Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the tour?

The perfect length! Your sightseeing adventure lasts about 45 minutes with about 25 minutes of that time on the water. We pass by many of the area's important landmarks and significant buildings to give you an overview of the region. We leave you plenty of time to go back to the sites where you really want to spend more time.

*Tour routes are subject to change without notice based on events happening in or around Newport, Cincinnati, and the Ohio River.
