The boats are comfortable, the guides knowledgeable and the scenery exquisite. A very inexpensive way to get a better feel for the dynamics of the town. Don't forget your sunscreen, visor/hat and a little something to protect the shoulders is a good idea on a hot Florida day.

This is bliss!!! Sit back and glide through canals and lakes right in the heart of Winter Park, Florida. Modern day adventure that often feels like a trip back in time. You'll like the ease and the guides- true historians hosting you along the clear clean waters at an easy pace.

Had a great time, driver was nice, very knowledgeable about the area. Had a great sense of humor. I would definitely go again. Just pick a day that's not 95 degrees.

Whenever friends come to town, this is a must do. I've ridden the pontoon boats so many times I could provide the narration. Enjoy the scenery but remember your sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat to endure the Florida sun.

Bring water bottles (they do sell water and sodas also), sunscreen, and hats! It was enjoyable and very informative. The guide was friendly and knowlegeable about the area and its residents and history. Although I am from Orlando and now live in Virginia, I do not think this will be one of my "must do activities" on my next trip... More

This review is on ACCESSIBILITY ONLY. Wheelchair and scooter users beware: First of all the street leading to the tour is on a very steep decline to the tour area. You will need assistance going down and then obviously someone to push you back up. Once down the decline there are several steps plus a landing and 5 more steps... More

I have lived on the winter park lakes for 20 years and in Wp for 45 and the boat tour never fails to deliver a great hour of fun. The guides are fantastic and it shows s great side of the city few see. Don't miss it

We did this on a hot day and feared the worst. Actually the boats move fast enough to keep you cool. Skipper Charlie is knowledgeable about the three lakes that you visit as well as the history and homes. We enjoyed the 12 mile / 1 hr tour.

The tours run from 10 am to 4 pm. We just did a hour tour. It takes approximately one hour to tour 3 lakes and canals of Winter Park. Well worth the $14 per person. Less if you are a AAA member (show your card for a discount). You are totally exposed in an open boat so dress accordingly. Our... More
