  • Staff were all very friendly and helpful. The narrator was very knowledable and explained pretty much everything we saw along the way. The brunch was OUTSTANDING and much more than I expected. I will do this again if ever I get back to the area.

  • Very relaxing trip.

  • fun and informative experience!

  • Sunday brunch whilst enjoying live jazz music meandering down the Mississippi river - this is what you imagine when planning a trip to NOLA and the Natchez did not disappoint. We were so glad to have selected the brunch option for this tour and this allowed us to sit back in comfort within the dining area with a table reserved for the entire cruise - allowing the ability to roam the ship and take in the steam room before retiring for a cocktail or two and listening to the wonderful music. The experience was everything we envisaged and more and was a great way to start the week.

  • Had such an amazing time. Buffet stayed fully stocked with hot food and friendly servers, the band was also a nice touch

  • Did the lunchtime brunch cruise. Food was amazing, staff where attentive, the cruise was worth every dollar

  • Really well worth the money. The sights were great, the food was tasty and 'Duke Heitger's Steamboat Stompers' were special. Thoroughly recommended.

  • Really nice activity. Did the Sunday afternoon brunch cruise. It was very crowded but once on the boat you didn't feel that it was that full. Lots of room for everybody to spread out. The brunch was excellent and the service was just as good. Will come back and do it again next trip to NO. Thanks!

  • We had a great Waiter that was from our home town Rob! The food and Entertainment were good. We got caught in a Thunderstorm during our trip. It was fine. Would do it again.

  • This was a great little hidden gem in NOLA!!! The drinks were great and the experience even better!!! I will be back!!!
