I loved every minute of the trip we took. The staff was very professional and friendly. The captain was also very knowledgeable when it came time for his narration. Sitting out on the front of the boat was just so relaxing. A perfect way to spend our last night on our honeymoon.Michelle Ann Schuetrump
My husband and I took the sightseeing cruise this past weekend for our 28th anniversary. The views and historical narration were fantastic! Great crew!Robin Ritchie Seropian
Went on my first CFR dinner cruise after being here 17 years. Captain Carl is the most experienced Captain on the river, and the experience is the perfect mix of party and private. The views are great, and the cruise what just long enough. Good value and you’re in good hands on an interesting river.Pious Choi
