Enjoyed this trip more than we thought we would. 1 hour boat trip around 3 lakes viewing fabulous homes and landscapes. Boat driver provides great "color". Boats have no protection from sun but breezy so you keep cool.

We went on the boat tour in the afternoon. The weather was perfect. Once you park and walk down to get your tickets, it's a short wait for your tour to begin. The boat was clean and the captain was friendly and knowledgeable of the area. There were canals that I pass on the road everyday and never knew they... More

What an awesome boat tour. I have had boat tours and nothing as relaxing and calming as this one. Staff was very very polite and knowledgeable in the history of the lakes covered by the tour. And you get a complimentary cold bottle of water just remember to bring your shades and hats. I will be back very soon with... More

Have been on the tour twice. Both times were super laid back and easy with little planning needed on our end. Guides are nice and seem like they genuinely enjoy giving the tours. Doesn't last too long, it's too expensive. This is a great tour to take visiting out of town guests on to see and learn more about Winter... More

We went around noon and it was very crowded. However they have multiple pontoon boats going out at the same time. Thought this was excellent. When I saw the crowd I feared we'd have to wait but that wasn't the case. They have a bathroom near by so you can use it before you go out. Tour itself was very... More

This attraction has been ongoing for many many years and even tho I am from Florida and the nearby area, I have never been on this tour. What a find. The tour operator really was informative and happy to answer all questions. We went into 3 different lakes via canals that you would be surprised the pontoon boat could get... More

I have been on this tour 3 times and this last time we had Tom. His voice was much clearer and more information was given, and it seemed more of the lakes were covered. I would recommend the tour to anyone - definitely worth your time - but try to ride with Tom!

Very interesting tour... Guide was very good. Interesting information in the previous house owners in the lakes and the history of the town. Wear a hat, no shade on the boats due to low bridges the boats go under.

Floatin' on a pontoon! Cruise the chain lakes of Winter Park and learn a little about their history from a witty, knowledgeable, and friendly captain as your guide. We took along an umbrella in case the sun got too hot on the open boat but we didn't even have to use it. We cruised along in the cozy 18 seater... More

Wife and I had been wanting to take the Butler Chain tour for a while and finally found the opportunity to do so. The one hour tour was a great thing to do as a alternative to " shopping" on Park AV. (At least for me). Our pontoon boat, with Andy driving was full and he did a great job... More
