We came after Oct 16th by 1 day so we didn't get to go out to the big lake which would have been awesome. But as someone who loves to learn new things it was very informational. Love the bar, and quick food to just eat while waiting. Would recommend this trip but might be more fun in the summer... More

We had a very good meal. The narration given about the sights we were seeing was very informative. Met interesting people every where we went.

We arrived well in advance of our ticketed reservation and waited in line; once on the boat it seemed we were able to sit in any open area - we took a wonderful seat in the front of the boat. Soon after departing a crew member informed us our area was reserved. After making move from one area to another... More

While on a day trip to Duluth while on vacation in Wisconsin, we decided to take a cruise with Vista Fleet. It was their Grand Sightseeing Tour aboard the Vista Star which lasted about 2-1/2 hours. The cruise took us around the whole harbor of the Twin Ports. We seen two 1,000 foot ships that were in the harbor, one... More

We were in Duluth on business, and we didn't want to leave without seeing Lake Superior. This cruise sounded like a fun, economical way for our family of 4 to get to do some sightseeing. It started out pretty bad, though no fault of Vista. We visited in late June from Oklahoma, where we were already nearing triple digits. As... More

It was informative, They need to record the tour information, too many misread parts, volume was too loud, and crying 2 yrs old running all over ruined part of it.

Enjoyed a 90 minute cruise on Lake Superior & the harbor. Several ships were loading grain, coal, etc. was fun going under the aerial lift bridge as it was being raised.

The Dinner cruise was our anniversary treat. We loved the scenery and had wonderful food. The big surprise was learning not just history, but all the commerce that takes place all the time--today. Having visited with parents as a child, attended high school marching band competition as a teenager, taken our honeymoon there, having taken elderly parents for a re-vist,... More

We took the Vista Fleet Express for a ride on the lake. There were seats on top & inside for those who get cold easily which was nice. All the staff were great to work with & our tour guide was very humorous. Very enjoyable experience!

My husband & I went on the grand tour which is normally 1h 45m but thankfully was only 1h 30m the day we went. It was very interesting information but just too long for our liking. I would have preferred a more scenic tour but they did a good job explaining the different buildings/ports etc. Regarding price for the concessions....we... More
