Entertaining and enlightening!
This was one of the best historical tours I have ever been on and it was all due to Charles, historian and performer extraordinaire. He gave a spirited and light-hearted narration of the local sites as we steamed down the river to the battle site. Then, at the site of the Battle of New Orleans, we were treated to an incredibly detailed and fascinating account of how the battle unfolded. Finally, on the way back, he dove into a riveting and moving tale of the Katrina disaster. A top-notch performance in a great venue. Highly recommended!

Laugh and Learn
Aug 2021 • Couples
Charles, the narrator, was both funny and informative. I recommend the Historical Cruise for those who wish to learn, laugh and have a few cocktails aboard this one of a kind ship. Make sure Charles will be narrating during your trip.

Riverboat tour narrated by Charlie Chestnut
The historic riverboat tour was excellent thanks in large part to the cleverly narrated history delivered live by Charlie Chestnut. Cool riverboat. Interesting river and sights including the domino sugar factory and Jean Lafitte park and monument. But superior delivery of tour narration by Charlie !

JAZZ Lunch CRUISE
Aug 2021 • Couples
The History and the food were my husband and my favorites. Social distancing and cleaning throughout the cruise which made us feel extremely safe. We only had about 40 when we cruised and in the kings room everything was nicely spaced out. The food was freshly cooked and served. The corn dish. Shrimp and bread pudding were my favorites. My husband loved the Jambalaya and Red Beans and Rice.

River Cruise Day Getaway
Aug 2021 • Solo
Nice little river boat experience. The food was pretty good that was offered. More selections on mixed drinks mixers would be a great idea. The prices of the drinks seemed to be on par as the bars, but I would suggest the cups to be a little bigger. The team members were all very nice.

Another last minute cancellation
After a last minute cancellation the day before on the “other boat” we booked on this one for the next night. We arrived at 6pm and then heard a whisper that the boat wouldn’t cruise but dinner would still be served. After asking an employee who didn’t know, the ticket office confirmed that it would not leave the dock. We obtained a refund but it didn’t appear that the company was going to inform the passengers.

Hello! I am sorry to hear about your negative experience. I do think you may have us mixed up with another cruise company, as all of our cruises have sailed within the last few months.

This was really pretty good. Narration was amazing! Kudos to the narrator!
Paddleboat was clean and well run. Narration made this journey worthwhile. I'm not a huge fan of history nor battles. Narrator was very good. Engaging, easy to listen too, and easily heard throughout the ship. He ended up doing the battlefield portion of the tour too since the park ranger didn't show on time. He was amazing. There's really not a lot to see from the boat on the ride there or back. But what there was the narrator pointed out with lots of interesting tidbits. Worth doing while here!

Nice photo ops
Jul 2021
We chose to experience the cruise without the meal. There were mimosas by the glass or unlimited (whatever you purchased).

There was a stop at a battlefield - grass lawn. It was a nice break from all this walking but it was difficult to hear the guide on the boat as due to the weather, we chose to sit inside.

Nice, but basic tour of the River and some good photo ops.
