A beautiful boat, The descriptions were very good about what we saw on the trip. Everything was great.
Our captain and guide were awesome. Found out a lot about Toledo. Very informative. Relaxing , friendly, accommodating trip. All six of us would highly recommend it.
From the accessibility for seniors and those with physical challenges to the cleanliness of the vessel to the knowledge of the speaker. It was our first time and will not be our last! The crew was amazing, assisting wherever needed! The best ever!!!
Had great time on the river cruise. The staff did an excellent job and the trip was well worth the price of the ticket.
The crew was great, and the boat was very comfortable and conducive to seeing sights along the Maumee. The Captain (Paul?) was extremely knowledgeable about the river, Lake Erie, and the ecology of the watershed. The narration given on the trip was excellent. I will highly recommend this tour to my friends and relatives. Jim W., St. Clair Shores, Michigan

i thoroughly enjoyed this educational tour. I was very satisfied that for 2 hours there was not a dull moment. The knowledge that I received from the tour guide was priceless; i love learning new things about the city I live in. Thank you for making it a wonderful saturday morning.
Very informative and knowledgeable staff.
Our cruise was on a beautiful day. The online reservation and payment process was easy. The host and captain made for a most enjoyable trip. Our eleven year old grandson was kept entertained for two hours, which was very much appreciated. An overall great experience.
Great relaxing afternoon. I have an elderly grandfather and this was the best way for him to see Toledo without doing more than he can.
I had an amazing time with my children.
Not very interesting kinda boring needs to be more history of the river facts not just a boat cruise 2 c the rich peoples houses from the river
because of Jodie and the captain,fun people ,nice people
Enjoyed the trip down the river and the commentary. Quite enjoyable and will recommend to friends.
We have been on the Sandpiper before and our guide was so much more informative this time. Learned a lot that we never knew before. The captain had a really rough time docking because of the weather conditions but did an excellent job and we were very confident that he knew what he was doing. Would go again.
The crew was friendly and the experience met expectations.
We enjoyed learning about the river. We would have liked a little more history of the area, but the tour overall was very nice.
This was such an awesome experience. Relaxing, fun and our guide was knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this as a family excursion. I will definitely be back.
