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.

We took this cruise with the retired engineers club. It was a lot of fun! We saw eagles, blue herons, foxes, osprey, along the banks of the Mississippi. We were able to go through the locks, which was lucky since if there is a barge in the area they do not allow this. It takes 4-6 hours for a barge to travel through the locks, something that took us maybe 15 minutes. The buffet on the paddle boat was quite good - turkey, ham, potatoes, carrots, rolls, and carrot cake. There is a cash bar on board, also snacks you can purchase. We are talking about going again in the Fall, when the leaves are changing and birds are migrating.

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 took the Friday night Pizza cruise while in town for a week long cycle rally. Several others from our cycle rally were on this cruise and all enjoyed it. Fantastic views of the river. Several from the group have never been on a river cruise and were amazed. Free Pizza and beer along with cruise for $18.95 is hard to beat. Some questioned the cheap price, but soon found out it was good.

Thank you for choosing La Crosse for your Cycle Rally! We are happy that you selected the Pizza Cruise for a bit of relaxation on the Mississippi. We strive to provide a great experience at an affordable price since many people do not have the opportunity to experience Ol' Man River on a Paddlewheeler.

We appreciate your time in sharing thoughts and comments. We hope to serve you again in the near future.

We did the dinner river cruise, and we really enjoyed it. What we enjoyed was that it was a paddle steamer ( Without the steam but with the paddles). The cruise travelled the Mississippi at a leisurely pace on a calm early evening. The dinner was very simple, pizza, beer, and non-alcoholic drinks. The staff were wonderful.
