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

We took the 80 minute ride down the river and back was a perfect day, more crowded than I would like but with the perfect weather, what did I expect? The grandchildren were able to go topside and watch the paddle wheel propel the craft along the tour guide keep the information coming and kept the kids interested , Will... More

We went on a Saturday night 6:30 dinner cruise. We parked in the lower lots. The cruise boarded and left on time. The food was great. (We both had the prime rib). Nice guided tour on the trip out, followed by entertaining piano music on the trip back. I would definitely recommend the cruise.

Although there isn't a ton to see after you pass the towering cliffs and rock formations, the paddlewheel boat provides a relaxing and interesting river cruise. The commentary about the early settlement of the river provides insights into the history of the area. After the cruise, don't miss the pothole trail in Interstate State Park (Minnesota side). A bit pricey,... More

The boat drifts down the river sort of aimlessly on this leisurely boat trip (they call it a cruise). The top deck has seating under a sun shade, the bottom has indoor seating surrounded by glass windows. Take your choice for the kind of weather you will encounter. The lower deck has a nice view, so you won't be penalized... More
