My husband and I always take one of the Vista Fleet boat tours. We did notice a change when we went to Duluth this past August. The boat tours were much shorter in duration. We... read more

I was on a large group dinner cruise with a high school program. We were met with aggressive and inappropriate behavior from the crew. Below is a list of what my staff and I witnessed: • An unhappy and unprepared female crew member met me and a student as we were checking in. She said she could not accommodate our... More

Very enjoyable cruise. Informative and guide very knowledgable and funny. were very happy to realize the tickets for the 75 minute sight seeing tour were only $5. Don't know if this was because it was Tuesday or if it was because it was Tuesday afternoon before I discovered this cruise. I had read reviews and knew not to take the... More

My husband and I always take one of the Vista Fleet boat tours. We did notice a change when we went to Duluth this past August. The boat tours were much shorter in duration. We took the Pizza cruise and I don't think we'd do that again. The boat tour itself was fine, but even though we were seated right... More

I live in the Duluth area, but took family from out of town visiting on the Vista. The staff was super friendly, and my family loved the sights around Lake Superior. Even as locals we try and get out a few times every summer. This is well worth your time when visiting Duluth.

We opted for the Grand Sightseeing Tour, where they take you out a ways on the lake and then back into the harbor. It was a decent tour. My boys had a good time during it. The narrator could use some work, but overall ok. We were lucky to have two big ships leaving port while we were on the... More

My husband, two grandsons (8 and 11), and I took a 75 minute tour on the Vista Fleet. It was an unusually hot day for Duluth. One enclosed level had air conditioning but with the windows and two doors open to the outside it didn't do much. Another enclosed level was miserably hot. The open upper level was at capacity...

We had a nice water front cruise. Very relaxing and informative. We had great weather. The only downfall was they pushed down your throat to get snacks, drinks, etc.. Way too much! Not sure if it was really worth $22 each, seemed to go way to fast.

We went to Duluth for our vacation a second year in a row this summer and I made sure we had time to do a Vista Fleet tour again this time. We did the 1 3/4 hour Grand Sightseeing Tour and it was fun to go under the lift bridge and out onto the lake. Such a beautiful view and... More

This is the second time we have done a Lake Superior cruise with Vista Fleet. Both times, we have felt it was well worth the price; however, the food is just not that good. In my opinion, it is NOT worth it to do a pizza or other food cruise. Just go on one of the regular sight-seeing cruises and... More
