We took the boat tour last weekend. The 80-minute trip was nice and the guide seemed to be knowledgeable but we had a very difficult time hearing him during most of the trip. We were on the open upper deck and the speaker system up there was not very effective in carrying the guide's voice to everyone. It was a... More

This boat tour is especially beautiful in the Fall when the leaves are turning along the river. The boat is comfortable with indoor or outdoor options. The staff was friendly and informative. You won't be disappointed!

Taylors Falls is absolutely beautiful this time of year. The weather is cool and crisp but the scenery is absolutely amazing. We've really really enjoyed the boat trips going down the river and seeing all the people in the natural sites. It's very cold so you want to make sure you dress in layers but you will truly enjoy this... More

We took the 80 minute cruise and it was a nice ride. The Captain does a good narration about the area along the way. The boat has bathrooms and a snack and drink counter. We did get to see a few Eagle's along the way, and the Captain pointed them out for everyone to see. It was a leisurely ride... More

Beautiful day-----great "boat"-----great scenery----$34 (for 2 seniors bought over the phone )------you save about a dollar if payed for over phone or on line.It's not a "wow - was that exciting" kind of boat ride----it's a leisurely ride ( with a tour guide explaining along the way )---along a beautiful river with some great cliffs.

Relaxing narrated paddle wheel boat trip! Such a fun ride it was and Mother Nature was serving beautiful weather and views. Enjoyed watching the cliff climbers and kayakers on the water.A couple bald eagles flying around was a nice surprise. We would highly recommend to all !

I took my family and niece on the 80 - minute tour and we really liked it. Those of us over the age of 8 really, really liked it! It got a little long for the kids. The views of the dells and foliage are wonderful. At first I thought $20 per adult was a little steep, but the length... More

My husband and I took the Taylors Falls Scenic Boat Tour on September 9. Although it rained, what a lovely trip. We arrived just before launch and most people had found seats in the 1st floor covered area. We had coats and decided to sit on the open top deck in the rain. Although we got pretty damp (and went...
