"I would give the River City Queen a 10 review if I could!!! Captain Jim and his staff were beyond great. Extremely accommodating, friendly, professional and just all around GREAT!! My wife had the best time celebrating her 50th birthday and Captain Jim and his staff were a huge part of it. Definitely the boat to get for a surprise party or any other type of party."

"50 people on the River City Queen to celebrate my birthday last week. What fun!!! We cruised up river and even made an excursion into the American River. The weather was completely perfect, the lighting gorgeous (it was the golden hour and sunset), food delicious, great mai tais and friendly staff! We even saw a sea lion lounging on someone's pier. My friends took some spectacular photos that I'm going to get them to share here."

"The perfect setting for my 80th birthday party. Family and friends dined at a delicious buffet and enjoyed their favorite beverages. The music, provided by Tony Shaw of Cornerstone Productions, was geared for the occasion, encouraging a raucous karaoke session. My birthday cake was fabulous. The hosts, Captain Jim and his mate, Kris made sure everything was perfect for the occasion. A memorable excursion on the Sacramento River. It was a party I will never forget."
