My family and I had a relaxing one hour boat ride down the river. The staff was friendly and curtious. The trip was full of narration about the surrounding area, job well done. I only wish it was longer.

It is an hour very well spent. We got to see the minks, ducks and geese. It is so fun to be on the Riverboat. The captain does a great job of explaining everything. You feel the sense of days gone by while traveling on the riverboat. I had a wonderful time and would recommend it to all.

If you happen to be looking for a reasonably priced, relaxing, informative afternoon, take your family/friends/ or just yourself on this one hour long ride along the Cass River in Frankenmuth, MI. It is an awesome ride filled with information about the city, the history of the area as well as beautiful sites in nature. The personal attention given to the boat is outstanding, the captains and crew members are very pleasurable. I make it a point to at least once a summer take someone on this adventure.. Thumbs up all the way on the Bavarian Belle Riverboat!

The Bavarian Belle is a "must do" when in Frankenmuth. It's a nice relaxing way to spend some time with the family while cooling off. My daughter had a blast feeding popcorn to the ducks that were floating along side of the boat. Tickets, snacks, and beverages are all very reasonably priced.
