This was a wonderful, pleasant tour. The historian had tons of interesting information and was pleasant and friendly. You were able to meander around the boat, eat, drink, go inside if it was too windy and yet maintain a perfect view of the river, sit inside in the back and watch the paddle wheel without getting splashed or view it from the upper deck outside. I enjoyed the stop off at the battlefield. This tour is a great tour if you are alone or with a group (any age). I highly recommend it.
