We loved learning the history of all of the mansions and even got to see where Mr Rogers lived while going to college at Rollins College. It was fun going through the little canals to get to the different lakes. Our... More

This was an interesting way to see Winter Park and the many beautiful mansions along the lakes. The narrated tour is an hour long. Do be aware that the 18 passenger pontoon boat is not covered or shaded in any way. You will need sunscreen for sure. When it is hot, this is not a comfortable ride.

My girlfriend had told me she wanted to take this boat trip a while back. I had put it on the back burner because it just did not look like anything special. I was badly mistaken. A pontoon boat takes 10-15 people out on the chain of lakes in Winter Park Fl. Your Captain has immense knowledge of the area... More

Loved the boat ride thru the chain of lakes. Captain gave us some history of the mansions around the lakes. I wished we could have went farther to see more houses. Lots of activity on the lake from Rollins college. I was wondering why there wasn't a top on the boats then we went down the first canal and went... More

This was such a great tour, the scenery was fantastic and it was just such a nice time. Our tour guide was great at informing us while adding in the perfect amount of humor. I can't wait to do the tour again!

Buy your tickets ahead of time, and take water or something to drink, especially if the weather is warm. It can be hot. On a tour ahead of us a woman passed out after the tour ended, probably from dehydration. Soda and water are cheap, so don't pass it buy. The tour was a very enjoyable look at the backyards... More

This was a quaint, supposedly "minor" attraction for our family to do on our latest Orlando trip. When we arrived to the dock on a Wednesday morning, it was busy!!! Parking was a bit difficult to find, but we were able to get on a pontoon boat immediately. It was interesting, fun and picturesque. The little canals are beautiful as... More
