OMG, it was the best touristic attraction ever. I enjoyed everything there, and it was beyond my expectation. Warm and professional staff, great entertainment with the best DJ ever. Very good and affordable cocktails at the bar and the captain was kind. On top of that, good vibrations, good people, good music, nice river views, and clean cruise. I would give them 10 stars if I could. Thank you for making my visit to Sacramento unforgettable.

Enjoyed the cruise - Weather was not good...rainy etc. but still the cruise was great - would definitely go again. The Captain and narrator were the best!

One of our group was not able to attend and I am still slogging through the mire back and forth between Guide and Hornblower for a credit or refund.

Staff was welcoming and the tour was great and fun. The captain was funny and the history facts were our favorite

This is a very nice way to learn about some of Sacramento's history
