Here are reviews from people who have taken our river adventures:
“The things that I learned and experienced on this program made me so much more aware of the great journey of Lewis and Clark and what a difficult and amazing trip they had!!!”
— Sally from Dunwoody, GA
“Loved the boat and the scenery. This part of the Mississippi is particularly beautiful, and the way to see it is from the deck of a leisurely boat. Some interesting towns along the way. Good instructors, very welcoming group.”
