We have been on a few U.S. river rides before, and this is similar in form. There is a narration that is recorded for part of the trip down the Hudson river and also the captain fills in certain details at points that are especially noteworthy to those who are interested in the history of why and how West Point Military school is where it is right along the shores of the Hudson river. The history is also about how the Hudson river was a key waterway during the Revolutionary War with George Washington living in the area at the time. The scenery is beautiful with mountains rising over the area. There is a snack bar/ drink bar on site for those wanting a little something while on the trip. We sat in the air conditioning on the lower floor for a while (very nice at tables set up against the windows), but went on the upper deck and enjoyed the ride in the beautiful weather we were having for most of the trip.
