Timing was just right, it poured before boarding the boatride and then cleared, it was a very informative boat ride about Katrina, the fires, the Mississippi River etc., very enjoyable way to spend 2 hrs. in the afternoon.

I booked the Dinner Jazz cruise because I was traveling with a senior citizen who has trouble walking. I figured it would allow him to hear some jazz and see the city from an interesting perspective without a great deal of walking. That it included dinner was an added bonus.The dinner cruise did all of that, but greatly exceeded my... More

Very fun to ride on a real steam powered paddlewheel boat. At $30 per person it is not cheep but the people were nice and helpful and the sights were great. My issue was that the person who was talking about what we were seeing was not very informed. He missed real points of interest along the way that even... More

I had a coupon from NOLA's marketing magazine but the ticket staff didnt honor it. She also said the manager was away so either i miss the sailing or pay full price. I am on a student budget and i was quite annoyed at the attitude. Also, she was more interested in her texting than working. I cant believe such... More

A visit to New Orleans would not be complete without a trip on the mighty Mississippi - and we chose to travel on the Natchez riverboat, as it purports to be the closest to the original kind of paddle steamer.Booking and boarding were straightforward enough and once under way the trip was pleasurable and informative, lasting just a fraction under...

My husband and I booked this tour after walking many miles in the city the day before. We wanted a relaxing, less hot way to sightsee and the Natchez lunchtime tour delivered in a big way. The price seemed really reasonable for the length and quality of the tour. Being able to see the paddle and steam engine in action... More

We had a blast on the cruise while the sun was setting, drinking champagne, listening to Jazz and taking in the view. The 7:45 sitting was a good choice so we could enjoy the sites while on the upper deck then it was dark by the time we went to dine. I asked for a window seat on checkin and... More

The Natchez lunch cruise was Great! The food was good, the scenery even better!! The Jazz band played during lunch and it was air conditioned!! If you live in the South, you know what I mean. 😄. It was so hot, but the cruise was very pleasant with the breezes when you were outside. It was so nice seeing the... More

We had booked to go on the Natchez steamboat dinner cruise before even flying to the U.S. This truly was one of the highlights of our trip. The cruise up and down the Mississippi River was brilliant, taking in an impressive sunset over the New Orleans skyline. The food and service was great too. Defimately worth doing.

Our visit to Riverbat Natchez this morning was wonderful. But my new BBFs Gina and JoJo in the dining room made our trip memorable and gave me ideas of other New Orlean sights.
