The dining room was beautiful and comfortable. The historical narrative included some interesting side stories that we would not find in the books! The bar staff was as informed as the narrator, and served the best drinks with a smile and a story!
There was tug that passed us pushing 6 different barges. We were amazed how swift the river current was flowing. The Battle of 1812 battlegrounds were so very interesting. The plantation house was especially beautiful!
Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?
Yes! This was such a fun way to see the river and interact with local history. The beauty of the river banks and the constant movement of commercial river vehicles kept us engaged the whole trip.
