This tour provided a chance to get on the water, even though it was not an authentic paddle boat experience. Worth the cost.

I had planned out this trip to Memphis in advance, and one of the things that caught my eye was a riverboat tour down the Mississippi. I was excited because Memphis, the Mississippi, and riverboats conjured up such iconic mental images. I did look into...More
