If you are the least bit overweight like me, be ready for very uncomfortable chairs. 3 cheap lawn chairs fused together are VERY bad to sit in. Scenery is beautiful, but stops are not as nice. Getting off the boat with 100+ other people and walking down a narrow path is no fun. People stop to take pictures and you... More

Both Upper Dells Tour and Lower Dells Tour were worth it. We enjoyed both very much, each was uniquely different.

The journey down the river was very romantic. The staff and singer on the boat could not of been better. The stop and walk through Witches Gulch is prefect for pictures. The steak and lobster was very good. The sunset was amazing!!! If you are looking for romantic, this is it!!!

I have been on both the upper and lower dells boat tours with this company and they are both good. The upper dells tour has more impressive scenery with towering rock formations and wooded areas around the lake. The lower dells has interesting and unique features in the glacier worn cliffs but is no where near as impressive. These tours... More

We did 2 cruises on the upper dells with one of those being the sunset dinner cruise so you see much of the same scenery but both are long cruises with stops for walking. Beautiful scenery and well worth the money if you've never witnessed these rock formations.

Both of the Dells boat tours pass through glacier-scoured stone around amazing rock formations. The upper tour is longer and includes a refreshment stop. The tour is well-narrated and while it's obviously based on a script, the guides add their own comments. I found the this to be the best part of my visit to the Dells.

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

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.
