We took the two hour trip as it went into Lake Superior as well as the harbor. The narrator on the boat was very knowledgeable and well-spoken. We had a better understanding of Great Lakes shipping when we left the Vista boat. Highly recommend.

I bought a Groupon half price 2 hour cruise to be used this summer. The company was super helpful in setting up reservation date. The cruise was very informative with a knowledgeable narrator. Boat was spacious for the number on board and very clean. Due to an incorrect map from Yahoo! we wandered around for half an hour looking for... More

Informative tour. As a recovering history teacher I appreciate those who provide a sense of history to the public is a palatable manner. Dillion did a commendable job. Not perfect but very good. The other crew also did well. Thanks.

The pizza cruise is not worth it! I wouldn't even recommend doing it for the half off rate on groupon. On top of that the pizza was burnt and not good at all!

Grand Tour Cruise was well worth the money and time. I learned a lot about Duluth and Lake Superior from the tour guide, Dillion. He had a good delivery method with funny material mixed in with the great information. A good way to spend a couple of hours to learn about town and the lake.

The sights were lovely, but almost ruined by the highly annoying narrator. She seemed to know her information but her delivery method was obnoxious and self-serving. It was not very professional. We couldn't wait for it to end. There were a few quiet moments when her overly-animated voice wasn't blaring over the speakers, but those lapses were few and far... More

This was a great two hour cruise around the harbor. Very informative. Cute guy giving narration and trying to be funny. My 10 year old grandson enjoyed the views and ride. Snacks and bevearages available. Right now a half price coupon on Groupon which we took advantage of. We love the Duluth and North Shore area. We were blessed with... More

Did the morning narrated tour. As mentioned in other reviews, some predictable jokes, but entertaining and informative. Good way to get familiar with the Canal Park area while enjoying a boat ride. We were fortunate to see several big lake cargo ships and even followed one under the aerial lift bridge. The crew was very efficient and safety conscious. Our... More

We took our 3rd cruise this summer, this time the "Grand Site Seeing Tour" aboard the Vista Star. 1 3/4 hour guided tour of the Canal area and harbor. The tour guide Kayla was great, very knowledgeable and entertaining. If you look around you can find coupons, ranging from $1 off up to $5 off your ticket, (we didn't come... More

This tour is billed as a harbor tour and that it is. We took this tour last week with a group of children and teens. The tour is about and hour and 45 minutes, but that felt way too long. The ship takes you under the lift bridge, which is very cool, and out through the canal into open water... More
