We took the 2 Nation Tour on the Alexandria Belle. The scenery was great, our tour guide, who grew up in the area was great, knowledgeable, and funny. The stop at Boldt Castle was also spectacular. The only complaint is the cleanliness of the ship. It needs a top to bottom scrubbing. On the second floor there were broken tables,... More

We took the two nation tour which included a stop at the Boldt Castle. The islands and the houses on them are different sizes and styles which makes for a very interesting trip. The route takes you under the international bridge and stops at the Boldt castle. Free parking is available at the pier. No US passport is necessary. The... More

We took the lunch cruise. Don't expect the table cloths, etc. you see in the ads, but the food was good. The narrator of the tour was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. The scenery is magnificent. We stopped at Boldt Castle which was very impressive. I suggest adding the $2 for a tour of the Boat House, a real bargain.

Took the 2-Nation Tour and was rather disappointing. The tour guide gave the tour as if she was on tape delay, often times not mentioning things on interest until they had passed, and would leave out information or give information the was questionable. Ticket was very overpriced. Let's be real here, for someone who runs a tour boat line, a... More

If you want to go to Boldt Castle or are in the area and don't have your own boat, I recommend Uncle Sam Boat Tours. It's just such a beautiful area that needs to be seen from the river. The commentary of the tour guides are usually pretty informative and/or entertaining. I would suggest preparing for the weather though, because... More

The tour we took was to Singer castle. It was very enjoyable 3 hours as we passed by so many beautiful islands. This tour was very interesting and informative. Singer castle was worth of seeing as well - castle has an interesting history and architectural secrets. On the way back our boat had a stop at Boldt castle and a... More

We chose the hour tour just to get a little history on islands. The tour guide was not great reading from cards and stumbling through the routine. Maybe she was covering for someone. Since it was a warm we decided to get a snack and a drink. The person in front of us decided to get a beer but the... More

We really enjoyed our boat tour of the 1000 islands area. We sat on top of the boat, and were able to hear the guide who was speaking very well. We learned a lot about the area, and saw some amazing houses. We also enjoyed stopping and touring Boldt Castle. It was nice that we could take our time at... More

We have taken the Uncle Sam's boat tour every 2-3 years because we love it so much. We like to do the 2-Nation Tour because it is 2 1/4 hr long and you see so much. The boat is clean, there are refreshments and the narrator points out a lot of points of interest and the narration is great. There... More
