I took my family on the tour, something I had wanted to do for a while and hadn’t had the chance. The narrated ride along the river is fantastic. Enjoyable and informative. I highly recommend.

If I remember correctly, I called ahead and purchased the tickets before I arrived. July is prime tourist season and the boat probably holds 100 people, so I would recommend buying the tickets before you arrive.
