“Relaxing meal”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

We had a nice trip up what looked like a river, but was called "Lake Tannycomo". Found out the meal was catered by Famous Daves, and it was just fine, like that food always is. The facilities were great, service was excellent. There were a lot of unusual (and expensive!) homes, some glimpsed through the trees, some easier to see. Quite a bit of wildlife too. Basically, it was a relaxing couple of hours with a nice meal. An old gangster's hideaway was the turnaround point.

This is expensive and not very exciting at all. You ride down the lake and pretty much see trees, a few houses and get very little history narration. It's rather boring for what you pay for. We did ride on the paddle wheeler. There were bathroom facilities and refreshments you can buy. But for the money, very disappointing. The only high point was in returning the fountains at the Branson Landing gave quite a show. But you can see that from the landing.

“Nice Cruise”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We did not do the dinner, only the cruise. It was so peaceful on the water. You cruise along see alot of wildlife, and beautiful homes along the river. You can buy drinks, beer, pop, etc.. Lots of sights for picture taking. This is one of those things, that for us, we did it, enjoyed it, but most likely won't do it again.
Did enjoy the whole downtown area.

“Great time”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

My wife and I booked a dinner cruise on the Main Street Landing Princess and although we never expected a great dinner we were pleasantly surprised to find them serving an excellent meal. The cruise up Lake Taneycomo was very relaxing and the pace of the meal was wonderful. The cruise took about two hours as we enjoyed a salad, dinner & dessert, not to mention the cruise for around $80.00.
All in all it was one of the highlights of our 2 day stay in Branson and I highly recommend this outing. The crew was very hospitable and extremely pleasant.

“Great Value”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

My husband and I were in Branson for the week. The weather was so great we decided to do the dinner cruise. So glad we did. The food was very good and the ride on the river was perfect. Capt. Buba found out it was my birthday and let me drive the yacht.What a thrill!!!!! You could see any place on the yacht for wonderful views of birds. Just a very relaxing evening. We meet some very nice people while taking pictures from the deck. Ever in Branson do the cruise and see the shops at Branson Landing. Many nice places to eat if spending the day.
