cruise. The food was average, the trip down the river was nice. The ship was clean, but alcohol was not included and the drink prices were not included on the drink menu. Beware the drinks were expensive and large.

like everyone said, you can't go very far in an hour, but we really enjoyed being on the water to get a different perspective on Savannah, and have to give a special shout out to Captain John for his narration--learned more about ships and ports in an hour than I imagined!!

Apparently many take this trip hoping to see the type of plantations that are part of the old Mississippi. On our one hour cruise, there were no plantations to be seen. But we got great views of a busy, modern port. (Savannah is apparently the fourth largest port in the US). The river was extremely busy with commercial traffic during... More

We went on this tour for a special mothers day event. Our table was right next to a window although I did have to pay more for that. The service was great and might all my needs. The dinner was good and provided a lot of variety. The views where great and we got to see a couple dolphins. The... More
