Hours of fun and enjoyment

My family of 6, including children ranging from 9-16 years, enjoyed this classic New Orleans experience. The musical background set the perfect atmosphere to enjoy watching the river roll on by. My history fans enjoyed the narration by Dr. Territino. We also enjoyed demonstration and history of the. Chalmette Battlefield. Makes for a great date or family outing. We would definitely suggest it to friends and family.

The trip was very good. Charles, our guide, did an exceptional job. His presentation at the battlefield was narrated in a manner which made it interesting and gripping. Also, when he spoke at length about hurricane Katrina, I found it very moving.

Beautiful cruise around the river which was loaded with historical information along the way. We chose an afternoon trip without food, which was an option offered. We would definitely recommend this cruise to everyone visiting New Orleans the first time.
