We were going to be passing through Harrisburg in our family vacation so I bought a groupon deal for this riverboat tour. It was a very enjoyable 45 min excursion with some interesting history of the boat and river narrated during the tour. The upper deck was nice for views and the interior lower deck was well air conditioned and... More

My husband and I took our two teenage boys for a 45 min ride. The weather was perfect, staff was friendly, there was a narration during the tour over the loudspeakers and music, refreshments below deck, watching the paddle was really cool!

We went on the public 45 minute tour today. We called the night before and were told the number of tickets sold at that time for the following day. It gave us an idea of whether we should purchase the tickets in advance or wait until we arrived. The person on the phone was very helpful and personable. She said... More

It is always a goal to do those things that were once common in America but are now considered unique and unusual. The Pride is a perfect example. It's a bargain and although it is a short ride there is still plenty of time to enjoy Harrisburg's skyline as well as the many bridges leading into the city. We enjoyed... More

Bought a Groupon for the 45 minute sightseeing tour. Looked on the website and was able to buy our tickets ahead of time. I picked the date and time, received a confirmation email. Email told me to print out my tickets, saying, and I quote, "This will serve as your boarding pass". Got to the gate 10 minutes prior to... More

Very nice boat ride! Forgot my sunscreen and the staff on board provided it for me. They were super friendly and accommodating. I thought the trip was a fair amount if time. Only disappointing thing was the ticket person at the booth on shore. She was very rude.

The cruise was pleasant and scenic. The narrative was very informative. The crew was polite and pleasant. More on deck seating would be nice. The snack bar area was very nice. .

This was a boring tour. What made it OK was the Groupon pricing. I wouldn't have paid regular price. I have an almost 15 year old and a 7 year old, they were wishing for time to fly.

We totally enjoyed the time we spent on the River. When it is warm, a nice place under the canopy gives good seating, shade, view and within hearing shot of the tour guide. Get there early to get This spot. You are allowed to board at 15 minutes before casting off. The line starts about 20 minutes before you are... More

Not a long ride but a nice way to go under all the bridges and see both shorelines all the way to the 83 bridge. Seating can be out on the upper deck or down in a dining room like setting. For $10 it can't be beat.
