They really should tell you what you might see on this tour, if you are interested in seeing a working river with all it's tired, dilapidated buildings, the underside of a bridge and some ships being loaded and unloaded then this is the tour for you. If you live near a river or have seen all this before don't bother.... More

My husband and I did the tour of the Harbor and enjoyed the tour. Great way to relax, enjoy the view and learn about the activity from the ships around the harbor as well as a little about the history of the area.

We did the Gospel Dinner Cruise. There were positives. The crew was very service oriented. We asked for different seats and they were happy to oblige. The boat is very clean and well maintained. I thought the food was quite good. It was a buffet of standard Southern staples - fried chicken, collard greens, macaroni and cheese - to name... More

There is not much to see from this river except large freight ships. It is not worth the high price. Disappointing after Charleston.

We took the riverboat tour in the pouring rain, but even with the accompanying thunder and lightening it was well worth the money. Our tour captain was amusing and very well versed and made the Savannah shoreline industries very interesting.

I was looking for someplace to celebrate my 30th anniversary. I started looking at the Savannah Riverboat cruises. I read so many bad reviews that I almost changed my mind. We went on the lunch cruise and we loved it. Everything about it was good, the service, the food and the history information from the captain. I am so glad... More

We took the daytime sightseeing cruise. Very good commentary. Captain's mike stopped working for about 5 mins but was soon mended. You can't really come to Savannah and not do it. Very glad we did. Th river front is not necessarily scenic but it is interesting.

I stopped into this store along River Street to purchase a Savannah Teddy Bear for my little boy back home as a souvenir. It was only $13.95 which was the cheapest price for this bear on River Street. I saved a dollar or two here.

This was our first time in Savannah and our experience was a GREAT one. The staff was all really friendly and upbeat. The band, The Savannah Trio, was really great. The food was delish. Had our picture made when we first boarded and had the option to buy which made for a great souvenir. Wasn't too crowded. Over all it... More
