We enjoyed the river boat ride and the guide was excellent at describing all the facts about the river, the birds, animals, tupelo trees, etc. It was a comfortable boat with nice viewing on both sides. Only thing is the take off location is kind of out of the way for us, but that didn't matter much. We had fun, enjoyed the scenery, learned a lot, and it gave us an opportunity to see the river. I like nature so it was fun. It was a casual atmosphere.
