My friend and I thought a luncheon cruise over to the many islands and Boldt Castle would be really nice and comfortable for the 2-1/4 hours but most people on the boat hadn't ordered lunch. We were relegated to an uncomfortable plastic table with sandwiches from Riley's that were not very good. We paid $34 for the luncheon cruise when... More

After researching the many ways of touring the 1000 Islands we chose the Uncle Sam Boat Tours. We decided to do the combination ticket, which gives you a discount when taking two of the tours. Each tour can be taken on separate days which really made it easier on us. I think one tour a day is plenty, there is... More

We really enjoyed our 1 1/2 hour boat tour of the Millionaires portion of the 1000 Islands. We had an excellent guide who is a professor during the school year. He was full of history and trivia. The boat was nice and left right on time. This is a good tour for all ages.

Uncle Sam's Boat Tours is a great way to see the St. Lawrence. The castles are wonderful if you like history and architecture.

This tour is one of the best ways to learn and explore the beautiful 1000 Islands between New York and Canada! My friends and i took the 21/2 hr tour which was absolutely perfect .to really capture the magnificence and unsurpassed beauty of the 1000 Islands on the gorgeous St Lawrence River. A must do adventure tour!

-This was a wonderful experience with my 16 year old grandson from North Carolina. Coming from New York we take the 1000 Inslands for granted but he was amazed by the tour and the information he learned. Most of his family orginated in New York and he has an interest in fishing the Great Lakes.The information was fun and the... More

The best way to see the inhabited fraction of these 1800+ islands is from the American side. Access to the Boldt castle is easier as well. That pretty much means a stop at Alexandria Bay and Uncle Sam boat tours. We took a shuttle to the castle and then a sunset cruise around the millionaire row. The boat was nice... More

My father took me many years ago as a child, so I was excited to take my boyfriend whom had never been to the Islands before. I was thrilled that the tour was very much like I had remembered it. We were lucky enough to be on one of the larger tour boats, so there was ample outdoor seating. We... More

My wife and I, along with our 2 grandchildren were very disappointed yesterday with our 1 hour cruise along 'Millionaires Row'. We sat on the uncovered upper deck to get the best view and I told them they would hear all the stories about the amazing homes we would pass. Much to our surprise, the sound system on the boat...
