The trip was a wonderful experience and our caption was full of historical information mixed great humor and maybe a few wild tales. Our group of 6 really enjoyed the trip and we ended the day with a wonderful dinner at Williams Landing.

What a great trip. Very informative, relaxing and surprising. Never knew there was so much to see there just by crossing the bridge over the river.

if you buy your ticket on line be sure to print off the receipt and take it with you. I thought I had a reservation, didn't take confirmation with us and we were not on the list. Fortunately there was room.

Their online literature states that one of their pontoon boats has a wheel chair accessable head on board. Pontoon boats are easy on and off.
