We purchased advance tickets online and got on early trip. The crew was friendly and they explained the entire trip thru the Dt Lawrence rver. The stop at Boldt castle was amazing and spent a few hours relaxing and touring home

Great Customer Service, good parking, excellent oration of the local sites. We paid for the luncheon cruise. The food variety was limited. If you are a fussy eater it would be best to just skip the luncheon and go for the tour.

Uncle Sam Boat Tours does a wonderful job of sharing information on this beautiful area, including history as well as current information. The guides are always very personable and helpful in answering any questions guests may have. They allow children under 12 to drive the boat and give them certificates which is exciting for them. It is a great tour.

If staying in the area, Uncle Sam Boat Tours is a nice option to visit Thousand Islands and Boldt Castle in the US side (Gananoque would be the other option in Canada). They offer several and different tours and be sure that there is one that is the interesting for you. Once in the boat, there is a stop in... More

We took the 2 Nation boat tour that is offered. It is an informative and relaxing boat tour around the 1000 islands. Our guide gave a great explanation about the sights along the route. The boat is clean and comfortable with outdoor and indoor seating. There is a snack bar and bathroom aboard.

We took the Uncle Sam's combined tour of the Bolt Castle on 8/14/16 and Singer Castle on 8/17/16. When we landed at The Bolt Castle, we were immediately offered a golf cart ride to the entrance when they saw I was using a walker. They also informed my husband and I that there was an elevator in the castle we... More

Originally some friends were going to join us from home for a visit to the Thousand Islands. Neither had been here, so a boat ride with narration was on the itinerary. Unfortunately they had to cancel. But that did not mean that we could not do it. So we did. We sat on the upper deck, which was a blessing... More
