"Greetings, my family and I were thrilled with our experiences with Mississippi Explorer Cruises on July 5th with the tour to Sny Magill Mounds. I cannot say enough how much fun we had. We were the ones with the noisy young kids who camped out in the front of the boat. And you, Captain Jack, were a great source of info on the river, its wildlife and the life working on the river. Thank you so much for the trip!"
