Based on the recommendation of a mutual friend, 4 of us took the tour on a warm & sunny spring day! It was a great hour to be on the water, made even better by our guide's knowledge of the lakes & canals, Winter Park's history and the homes on the lakes. Best money we've spent in a long time!

What a great way to spend a couple of hours with friends.....a Scenic Boat Tour in Winter Park FL. The ride was an hour in time and our "Skipper Alan" was full of facts, funny and relaxed. He had some funny stories and everyone on the boat had a great time. We will be back in 2016 for sure....I hope... More

This boat tour was a great way to view Winter Park. You get an hour on the boat. Our tour guide Alan was informative and funny. I think we learned more about Winter Park on his tour and in any of the local museums. On warning, there is no shade on these boats, wear sun screen and/or take a hat.

An hour of cruising around the lakes and canals of old Winter Park. The driver/guide was great and we saw lots of trees, birds, and homes while we learned the history of this interesting area. Note that the boats are open so it can get hot on a sunny, hot day. I had no trouble parking right near by. The... More

This is a fun thing to do if it is a nice day. We enjoyed being out on the water and the price, 12$ cash, is perfect.

The boat tour was going to be the highlight of our family day trip to Winter Park from Tampa. We rushed through lunch and the Morse Museum to be able to arrive in plenty of time for the 3pm tour last Wednesday. Parking is very limited (one handicapped space is even blocked and unavailable), but we secured a spot. I... More

This trip is for those who rarely have an opportunity to get out on a boat and see homes along a waterway. Granted, the homes along the water are very expensive...I believe the most expensive was 15 million. Some of the homes were owned by celebrities like Mr. Rogers of children's television fame, the Sinclair oil family, football players, etc.... More

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.
