“Great way to spend the day”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

We took a tour that included some of the river, the 3rd ward, and the lakefront. This was a great way to spend the day. It was fun to see the redevelopment in Milwaukee alog the water, refreshments were available on board. Nice way to spend a day.

“90 minute Sightseeing tour on Vista King”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I absolutely loved this tour, the information and narration by the guide was top noptch and entertaining.. i never felt bored or disinterested and left with a new appreciation and knowledge of Miwaukee. It only cost me $15 and was worth every penny. Unfortunatley, i didnt get to sample the concessions stand so i cant comment on that.. but if you find yourself with some free time, i highly recoommend this one.

“Unknown Treasure”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

I had no idea this place even existed. My 15 year old daughter and I decided to take this trip on a Thursday afternoon. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the various buildings along the way. He told jokes and asked some trivia questions for prizes. The view of the city from Lake Michigan was beatitful. My teenage daughter and I both commented on how good of a trip it was. I made sure to tell people all about it after we got back home.

Lots of space, take you up and down the harbor, inside the breakers. Great city view. Excellent music!

“A good 90-minute tour”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Two companies offer boat tours and I chose this one for the convenient location. On a July Sunday afternoon there was plenty of room on board, with a choice of sun, shade or cabin seating. The commentary was informative and light-hearted, and there is a choice of snacks on beverages at reasonable prices.

A good way to see the river, go under the lifting bridges and out on to the lake. Our tickets cost $15.
