Had a great time on the double decker boat. Price was reasonable - $26 each. Tour guide was very nice and informative. This is the best way to see the Dells!!! At one stop you get to see these amazing rocks with water gushing underneath. Very beautiful!

My family recently spent a day in Wisconsin Dells. We stopped by the information center and asked the man there what we absolutely needed to see or do in town. He told us 2 things- taking a boat tour to see the rock formations and going to a water park. We happily walked down the street and bought our tickets... More

I just rode the Ghost Boat to Cold Water Canyon on July 20. I made a reservation by phone and was told to arrive 30 minutes early. I did so and there was already a long line of people waiting. I believe we did not board the boats until almost 8:30, which is when the boat ride was supposed to... More

This was a last minute decision and very glad we decided to do it. Make sure to look around for coupons they are everywhere. We went about 5:30 and there was only one other family so that made it really nice. I loved that we were able to get off the boat and walk around and the kids 8 &... More

Warm day on the Wisconsin but even though sunny on the top deck the breeze as we cruised up the upper Dells and back down was very nice. There are two stops on the approx. 2 hour trip: one at Witches Gulch and the other at Standing Rock (made famous many years ago in an iconic photo of a man... More

If you are looking for a relaxing boat tour of the Upper Dells you should definitely take this trip. The tour is very interesting and fun to listen too. Unlike other boat tours I have been on you can actually hear what the guide is saying. Both the tour guide, Kevin, and the boat driver, Lindsay, were friendly, helpful, and... More

The sandstone cliffs, unique rock formations and river offer a lot to photograph - not to mention the performing dog. Being from Florida and not knowing anyone in Wisconsin, we never would have known of this naturally magnificent spot if it weren't for a local we met who spread the word. The boarding/waiting area has seating and is covered for... More

Really enjoyed this, can see why its the classic thing to do when in the Dells. The scenarios great and there are two excursions you can go on too. But beware, this is a tourist trap, after paying for your ticket, they also want you to buy pictures, refreshments, gift shop souvenirs, and booklets.

The service is good but the way of serving the food is not good. Wine is served in a plastic glass bottle, where we expected a beautiful wine glasses. The cruise is maintained not to expected level. The food is not good and looks like a bad quality. We visited on July 9th 2014. Sambi. Eden prairie Minnesota
