Our party ranged in age from kids to seniors and everyone thoroughly enjoyed this river cruise. It was a beautiful day, made more special by being out on the river seeing the stunning formations and learning about the geological and cultural history of the river and surrounds. The crew were very friendly, helpful and informative. The two stops where one... More

Loved this tour of the upper Dells. Two stops at interesting places along the way. It is sad that the Native Americans can no longer provide their show out here. I wouldn't miss taking this ride again if I go back to the dells.

I remember going on the boat tours 45 years ago when I was just a little kid, and it's simply a must-do every time we go to the Dells! I could probably point out all the rock formations and tell all the stories/legends, I've heard them so much, but the fact is, it's just so beautiful, being on the water,... More

Got down to the dock just as the boat was leaving so had to wait 45 min for the next one good part- first ones onboard to get the front row on top deck. 3 blue lawn chairs welded together on either side of boat -chairs are not bolted down. Hot day should have brought a hat and water. $... More

My wife had never been, and I had not been for decades; but we were traveling through the area and stopped in. What a wonderful 3 hours. Ample off-site parking, and shuttle bus service to the door. The Upper Dells Tour is relaxing, with great and instructional guide talking about the various sites. There are 2 stops with easy walks.... More

My husband and I had not been to the Dells since we were teenagers, many years ago. We decided to spend a day and a half here on our way home from a tour of Taliesin in nearby Spring Green. We both decided to take the Upper Dells boat tour because of the stops at Witches Gulch and Stand Rock.... More

More than just a boat tour: also a unique experience for nature lovers to see something new. We've been repeat customers for many years. Boats are clean & well kept; trails are an easy walk (nothing difficult). The Captain was knowledgeable about the area, and showed experience and talent in boat handling (I've heard even those Captains that have worked... More
