This is a fun tour, especially if you're tired of walking Park Ave and want to take a rest. Tour was $15 for an hour tour. Boats are pontoon like, but with a little more horsepower. There is no canopy or cover overhead so if it's hot or sunny, make sure to wear a hat or put on sunscreen. Tour... More

We try to do the Winter Park boat tour at least once a year and always bring out-of-town guests here. We learn something new every time we do this tour. There is some serious money (and interesting stories) tied up in the houses on those lakes.

Great way to enjoy winter park. Beautiful homes line the lake. A super activity to do with out of town visitors.

The scenic boat tour in Winter Park is a great little tour. The guides are friendly and the tour itself is very interesting. If you have a half day to wander WP, take the tour, go to the Morse museum, eat at Bosphorous on Park Ave and then have a dessert at Peterbrooke Chocolate just down the street. You won't... More

Loved seeing the boat houses in the canal and some of the local history. It was a tad boring with a lot of details about the local college.

There are already many reviews touting how wonderful this tour is. In fact, my brother-in-law and wife brought my wife and I along for the experience because they had gone on it before and loved it. So, risking a bunch of "WAAAAAATS?", I want to give a more balanced view. First Caveat: * It's a pontoon boat ride, no canopy.... More

We have been visiting Florida for a long time and never heard of this attraction but a local recommended the lake boat tour. It's really nice to go on the lakes, travel thru canals to a different lake and see the beautiful houses surrounding them. Even saw the house Mr. Fred Rogers lived in! We were told that all the...

We have been to Winter Park for a good number of years with friends; but they seemed reluctant and had dissuaded us. However we decided to take a chance and we are really glad we did! Firstly there are no covers on these pontoon boats, so it is not worthwhile to go on a rainy day AND wear sunscreen for... More

This is something I love to do as an hour of learning of the history of Winter Park and enjoying some fresh air at the same time. Last Sunday was another perfect Florida day and my friends and I enjoyed this trip once again seeing the beautiful homes around the lake, the various birds being pointed out and the trips... More

Reasonable price at $14 a person. Enjoyed our hour on the water touring the various small lakes. The guide was knowledgeable and humorous. Saw various wildlife including rare white Pelicans.
