If you take this tour and want to visit Boldt Castle, you want to know that the tour stops at the castle at the end of the trip and you may want to allow several hours on Heart Island. The young girl who was our guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Highly recommended!

This boat tour was excellent! We had perfect weather for it, which made it even better. We were advised to get a seat on the upper deck, which I did, and would definitely recommend as well. The tour guide was very informative yet not too much so. We stopped at Boldt Castle, which was fantastic. We took the 2 hour... More

We took the 2 hour two nation tour and it was great. Breathtaking views with excellent narrative. Dan did a superb job even though his jokes were corny. Be careful about international roaming charges on your smart phone. Hundreds of opportunities for great pictures. Purchase the photo book offered on ship. It is very good.

During our recent trip to Alexandria Bay we went on 2 Nation tour on St. Lawrence River with Uncle Sam Boat Tours. Everyone was so nice and extremely helpful and accommodating, as my husband uses a mobility scooter. On and off ship was easy. Tour guide was entertaining and informative.

If you have just a few hours, take the Millionaire's row tour. You will get to see most of what is offered on the other tours. If you have the whole day, Take the Singer Castle tour in the morning and Two Nations in the afternoon. Be aware that this is very tiring and Boldt Castle takes a lot of... More

This was our fourth trip to Alexandria Bay and our fourth trip on Uncle Sam's boat tours. The 2 Nation Tour is great, and I am sure the Millionaire's Row tour is good too. The free parking is a big plus, as finding parking in Alexandria Bay is a challenge in it self on a busy weekend. I am sure... More

I really enjoyed this tour. It's an easy, relaxed, and fun way to see the thousand islands. I recommend the two nation tour, which includes a stop at Bolt castle. Dan, our tour guide provided both humor and lots if good info about the multi-million dollar homes we saw, and other sights along the way.

We did not do a boat tour. We just took a ride out to Boldt Castle and back but we had a pleasant experience. There was no wait and the service was fast both there and back. Would love to do an actual tour the next time we are back in the area.
