I have always had an interest in the rivers of North America. I enjoy boats and water. It was extremely comfortable cruising on the restored Queen of the West, stern wheeler up the Columbia and Snake Rivers of Oregon and Washington. Service was excellent.

One of my favorite times was having breakfast on the bow while viewing the majesty of the mountains and listening to our on board guide Todd Weber. Tears came to my eyes with the beauty I was seeing.

Todd gave a talk about the Lewis and Clark expeditions in this area. Hearing the history regarding the discovery and developing of this part of our country added to the full experience of the cruise. I truly like having guides on board to ask questions and expand the trip.
