The Staff was very friendly....The captain was very interesting while he would explain different parts of the history along the chain of lakes... My Husband and I enjoyed the tour and also learned some things that we didn't know about the lakes in Old Forge. We would most likely be doing the tours again next year.

This was a lovely cruise on the First, Second, Third and Fourth Lake of the Fulton Chain. Our guide, Mike, was clearly spoken, well/informed and charming. If you have two hours in this area, get on this boat. You will love it!!

Lake Cruise company did a great job organizing the railroad trip, shuttle bus service and lake cruise making the whole trip seamless and very enjoyable. The only thing i could think of that would improve the experience is for better speakers in the bottom level. It was really hard to hear the narrator if you were in the bottom level.

This was an amazing afternoon with a very knowledgeable guide and friendly staff. When my lithium camera battery died, they graciously offered to charge it for me (regrettably I had left the charger behind but the gesture was appreciated). My only complaint is that the gift shop was only open until the cruise ended...and when I bought some $70 worth... More

First, the boat itself was a treasure from the past. Then, the weather itself was perfect. We liked the narration of the captain and his handling of the boat was expert. The views were as we had hoped, In brief, everything about our experience was a joy - WE WILL DO IT AGAIN!

You get great value for your dollar.my only complaint was that the plastic chairs on the upper deck were very flimsy old and small. I didn't feel real safe sitting on them. The young man that was helping the... More

We enjoyed our cruise especially the historical background. It's a shame you don't allow water but I understand this falls under a federal regulation.

The boat cruise was wonderful & commentary was great. It was a beautiful day. Our only complaint was the bus driver responsible for our transportation to and from the train station in Thendara. We got to the cruise area uneventful, however, the driver was way too impatient to wait for the handful of guests to go to washrooms upon arrival... More
