We were also very attentively looked after with drinks, snacks and blankets. Any time!

Very enjoyable trip. Crew was great, super friendly. Really went out of their way to help everyone take pictures, broke out some captains hats to help us pose. Explained all of the sites and the history. Sailed close to both sides of the river for great views of everything.
