All reviews that say Upper Dells boat tour is a must are right!! I went to Wisconsin Dells a number of times but it was all about waterparks, restaurants and resort town environment. Finally decided to do something different and so happy about ir. That's how everyone can appreciate what Wisconsin Dells is really about - very rare and beautiful... More

Great chance to get away from some of the artificial environment of the Dells. Got a great deal on Groupon for the tour. Simply a lovely way to see the natural beauty.

The whole reason this place exists is because of the Upper and Lower Dells.So what is a stay here without enjoying these sites? I examined the various tours available.With only one day here, we chose the 2 hour Upper Dells boat tour. Don't do what we did, however, and pay full price. Either purchase online or wait to arrive and... More

Boat Tour starts off in Downtown Dells at River Level by taking stairs or elevator. Tours didn't seem to really have a fixed schedule but left around every 30ish minutes it seemed. Tour is relaxing, boats are a bit dated and could use a bit of upkeep into the 21st century, but hey when you're the monopoly boat tour of... More

One of the most relaxing and beautiful trips in the Dells. The different rock formations are magnificent. The walks to Witches Gulch,and Stand Rock are wonderful. Very informative information about the Dells history. Every time we have taken it one or two eagles are hovering above us on the boat. Very worthwhile trip.

Try to sit on the top. Knowledgeable crew members bring the Dells to life. Great views of the cliffs. Really really enjoyed the Witches Gulch stop. That was cool!

A nice trip and on beautiful September afternoon. The boat and seats were clean and comfortable. The guide gave a very nice rendition/explanation/history of the Upper Dells Area. At the rest stop, the snack bar offered a nice variety and the rest rooms were clean! Its always fun to see the dog jump to Stand Rock. I frequent the Upper... More

We took the boat trip in the upper dells and it was well worth the time. The sights were awesome! The staff was very informative. I learned some interesting facts on this trip. The stops we made were allowed us to get close to the rock formations.

Thank jpandpj
