We took our family on this Upper Dells tour, including our 3 and 6 year old grandchildren. Tour guides did a nice job (although having 18 year olds as tour guides seemed a bit questionable; no more tenured guides driving the boat?). We enjoyed stopping...More

Like someone else said, this is what the Dells is all about. Children now only think of the Dells as a waterpark capital. We had Chris, Abby, and Joe and they were great guides. It turned into about 2 1/2 hours. Because of high waters,...More

My wife and I went on a Friday late morning. Pretty full boat. We saw beautiful land and riverscapes. Witches gulch was fascinating. Guide and boat captain were knowledgeable and friendly. Note. They offer a sunset dinner cruise also, but be sure and book that...More

We have not been on the lower Dells but I don’t see how it could be better than the upper. You make 2 stops and get out of the boat for about 15 or 20 minutes. The witches Gulch was my favorite stop. You walk...More

In my opinion, this is a much better tour than the Duck boats. It lasts longer, is more scenic and has two stops at Witches Gulch and Stand Rock. Witches Gulch is a fascinating place and it amazed me how many people didn’t get off...More

Captain and tour guides were lovely. Nice comfortable boat. It was pouring rain that day but it didn't matter as the river/lake still looked beautiful, as did the rock formations.

I think it was less than 2 hours. Both upper and lower are fun and informative. You can't do wrong with either.
