We had a very relaxing and enjoyable trip. The crew was knowledgable and were ready to answer the questions of my 2 grandchildren.

Our September 7th Sacramento River Cruise was pleasant and relaxing. The crew members were all very professional and attentive. The narrator's storytelling abilities took us back in time to the gold rush days, then back to present day with ease and accuracy. My 6 year old grandson was happiest of all. Thank you for making this a memorable day.
