Took tour based on friends recommendation. Tour, about an hour long, was nice despite very cool weather. Our guide was a nice older gentleman that gave the narrative, which included some of the lamest puns and jokes since Henny Youngman. Nice trip around lakes and through canals. Scenic.

If you have the opportunity to visit this wonderful city be sure to take the scenic boat tour of Lake Osceola. For a mere $12 per person, you are one of 16 people in a pontoon type boat that wanders the beauty of Lake Osceola with an informed guide. Relax as you meander through the narrow canals connecting the lakes... More

This tour gave a beautiful intro to the lakes and mansions of Winter Park. Our guide Daniel gave a humorous and enjoyable narration. Lots of fun!

Every hour on the hour a flotilla of small (18 passenger approx) pontoon boats drop off and load up. The day we went there were five boats, and we got shut out of the 3 pm tour because we showed up at 2:45. So we bought tix for the 4 pm tour. I suggest you go early in the day... More

The tour is an hour long, pontoon ride costing $12 per person. Drew was an excellent guide, and it was easy to hear his commentary. Three lakes--connected by narrow canals--provided pleasant scenery and the opportunity to view some magnificent homes. It was quite enjoyable.

We went on this boat tour yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were amazed at the tiny canals and got to see many estate homes in the high real estate market. We saw Rollins College and drove though it later as we found it so interesting. Good way to spend an hour and not bad at all for a $12... More

This was a pure spur of the moment decision to go and do. We had read about this tour and decided to give it a go. Turned up and got on the 3.00pm tour and it was just great. A relaxing trip around three of the lakes including the connecting canals which are beautiful with some of the flora and... More

Only 12.00! Where can you go in Orlando area for 12.00? Around a hour tour of the lakes with a very informed tour guide Dan. Saw lots of beautiful mansions. Very relaxing and would highly recommend.

This is a nice tour of three different lakes that are connected with man-made canals. View the million dollar mansions along shore and pretty scenery. Boats leave every hour No reservations needed, so that takes off the pressure of being there at a specific time. VERY nice staff. We enjoyed it.

Having lived in Central Florida for quite some time, I wasn't expecting much from this tour. I was just looking to do something fun with my young son. Boy, was I surprised with this tour! The staff was friendly and efficient, and I was able to get on one of their boats despite the large turnout. Our boat captain was... More
