Great tour! The personnel was professional; the tour guide had good knowledge about the history of the Troy, Albany cities and area. Going through the lock was awesome! Seeing the bridges open for us was spectacular! The 2 and a half hours went by fast.

The tour upstream showcased beautiful riverfront homes, the once-busy industrial port, and the river fowl -- bald eagles and herons. The accommodations were comfortable and the cool breeze on a very hot afternoon was much appreciated. I had expected to learn more about the history...More
