A good time!

It was a good time! The dam was cool to see from other angles. Sunset was beautiful, and food was solid.
Streenwheeler Dinner Cruise

Looking at all the beautiful scenery. Enjoying the great food. Experiencing a new adventure with my husband. Really enjoyed learning about the Streenwheeler and the captains narrative on all the great things about the Gorge/Columbia River.

Hello Adam, I am very sorry to hear the service was slow. We are aware of the issue that occurred and we are doing our best to make sure it does not happen again. We have many new staff members and we will continue to train them and make sure that our service standards are met on a daily basis.
Call ahead to see if the AC works
, Jul 2021
It was two hours of sweating. The tables are in an inclosed room without any AC. They open the doors and set up fans in the rooms, but then the other families would turn the fans to face only their table. The lady that takes pictures has zero interest in her job and it shows. The narrator sounds like a monotone history teacher. But the wait staff was very nice and the food wasn’t bad. The views were great. Just need to get the AC fixed and make the narration more interesting, also maybe hire a photographer who enjoys their job.

Hello Megan, I am sorry to hear about your negative experience onboard. We strive to offer an amazing experience but sometimes we fall short. I have sent this review to all parties involved to make sure this does not happen again. Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback, we take all negative reviews very seriously.
Bit overpriced
, Jun 2021
Make sure you call on advance to confirm your booking! Good for couples and family outings, nice ambience. Friendly staff. I think it's a bit overpriced, it should be $55 at most. The food is typical of what you would get on a train or plane if you order the nice food. I couldn't hear what the tour guide was saying, he was quiet most of the time. They didn't have my reservation either when we arrived, they had no evidence that I booked through Viator. We were lucky another couple didn't show up so we got their spot, but what would have happened if there was no room? They said this happens frequently with 3rd party reservations, so make sure you call to confirm!!

I am very sorry to hear about this negative experience. I have talked with all parties involved. Your booking was missed because you canceled and then rebooked, our reservations thought it was a duplicate. We have discussed ways to make sure this does not happen again.

Early Father’s Day Adventure
, Jun 2021
It was a beautiful evening ride on the spectacular Columbia River. It wasn’t always easy to clearly hear what the Captain was saying about the various sites. The meal was adequate. We were disappointed that the souvenir shop and restrooms were closed when we returned at the end of the cruise. But all in all it was a fun adventure for the price.

So relaxing.

So relaxing. Beautiful sights to see. Learned more about this side of Oregon. The food would have been better but the Captain’s narration and the waiter’s hospitality is the best. A must do!!!

Dinner Cruise

Wonderful experience with the dinner cruise on the Columbia. If you are in the vicinity , then this is a must do event. Even if you are NOT in the's worth the drive. We came from 300 miles south and this was worth every mile.
