They make you buy your tickets in advance and you can only get a refund if you cancel 72 hours before. Boat took off while we were waiting to exchange for a ticket after we already paid. You cannot just print tickets at home for easy boarding and avoid any lines. It is a big scam. They haven't heard the... More

Wanted to see Fiesta Italiana's fireworks display differently this year. Had a nice cruise on the Milwaukee river that headed out to the inner harbor. Very scenic waterfront views. Prime area for the show. Cash bar and decent public rooms with plenty of seating. Inside first level was air conditioned.

This was an enjoyable and informative trip down the Milwaukee River and into Lake Michigan around the harbor. I saw areas of Milwaukee I didn't know existed despite living there the first 35 years of my life. I would highly recommend this tour for visitors to the city as well as residents.

We didn't do a tour with food. I booked the tickets the day before we went. I highly recommend booking ahead. Beautiful views of downtown Milwaukee. Tour was hour and 20 minutes down Milwaukee River and the bay area of Lake Michigan. Tour guide was excellent.

Finally I took the tour on 06/12/16!!!! There is... More

This was more than anyone in our group expected. We did the Saturday evening Margarita Taco Cruise. The margaritas were all you can drink and good. The tacos were all you can eat. You also got to build your own taco. The cruise was very fun and an excellent view of the city from the river. It was a great... More

On a Tuesday noon our bus group of 27 was scheduled for a luncheon cruise with Edelweiss. It was a cold, blustery day and having done a number of cruises in cities throughout the MidWest, I was thinking this was going to be a miserable couple hours. How wrong I was! We boarded the immaculate boat, Miss Wisconsin, the tables... More

The Oktoberfest Dinner Cruise on 10/31/15 was a most joyful experience! Only three of us had signed up for this cruise and, believe it or not, they didn't cancel for the lack of ticket sales!

We were on the Saturday afternoon river cruise, and had a really great time. It was a fun family trip, and the cruise was just right. No food was involved, just a few brews from the upstairs bar. Beers were priced fine, as expected. There was a tour guide telling the history of some sites, but really wasn't listening because... More
