The paddle boat looks nice but the one hour ride from the dock is terrible. Nothing to look at except river street which was walked nightly and some cargo ships. Nothing to take a picture of that was worth it. They should go up to Ft Jackson but only said that the fort was ahead but could not see it... More

The Georgia Queen leaves from River Street in Savannah and was a good cruise with a very knowledgeable captain explaining what we could see. But had it not been for passing two docked huge ocean going ships and the captain explaining very well about big ships and how they come and load/unload and return to the ocean, there would have...

We went on the Georgia Queen for an afternoon and it was just ok. Most of the information on the ride was about shipping, trading, and modern commerce in and out of Savannah. My husband loved it, but our kids and I only enjoyed it for a while, then got bored; it just wasn't what we expected. It was also... More

a very informative and comfortable ride on the tour boat up and down the river. We were impressed with the tour and learned a lot about this fourth largest busiest port in the country. Container ships and cargo vessels line the waterway on the town side and South Carolina on the other side. Many interesting facts were brought to light... More

Boat is splendid however you pay extra to go on Saturday and get prime rib and crab cakes and much much more. Well they only had one buffet line open and by the time we got up to eat as they call tables in a certain order there were items no longer available. No bread no fruit there never were... More

My husband booked this dinner cruise on Friday, February 13th, for us to celebrate both Valentine's Day and our Anniversary while we were spending time in Savannah. The crew was very friendly and we had our souvenir picture taken upon boarding the River Queen. Our table was decorated for Valentine's Day with fresh flowers, balloons and a cute gumball machine...

We went on the Valentine's Day River Boat Cruise and it was the BEST time! The boat was decorated beautifully, the waitstaff/servers were very personable and friendly, (we had Brittany and she was the bomb!) the band was fabulous, and the food wonderful! This was the highlight of our trip so far and I very highly recommend a riverboat tour... More

My wife and I went on this afternoon cruise just to relax, and we had a great time. It was good to see some parts of Savannah that are hard to get to by other means, and the narration by the captain was first class. A lot of interesting facts were passed on in a smooth, entertaining, and well practiced... More

Had a great time on the dinner cruise last night. We had a party of 5 with a three year old and the staff made sure she had a great cruise too. Our server Brittany was great and very accommodating and the food was good. A big thanks to Scott Smiley and Captain Dave for the tour of the cockpit,... More

We very much enjoyed the harbour tour. Lots of interesting information, and seeing River street from the water is worth the price of the tour. I particularly enjoyed the balance of historic information and modern data on the port of Savannah. This is our third family visit to Savannah and my fourth, and I have to say it remains one...
