We have lived here now for 11 years and we went years ago with a homeschool group which we really enjoyed. My husband's sister was in town and we went, 6 of us. We had such a great time showing them things we knew about and the guide shared things we forgot about. Thanks so much for the great time... More

We took a picnic dinner cruise and had an enjoyable time. The weather was beautiful, the narration professional, the food delicious, and the service excellent. The staff made eye contact (which tends to be unusual in many service venues) and were very pleasant. We will go again!

Though we have enjoyed the whole Taylor's Falls/St Croix Falls area for hiking, camping, meals, this is the first time on the boat. We had perfect weather and the whole experience is pretty basic: Get in line early to get a good seat on the outside up top for the best air and views, but the chairs are all the... More

While staying in Minneapolis we took a weekend jaunt to Taylor Falls, MN. What a gorgeous drive I must say. It was nearing Fall and all the trees where in Autumn colors of red, orange, and gold. Absolutely beautiful! We took the Taylor Falls Scenic Boat Tour and really enjoyed it. It was a beautiful day and this relaxing little... More

What a lovely way to spend some time! A beautiful scenic boat ride, lots of information (historical and geological), and fun. I would recommend this trip for anyone.

This is not a major scenic ride or much of a historic attraction, but a nice, relaxing 80 minutes on the water. The most exciting part of the ride, in the low water of late summer, is when the boat travels through a shallow portion of the river about 18" deep. You can see clams and stuff on the bottom....

Went on this tour in july, it was okay. It had some great facts thrown out along the way, but a lot of awkward silences, the tour guide would spill some random facts, then be like "and with that, I will leave you to enjoy the scenery for about 5 minutes" , so there were a lot of awkward silences...

We had an awesome night on the dinner cruise this past Saturday night! There was live music, Charlie O., and he was great to listen to and sing along with. Both my husband and I chose prime rib for our dinner choice and oh my gosh, that was delicious!!!! Mike, the captain, has been working for the boat tours since... More

We chose the Mexican Fiesta Friday evening tour/dinner. Very relaxing. Food was just OK, but what can you expect when you have to serve tacos, beans and rice on a moving vehicle without a kitchen. Klondike "Taco ice cream novelty" was actually a nice touch for dessert. I would say the value was good because we got 15% off by... More

We went on this boat when the weather was poor so I am sure that didn't help the experience. The paddleboat does an 80 minute tour the river. Pretty scenic as Taylor Falls is lots of rocks. The tour included looking at various rock formations to see if you could see what tour guide described. It was a leisurly ride... More
