A lovely trip on this gentle boat along the river Susquehanna . A bit if cool relief on a blistering hit day. Recorded history of the area was very interesting. Air conditioned on the lower deck. Fabulous views of the river and surrounding area.

It's about an hour ride up and down the Susquehanna River. The captain makes brief remarks, and then have a video and audio recording about the history of the town and the river. I enjoyed the trip.

Our experience on the Hiawatha was excellent. It was a throwback to years gone by, when things were simpler and time seemed to move at a comfortable pace. As you take a slow ride down the river, which is very clean and beautiful, you can...More
