The cruise was smooth and the narration was good, but difficult to hear in all parts of the ship. Perhaps you need more speakers.

Sad to say, we did not get to have the cruise. There was other events that were going on in Old Sac, the Rivercats were playing and evidently other things. There was no parking available within a walkable distance, so we lost our chance to use...continued

I really enjoyed this outing. The weather was perfect! We boarded and went straight to the snack bar. Decent selections of offerings; hot dogs, chips, nuts, beer, wine, sodas, coffee, hot chocolate. We took a spot on the second level front...continued

If the temperature hadn't have been over 100 degrees, it would have been perfect! But my family and I did t enjoy the short trip - it was worth $10 - not much more as it was too short and too hot.

Disappointing. Boat did not have air conditioning and sound quality for tour was poor. River was nice and had some interesting views. Staff was friendly.

It was very informative although it was a little hard to hear sometimes. I will go again.

Very boring, nothing really to see. Save your money. This should be a free cruise. Waste of precious time.

Very relaxing and enjoyable.....unfortunately for me, where I was sitting (upstairs/outside near captain) there was so much chatting by a couple of people that I couldn't hear all of the historical narration over the speakers. In spite if that, I...continued

Fun short cruise on the river. Being a resident of Sacramento most of my life I thought it'd be fun to be tourists for the day. Actually learned some stuff about the river and Old Sac that I didn't know. Had I not gotten comp tickets I think I...continued

The cruise was fun. The narator had a lot of info I was not aware of, even though we have lived in the area many years.

This was such a wonderful cruise. We enjoyed every minute of it. We would reccommend this tour for everyone. We went out to dinner afterwards and walked through Old Town. It was a great day.

I recommend it to others if only to learn the significance of the Sacramento River in the formation of Sacramento and the state capital.

This was a great way to experience the river in Sacramento, see the city from the river, and get a brief history of things on the river. It was a comfortable ride both inside the lower or upper floors at tables and chairs or standing outside.

Reasonably priced cocktails and hot dogs plus informative history of Sacramento along the river... And you get to see Sacramento from a different perspective. Certainly could not complain about the low cruise price through Goldstar.
