The $20 fee for a 90 minute ride up and down the Mississippi is a fair price for the activity. Make sure you are able to hear the commentary, because that's all there really is to this. There are no real "sights" to behold other than Memphis and the bridges you pass under. Good weather makes it more enjoyable. We were fine when the sun was on us as we headed west in the afternoon, but when the boat turned around and headed east, we were all quite cold in the shade! Drinks and snacks surprising not too expensive on board. So grab a good seat and listen to some of the information about the river and area.

We expected just a nice little boat ride on the Mississippi River. Instead we got a delightful, informative and humorous 2 hour history lesson that was a treat and made the trip even more worthwhile. The tour guide was quite an interesting and interested personality with a vast knowledge of the history of life along the Mississippi River at that point. I could have listened to him for a couple more hours!

Its just tradition that when my wife and I are on vacation, where there's water, we need to be on it. River boat cruise filler the void and was worth it. I booked it on my phone but didn't have a printer so the lady was very helpful and just did it at the counter. The boat holds about 100 people with three decks. We sat on the top deck for the view.They serve wine/well/soda and have popcorn/hot dogs and chips. Some interesting narrative about the river and Memphis are given throughout.It lasts about 2 hours or so. There is parking available but you need to get it validated.Otherwise you'll pay dearly

We enjoyed this tour, it was just the right amount of time. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. Good concession stand on board. It was a relaxing way to spend an afternoon in Memphis.

While the sights along the river are not spectacular the narration is VERY interesting and the knowledge of the guide is outstanding.
