Friendly staff. OK value for money. Was not the advertised one hour long cruise. Some of the other tourists were very noisy and their children ran all around the deck screaming for pretty much the length of the cruise.

We had a really enjoyable trip on the Pride of the Murray Paddle Steamer. A knowledgeable captain, and a happy helpful deck hand. Would do this again.

It was a beautiful day and the cruise was just lovely. Winery location was excellent - make sure you sit outside facing the river which you can just see thru the trees. Very idyllic location with lots of birds and the occasional kangaroo to entertain us while having lunch. Food was ok, - nothing outstanding but we are very very harsh critics when it comes to food! Limited menu due to package deal and I'm sure they had more and better choices available for normal diners. Very sad when the paddle steamer arrived back at the port. We had a very relaxing and extremely enjoyable day.

Went on the one hour trip up the Murray and had a great experience. Both crew (male and female) were friendly and welcoming. The woman was the skipper and also gave the commentary which was informative and engaging with some interesting facts and humour thrown in which is always a good thing. It was amazing to see how high the Murray can rise and how often it does! We learnt about the history of the river and the port. At $30 each it was a very enjoyable way to spend an hour on the river in Echuca.
