I really enjoyed this 1 hour river cruise up the Sacramanto River and back. While I wouldn't describe it as 'historic' I would definitely say it is informative. The boat goes at the right speed to get a fair way upriver, but still making it possible to snap some photos. There is a bar onboard offering various refreshments and snacks.

It was nice to be out on the river. The captain was entertaining, while providing some interesting facts about the area. You don’t go very far, but it’s only an hour trip. The boat was clean and they served drinks.

Bought online tix- easy process. Entertaining short cruise on paddle boat. Captain and First Mate sense of humor on point. Cool music in the background and a full bar! A fun time.

It was OK - the tour was good but there is not too much to see on that river

I was expecting more history. The narration could have been more embellished
