I enjoyed this a lot! Wish I was with more people to enjoy it with me. The ride is informative , just enough info and not too much, they know that you don't want to spend the entire time listening to someone talk . Tour is over an hour, at the end of the tour, they turn the entire off... More

The staff was helpful and friendly. The tour was educational and fun. Wish we had to make a few stops to check out islands.

This was a very interesting experience. Let's you a town from an entirely point of view. The tour takes you around Vicksburg from the waterfront and going northward on a part of the river that was man made trying to divert the river in a different direction all the way up to the Harbor project and you see businesses that...

This tour is one and a half hours long on a steam paddle cruiser and is well worth a look as the guide gives you a history tour of the mississippi and the cotton industry and how it is used today which we found very interesting with a lot of history we did not know.

My school has done field trips with MS River Tours since 2006. We have never had problems with the tour. The tour guide captains are always fun and helpful. The guide is informative and keeps my students engaged on the trip. This is a tour we take twice a year as part of our curriculum. We love MS River Tours!!

I gave her my number and she called the next day to let me know that it would not but she would let me know tomorrow. She called early the next day to... More

About one week before our trip, we called and made reservations for a 1 1/4-hour Mississippi river tour on the small tour boat called "Sweet Olive". They stated that they would be making one trip that day at 1:30 pm. We planned that as our first activity upon arriving in Vicksburg. We found the site where the boat departs and... More
