We stayed overnight in the area on our way back to Michigan from Mt. Rushmore. We chose this stop for the boat tours. We took the Upper Dells tour. It was interesting and pleasant. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. I especially enjoyed the stop at Witch's Gulch where we walked along a boardwalk through rock formations. Kids will enjoy... More

The outside top seats are great for the view but the temps were in the 40's. After the first shore excursion we moved down to the inside. All in all an enjoyable trip with unique scenery, walks and the jumping German Shepherds. Worth the money.

How can you go to the Dells without taking the Dells boat tour! It is what make the Dells the Dells!. 2 1/2 hr boat tour on beautiful River with excellent tour guide. The formations are wonderful and we saw Eagles feasting on a sandbar! Two rather unnecessary stops, but fun anyway. Loved the historical information. Nice change from The... More

It's important to note that Dells Boat Tours offers Upper and Lower Dells tours, plus a combo. We took the 1-hour Lower Dells tour. The boat was older, and the crew's attire wasn't very professional (jeans and sweatshirts, and the older gentleman's sweatshirt was filthy with dirt/stains all over it). That said, the crew members were very friendly and did... More

We had taken the Original Wisconsin Dells Ducks and the Upper Wisconsin Dells Tour,, then last but by no means least, we boarded the Lower Wisconsin Dells Boat Tour. There, to our surprise was Katy, our tour guide from the Upper Dells. This time she was our CAPTAIN! This young lady is multi talented. You can tell how much she... More

enjoyed this trip. Gives you two stops with the witch's area being worth the hike. My only complaint is being "stuck" inside. May have been nice if the tour guides would have encouraged the group to switch floors after the second stop.

Excellent mix of scenery and history with this relaxing 2.5-3 hour tour. The Upper Dells choice gets you out of the boat to enjoy the rock formations on two separate short boardwalk strolls.

It was a gorgeous day to be on the river. The Wisconsin River is calm and peaceful, and surrounded by trees and rock formations. We were on the Belle Boyd, piloted by Bob. Kevin was our guide. They were both knowledgeable, friendly, and funny. We took the Upper Dells tour, which includes 2 stops. They take a photo of your... More

You will not be disappointed. The boat tours will show you the true beauty of the Dells, including sights only visible by water. Safe, reasonable and well worth the time. My first boat tour was when I was 7 (60 years ago). Same ride, same splendor, nature at its best. I have take both the upper and lower many times... More
