Great trip. Takes about 2 hours. Learn the history of the Dells and Stand Rock. Tour guides are good at what they do. Highly recommend it.

This boat ride was very relaxing. Beautiful scenery and the guides were knowledgeable and helpful. I enjoyed getting off the boat twice to walk through canyons. Very reasonably priced.

This tour was amazing! You get to see Witches Gulch and Standing Rock up close and personal. This was well worth the 2 hours and the guides were great!

Enjoyable tour down the river. Very knowledgable crew, beautiful scenery and great stops and walks through the beautiful scenery. We did sit on the top deck. Seats were too close together. If you ended up on an aisle seat you really couldn't see anything.

Upon arrival we were asked if we were with the Snowbird group. We replied no and were put at the end of the line even though all other members of the group arrived after us. We were then unable to sit on the upper deck....More
