Afternoon Mississippi River ride

Charles was an excellent story teller, on our historical river cruise! The food was “okay”. The construction around the area made it difficult to find the way to the boat.

Charles was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and gave us a detailed description of what happened to New Orleans during and after Katrina hit. An excellent historian. The paddle boat was awesome and very comfortable. I would recommend this activity to everyone who enjoys boat riding and learning a bit of history of the are of New Orleans. Please beware that parking along the water front is very expensive, so check out the city too, if you have the time to do so! .

The boat was nice and it was a nice ride, but the commentation, although informative, was practically constant both going and on return. I would have enjoyed the ride a bit better with just some "silent cruising"!

The narrator Charles was great. I loved how he broke down the history of the navy ships & the sugar.
