We actually debated about whether to take the cruise and I am glad that my family talked me into this adventure. The food was good but the band was spectacular. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Great way to spend a couple hours. After walking all day, it was nice to sit down with a cocktail and enjoy a nice view of the city and a great breeze.

Okay, let me start this with the fact that through TripAdvisor and Viator you can purchase a VIP pass for the Natchez Steam boat tour. Since my husband and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary, we decided to do so. WORTH EVERY PENNY! You go to check in and get your ticket, and then stand in line with everybody... More

This is our second ride on the Natchez Steamboat, but as exciting as ever. It's a 2-hour cruise and you can eat if you want (we just cruised). Those old steam engines are fascinating, the Dixieland band plays while you are rolling on the river. It was worth going back again!

This was our 8th anniversary celebration and we wanted to do something special. We chose right in taking the Steamboat Natchez dinner cruise. Great buffet food, Dixieland music, and a lovely trip down the Mississippi. They take good care of you on the boat.

AS we never have been to New Orleans,we decided to take a bus tour to get an over view of the city. We chose Gray Line & the "Isle of Orleans" tour. Our drivers name was Ken. He gave very very good dialogue of New Orleans of the places we were seeing & what to see after the tour including... More

We are so pleased that we made both experiences such good ones for you and your party. Kindrell is a delight providing tours on Gray Line, a sister company. And we appreciate that you took his advice and joined us on the NATCHEZ as well. Thank you for coming to our city. More

Went on the steamboat having pre-booked this before leaving UK and this was for a VIP sail and we certainly were treated like VIPs ;.escorted on to boat and taken to our table which had been reserved. We had a host who looked after us all night ensuring that we had a good time, food was delicious and at the... More

We went on the lunchtime two hour cruise only (we did not purchase lunch) and found the cruise to be excellent and the tour guide to be very informative. The steamboat has plenty of viewing areas along with the main dining area, bars, gift shops, snack shop and you can even check out the steam engines on the lower deck.... More

We took the dinner cruise and the food was good. What the food lacked the cruise down the river made up for. Sit on the side overlooking the dock. When going down the river most of the attractions which are talked about are on that side. The music was equally great. The only issue we had was that people were... More

Took this tour with my husband and adult daughter. Thought it was a bit pricey but once the tour began and the jazz band started we all agreed it was money well spent. Did not opt for the lunch. We were lucky to have three seats in the very front of the boat on the second level. Also fortunate to... More

The Natchez is a great family attraction in New Orleans and it sounds like you and your family enjoyed it. Even in the heat of the summer in our city, you can catch a breeze on the river and enjoy some less-than-hectic time together. Hope you had a chance to see the engine room too! More
