We went on the upper boat tour. It could be nicer. Beautiful sights while your crammed into a boat and try to enjoy scenery. they let you off at 3 locations where they can try to get you to buy overpriced food and drinks while you walk thru some rock formations. My last boat ride I got stuck next to... More

In September my husband and I toured the Upper Dells on a Dells Boat Tour. The tour was wonderful, the guide was perfect. The tour was very organized and we learned a lot about the area as we luxuriated in the scenery and rock formations. I highly recommend this tour group. My husband got off the boat to see the...

They do this tour in Sept-Oct and it is definitely a lot of fun! Too scary for younger kids but not to bad for timid adults. We went the last weekend they offered it and it was cold so bundle up! The stories the captain tells were fun as were the zombies!

Even if you don't have much time in Wisconsin Dells,you should definitely do this tour.The upper Dells tour is around 2.5 hours,it's better,more beautiful and interesting,of course with the dog.And the Lower Dells is about 45 minutes and less exciting,,but non the less enjoyable.

Yes, this is where you see it - the dog that jumps across the high rock. Super cool! I was on this trip when I was around 10 years old. I live in the area and just returned for the second time. I think I may have to go again soon. I enjoyed this thoroughly. Especially interesting if you like... More

What a great chance to see these amazing cliffs and rock formations up close!!! You can almost hear the rush of the waters that roared thousands of years ago thru, over and around these mountains to carve out the Wisconsin Dells. The boat tour allows you to get off and walk up a wooden boardwalk to go thru the Witches... More

I was hesitant to go on this ride with my family last weekend because. the snot-nouse kid selling the tickets was rude and stupid. Paying $25.00 a head for two hours seemed like a lot of money and the kid being rude did not help matters. Every time we had a question his remarks were getting worse. So if they... More

GPS led us astray and we ended up in the middle of the Wisconsin Dells. As we were driving through town we noticed the sign for the Dells Boat Tours. We stopped out of curiosity and when we realized how reasonably priced the 2 hour boat trip was we figured why not. We were not disappointed. The boat ride was... More

It was really cool to go through the Witches Gulch. It's amazing the temperature drop as soon as you enter the bluffs. You also get to see Stand Rock and watch the German Shephard Dog jump between the formations (there is a net in case you're worried about that!) We would like to go back to the Dells again during...

We took the upper dells tour on an overcast day. It was well worth it...we saw a bald eagle as well as a golden eagle! Captain Al was great at giving us information and loved the 2 excursions to see the rocks close up. But, I would do this second if you want to do the ghost tour as you... More
