1st time on the Taylors Fall Princess for a three hour dinner cruise last Saturday evening. The weather was nice, the staff very attentive, the music was great and we loved all of the historical facts that the Captain gave to us along the way. The dinner was exceptional as was the value for the entire trip. We are definitely... More

My wife and I took our mothers, both in the 80's, for a trip down the river on a paddleboat. All four of us loved it. The scenery was great. The narration was entertaining. Couldn't ask for a better trip.

My Husband and I have done this trip twice. Once in the fall and now in the supper. We had such a nice time BOTH times! Each trip is a bit different since rivers are always changing.. The beauty of this area is one reason why we keep coming back. It is easy enough to book on line- you can... More

We went a few years back during peak color time, and this boat ride was fantastic. This year we missed the colors, but the narration was still excellent. We enjoyed the boat ride and the kids liked looking at the rock formations.

This is a great tour of a hidden treasure of WI/MN. The captain was full of information about the area & the scenery was beautiful. Very pretty rock formations & bright fall colors. We chose a really cool morning but decided to sit on the deck for the best view. There is an enclosed area & refreshments are available. Really... More

We boarded the Taylors falls princess and we enjoyed the experience. The tour takes about 90 minutes and goes through a beautiful river valley with the captain also acting as the tour guide with information about the valley and its history. Some people might find the price of $17.5 on the weekends on the higher side, but its definitely worth... More

Lazy paddle boat trips couldn't be much better. It was a slow and comfortable ride down the river with some good information to boot. Our kids got pretty bored after 20 minutes of the 80 minute tour. After you clear the rock ledge shores, it's basically looking at Minnesota and Wisconsin wooded hills. I would recommend this more to a... More

Yesterday - my husband and I floated down the lazy St. Croix River on the St. Croix Princess at Taylors Falls, MN. A wonderful trip on a double decker paddleboat - was the perfect way to spend a beautiful fall day in Minnesota. An 80 min., fully narrated tour, took us by fishermen, kayakers and breathless scenery. Rock climbers could... More

We did not find the tour location. The web site was incorrect. The address was incorrect. When we called the company that runs the place about the problem we had they would not refund any amount of the money we spent to reserve the boat ride. The company who did the boat ride did not send information nor did they... More

Dear Deborah, I'm sorry that you were unable to find our location. Your husband did call our office afterward and we walked him through our website and he realized that you weren't on our website to find the address. You are correct, we would not offer you a cash refund, but we did offer you a complimentary trip anytime for... More
