Skipper Drew was awesome in our tour. This was the most informative and relaxing highlight of the week. Who would have known there was so much history on the banks of these three lakes. I will recommend to all of our friends!

This is a trip taken across three lakes on a small open top boat. It gives you a fabulous insight into the homes of the rich people of Winter Park. You see all the homes from the rear facing the lakes with their boats and beautiful gardens. It tells the tales of the start of Winter Parks grand lake front... More

Lovely time out on several lakes that connect via canals. The guides are quite knowledgeable about the area. WEAR SUNSCREEN, as there is very little shade, except in the canals. Participants will see things they cannot see from the road and this is well worth doing. Get there early as the boats do fill. CASH ONLY!

These lake and canal tours through the heart of magnificent Winter Park have been going for decades. We live here now....and still take the boat tour every few months just for the sheer enjoyment....and how much we learn from the different boat guides. This is a "must do" for anyone visiting the hidden gen of Winter Park, FL!

We came across this tour by accident after walking along Park Avenue then turning the corner to buy gelato. The tour is great value and the guide was very knowledgable about the area, lake and surrounding houses. It was a hot day but there was a nice breeze when the boat was moving. The canals were very pretty with the... More

My sister and I took the tour over lunch hour. I was very impressed with our tour guide's knowledge of the history of the impressive houses we saw. We went on a really hot day and there's some shade when you go through the canals, but I would recommend going on a cooler day if possible.

We took our kids and grandkids on this boat tour of Winter Park. For $12.00 you get to see the area from the water. Pontoon boats with seats are comfortable for the 1 hour tour. The houses and landscapes are magnificent. You can't see this from the road. The history of the area and the narrow cannels are explored. This... More

We went through little canals all over hung with lush greenery. We saw water foul. The tour guide was funny and we enjoyed the peaceful ride. We would go again. But this... More

A one hours tour on a pontoon boat through 3 lakes and 2 canals. The driver gave a nice presentation of the history and wild life of the area. Good value.
