My husband & I took the scenic boat tour. We toured 3 lakes in Winter Park, which were joined by narrow (very) canals. The narrator was very interesting & the scenery great. We did not know that Winter Park has a college, so learned something. The price was very reasonable.

What a lovely and peaceful pontoon boat tour of the lakes within Winterpark Florida. I had no idea there were so many channels and canals joining the lakes. Seeing the historic homes on the lakes was delightful. It was a nice reprieve from the shopping on Park Ave.

If you are in the central Florida area, this is a MUST do couple of hours - a boat ride along the many canals that connect some of the 10,000 lakes in Orange County. The ride concentrates on the upscale town of Winter Park, named for its original founding purpose to give northern wealthy people, like A.G. Bush (3M Company),... More

Always nice to get out on the water This trip came with an interesting commentary about the inhabitants of the area over the years The little canals between the lakes were a highlight We liked it more than the airboat ride we did the next day

We would have paid a lot more for this trip, it was great value for money and I could not more highly recommend it.

This was a pleasant enough trip. Sadly the latent socialist was activated within me. All we saw were posh houses owned by the bourgeoise classes and their private college. Meanwhile the under classes slaved away in the gardens. Most of these rich folk are either there by privilege or from rinsing the lower orders for medical fees mostly. Anyway a... More

This was my 2nd ride with this boat tour. They do a nice job of talking to their guests about the ride, the boat, the lakes, the flora snd fauna, the homes, college and then ask if we have any questions. They do not continuously talk, which is nice too. The canals are fun to go through. It threatened to... More

This is so refreshing to the eye. I've done this twice now and I know I'll do it again. The tour is about 45 min. but it's an amazing one. Our Captain Charlie was filled with information of the lakes that Winter Park has. He surely knew what he was talking about. The view is a powerful one and you... More
