We did the afternoon boat ride with free pizza, soda and beer. We enjoyed the ride and the staff were all very friendly. We would like to do the evening boat ride in the near future.

My family went during the week. The tour was very relaxing along the river. We saw some eagles along the way. The prices for the tour was reasonable and the tour guide was great. Will look forward to going back for another tour.

We had dinner on the LaCrosse Queen as we traveled down the Mississippi River. The food was good, there was live music and the views were amazing. The cost was $100 for two and the tour was about 3 hours.
