A must-to-do when you're in Branson if you enjoy riverboat rides. Cpt. Gus is a very funny guy and talkative. The river scene was great. Will do it again when in Branson.More

Nice evening with dinner and a beautiful lake boat ride. Food was good and the ride was relaxing. A little info while going down Lake Tanneycomo about the area, and what we are seeing would be nice for our out of town guests.
