Relaxing, informative and fun 🤩

First impression is a lasting impression. Captain Dane and Liz are the best hosts. They made us feel welcomed into their world. They shared not only the history but also a bit of the geographical culture. That made the cruise interesting. Then there was time for us to just chill, relax and take it all in. I appreciated that the boat was beautiful, clean and in good condition. No shabby looking boat. The cruise was EPIC! Would definitely do it again. If you’re going to Waco, you’ll enjoy adding this cruise to your journey. I’ve used Viator for a few tours and they are reliable, professional and has the best deals for your money.
