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!!

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
