This is my second time on the Belle. The staff is great. We always go to the upper deck and decide to opt out of the dinner. The houses are beautiful and the other boaters are friendly. Great attraction for families and couples.

My sister and I went on this tour and and so much fun. We took lots of photos, and even tossed a coin in the lake. Our guide was so funny, she kept laughing because I sat the whole time instead of walking around the boat.

We recently took an afternoon sight-seeing cruise. They also offer luncheon and dinner cruises, but we were more interested simply in the sight-seeing. It bothered me somewhat that I had previously called (a week and a half prior) to make a reservation, and they didn't have me on the list when we arrived. It didn't matter, as they weren't at...

There were some beautiful homes on the tour! The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the home owners and their contributions to the local economy. My son is 2 and he loved looking out at the water! They offer snacks on board as well! For an hour and 15 minute round trip, take it and do something a little different.

We made reservations through our B&B host. I order the Prime Rib and my wife ordered the chicken. The bar was excellent and the staff as the Captain was great. We were brought a salad that took 2 to 3 bites and it was finished. Then comes the main course. I ordered the prime rib medium well that part was... More

Luncheon cruise (with limited menu items) on Lake Hamilton aboard an old steamboat, refitted for current use. Narrated tour of fancy homes on the lake, usually discussing views off the port side (left). Audio was not working on all levels at all times but what could be heard was well performed. Cafe items available for purchase. Can move from deck... More
