We took the Upper Dells Boat Tour. It was a very enjoyable ride with the boat personnel telling us about the river and surrounding area. The ride included two stops where we could walk a path and see some things on land. There were also snack shops/gift shops at each stop. The walking part was optional--you could always just stay...

Wonderful time had by my 20 year old , 24 year old , and I. We sat on top and loved every single minute 2 hours and 10 minutes. The first stop was our favorite as the trail took us through rock formations. Would not recommend for families with very young (2 and under ) because it is 2 hours... More

This was an awesome boat ride. I was very scared at first, but ended up relaxing and enjoying the ride. We where in the second row and got soaked. You will defiantly get soaked by the end of the ride. We will be going again when in the Dells.

So here's a bit of news I learned- folks who visit Wisconsin Dells don't necessarily know that there's much to do beyond the water parks. So, I fully recommend the boat tour to get to know why the Dells are the "Dells". However, the problem with the boat tour is the seats on the boat. They are not very accommodating... More

I took the jet boat. It was very exciting and fun. Wear things you don't mind getting soaked I would recommend a bathing suit under your clothing. There were times that the tour guide gave a little history and showed rock formations. It's a 12 mile ride and I would definitely do it again.

If you really want to see something beautiful, something your children will remember long after they have forgotten the water parks, go on this tour. We took the upper Dells tour, which was two hours of lovely tall pines, high sandstone cliffs and cool breezes from the water. There are two stops during the tour when you can get off,... More

The upper dells was a great tour with 2 stops to get out and explore. The seating is first come first serve, and if you get stuck sitting in the bottom of of the boat you really miss out on the scenery. I would have paid more to sit up top if the tickets had a price differential. I felt... More

especially enjoyed the stop at witches gulch. chance to walk and take close up pics of the rocks. the skies were clear and the air warm on our visit. there was a little effort due in the stops, but it was easy for most. got a great pic of the dog jumping the rocks.
