My family and I took the boat tour last night which by the way was wonderful till we made our first stop. Upon arriving at the concession stand my family was profiled as just another tourists. The manager stood behind the employee's and let them profile us as just another tourists never confronting my family and apologizing that night. When... More

We took the Upper Dells two hour tour which exceeded my expectations. I was afraid two hours might be boring but it was really great. I especially enjoyed wending our way through narrow passageways and the two land excursions where we got to hike through the impressive sandstone rock formations. The staff did an excellent job. The only boat ride... More

The views were spectacular, the captain sang fun old melodies, the waitress could have been friendlier (so could the captain for that matter) but she did take our picture and bring us our ice teas. They take you into a area that is surrounded by the dells to dock and use the rest rooms, they said their was a gift... More

We took the Upper Dells tour and it was very nice, relaxing, and beautiful! The guides were wonderful! We sat topside, wear sunscreen.

We took the upper dells tour on a Saturday in the summer. The tour is a little pricey at $28 per person but the Dells is a little pricey. The boat has an upper deck that is open air and lower deck with a room and windows, and then a few rows in the back that is open air. Seats... More

The Upper Dells Boat Tour is going to run you $57.00 for two adults but it's wonderful. I've gone on it twice now and would return again. Magnificant beauty that can't be captured with a camera and give it justice.

If you're looking for a peaceful, relaxing river cruise on a warm summer eve, this is it. The scenery, ambiance, and crew/staff are all wonderful. We first took the sunset dinner cruise in July 2012. The scenery along the upper dells is gorgeous, and the walk through Witches' Gulch, extraordinary. Of course, the focal point of the cruise is the... More

Very happy overall with this tour. Guide was knowledgeable about history of the dells and funny to boot! (A college student, Sam I believe his name was) They offered a second boat tour for half price, we choose Duck tour, it was OK too.. but loud.

We took both the upper and lower tours and and I really feel that gave us a great feeling for the natural beauty of the area. We didn't have any interest in the water parks, etc. and just wanted to view the dells. The staff on both our tours were great and gave us a lot of history about the... More
