Took the Savannah Riverboat Tour with Captain John yesterday. Saw dolphins and many sights along the river. Great views from top deck. Loved learning all about the river. Fun way to spend an afternoon in Savannah.

We walked all over Downtown but the cruise lets you see the city from a whole other side. The tour takes you both up and down river, so you get to see both the industrial side as well as the historic side. Everything was narrated by the captain – he was warm, entertaining, and knowledgeable. It was a great way... More

We had a great time on the top deck with the excellent DJ. The atmosphere was great with food on the lower deck, cheese cake was yummy. Even though it rained for a while it didn't stop us all from dancing the night away, DJ was very good. Lower deck had music but was quieter and more subdued, we were... More

An overpriced, over sold tourist trap. The tour goes for 90 of the most boring minutes you will spend in an overwhelmingly beautiful city. While the boat is lovely to look at and the captain/narrator does his absolute best to make it interesting for the guests the river is just an industrial shipping port. When we went past the pile...

Everything was excellent from the time we boarded the ship until the time we got off. The food was excellent. It was the highlight of my trip. The server for our table was Colton Sorrels, his manager was Scott Smiley. Colton was such a gentleman. He went above and beyond pleasing the people at our table. He told us it... More

Our family had an amazing time at the New Years 2016 Eve Gala. We read some reviews and we were a bit worried about the Riverboat Tour. When we arrived we waited on the line and found people dressed in cocktail dresses, suits and even tuxedos. Staff was extremely friendly when we arrived and the tables and chairs were decorated...

Great way to see the city. If you sit on the top floor, it gets very hot...even in the winter. The boat boards 30 minutes early so get there when it boards so you get a spot on top!

The captain provided a very good and lively commentary, but the views are not exactly exceptional, too little of the town can be seen from the river beyond its waterfront. Good views of the port and docks.

The food was a buffet and was pretty good except the shrimp was overcooked and hard to peel. the only problem with a night dinner cruise is that you can't see anything on the river. Would have been much better during the day.
