Branson Early Evening Christmas Light Tour

If you're in Branson during the holidays, go on a tour of the city's Christmas displays for an easy and relaxing way to get into the spirit of the season. Traveling by Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van, you'll ride through two twinkling displays, plus head to Branson Landing to see its nativity scene, which appears to be suspended above Lake Taneycomo. End with a stop at the historical Branson Hotel for a glass of wine, hot chocolate, or coffee at the Backstage Cafe and Wine Bar.

Loved, loved, loved this show! Highly recommend this. I felt like it was truly American. They put on a great show, and at the end they recognized the veterans in the room and they did sing some Christian songs at the end. You just don’t see this a lot anymore we were all very impressed. The food was great as well and the view from the boat was very picturesque. The only issues we had was our server kept forgetting us we were the last to get drinks and he also for got to bring one of our plates of food. I felt like he was rushed and maybe he needed some extra help, but it wasn’t anything that would ruin our experience. He was very apologetic though and he did try to make up for it at the end with desert and coffee.

New Year’s Eve cruise was not worth it. We paid $72 a ticket for a $3 meal, and $5 show. We were also told on the phone that there would be a fireworks show. No. My family spends lots of time down here but had never done the bell before, thought this would be a good way to ring in the new year. Lol. The boat was back at the dock around 10 and we got off and came back to town.

We go to the Belle every trip we make to Branson. We went to the early show on New Years eve and were disappointed in a number of things. One of the ladies taking the photos was very rude. They also set up their photo pick up area right in the middle of the area where folks take their own photos in front of the Christmas trees. The actual entree was fine but the salad was a big chunk of lettuce and shouldn't have been called a salad at all. The dessert wasn't the same as the past either. It was terrible. Our server was wonderful and the show was good. But will not be making it a regular visit in Branson for the future.

Approximately three years ago I visited Branson with friends and enjoyed the Showboat Branson Belle. This year I returned with my wife to celebrate the Christmas holiday and all that Branson offers. I particularly wanted to share the dinner cruise with my wife, since trying to explain how wonderful the cruise is, is a daunting task. You need to experience it to enjoy it. Social distancing was in place so nearly half the capacity was limited. In normal times the showboat serves 700 guests, whereas we were told the capacity was capped to 300 for our cruise. I found this reduced number of guests to be preferable not only for health and safety, but compared to when I experienced it with 700 aboard. I found this sailing to be more comfortable. The meal and performances were wonderful. The cast of performers was top-notch and highly energetic and entertaining. I would say this is a must-see venue for anyone visiting Branson, if you don't go, you will have missed the boat!

The food was amazing.the waitress was very friendly and kept our cups filled. The show was good but definitely not one of the best. We werent able to set sail due to high wind so it wasnt as entertaining as we expected.
