This was a great trip from start to finish. The look on my grandsons face when we plunged into the water was priceless! Our captain told story after story of the sights along the river. So much interesting information I would have never known had it not been for him. He let the kids steer the boat and the smiles were priceless! They all felt so proud! I used a Groupon deal so the price for me was great, but it would have been worth the entire price without it. The only problem with that though was that that would have put us out of our comfortable price range in total cost and then we may have missed the very best part of Chattanooga! I wish there was a way to secure a reservation for out if town people before the day if event though. Although you can call that morning, we didn't get an answer, so it necessitated us driving there to see if there was even an available spot for us to use our Groupon. Luckily there was, but I can see this might prove to be a problem for out of towers with tickets they might not be able to use. PS the duck quacking necklaces are adorable!
