My mom and I went on the tour recently and were THRILLED with the quality of the tour. Alex, our tour guide, did an outstanding job as well. The trip is about 2 hours in length and includes 2 stops where the boat docks. Restrooms and snacks are available on land. Tips: *If you sit toward the back of the... More

Did the two hour Upper Dells tour. Free parking more or less across the street on Broadway. Definitely worth the time and the cost. Best part of this tour is you get to walk off the boat at both Witches Gulch, which provides a boardwalk stroll up through a narrow gulch down to the river, and at Standing Rock. Rest... More

My family consisting of myself, husband, 7 yr old & 13 yr old went on the tour on Fri the 22nd; It was fun for the whole family! We really enjoyed the Witches Gulch which is one of the two stops the boat makes for a scenic walk through absolutely STUNNING nature!!! I strongly recommend making this one of your... More

Many "surprises" along the way. Since it is dark, you need to be aware of the surrounding areas for when scary creatures pop out. My wife and I had a blast. Got spooked the most by the chainsaw. All the "creatures" were fantastic, playing the characters to the hilt!!! Will definitely recommend it.

My wife and I took the basic Dells Boat 2 hour tour last weekend. Well worth it and very enjoyable.Tour guide and captain very informative and entertaining. I found it interesting that the Dells Boat tour have exclusive rights to the "Witch's Gulch" and "Standing Rock" in which you get to depart from the boat and take in the sights.... More

The Ghost Boat is a good use of ~$20 for unique entertainment in the Wisconsin Dells area. Fun for the older kids and adults, not recommended for children under 10. We had a group of 4 adults and a young teen and everyone enjoyed themselves. The only annoying part was at the end of the trail, everyone had to stop... More

The cruise was good and the guides were knowledgeable. They had 2 stops on the cruise where you actually get off the boat and the last one you got to see the dog jump. The negative was be prepared to wait to get on the boat. The line can be long and they don't tell you how long it will... More

Our teen age kids and nieces and nephews went they really liked it. It was a fun thing for all the cousins to do. We dropped them off then picked them up. They said it was scary but wished there was more space between groups because they could see things coming ahead of time, but they said it was still... More

My wife and I enjoyed the sunset cruise and watching the sun set over the pines. The captain did a fabulous job of slowly navigating the boat so all passengers could watch the sun set. However, the steak entree, catered by Chula Vista, seemed poorly prepared. All the steaks seemed to be prepared well done. Guest were not given a... More

I got to go on the boat for free and mainly just did it for something to do; however, it proved to be a great experience and is something I would actually pay full price for. (I wouldn't pay for too many things in the Dells.) We had Bob as a driver and Jordan as a guide and they made... More
