Fun relaxing ride

Lovely scenic ride on the Upper Dells, with two well-timed stops to explore the Witches Gulch and to see the dog jump at Stand Rock. Tour guides were knowledgeable and funny.

We took this two hour tour right at the end of the season and were very happy with the choice. The boat was comfortable, the guide and crew friendly and informative. The two stops broke up the trip nicely and the photo ops were great.

We were in Wisconsin for a family wedding and took time out to enjoy this trip up the river. The autumn leaves were not at their absolute peak but there was plenty of color which made this a very beautiful trip. Our tour guide Gabriel was wonderful and the boat captain (Kate?) was fantastic.

We chose the two hour boat tour with the two stops. This was our second time doing the tour and neither time disappointed. Breathtaking scenery and perfect weather, especially in the spring or fall. The guides are informative and friendly. They used to tell corny jokes but now it seems to have gotten better. I would definitely recommend for adults.... More

Have driven by the Dells so many times on our way to visit our daughter's and family. Finally stopped and took the Upper boat tour. It was wonderful. Informative, breathtaking scenery and beautiful weather for October. We had it all. Wanted to do the Lower also, but it was closed for the season. Will definitely go back to do this... More

We went on this trip in mid October the weather was beautiful and the sights were also beautiful. We enjoyed the stops especially the one with the dog that jumps across the cliff. The guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. It is great for all ages. We were on the top and would do it again.

If one is going to the Wisconsin Dells, this is a must do. If gives you a true concept of how and why the Wisconsin Dells exist - not just as a tourist area. We took both the Upper and Lower tours. They offer two distinct types of scenery. The tour guide was informative and knowledgeable. We would recommend that... More

We had a wonderful time and the scenery was beautiful. The early fall temperature was perfect for a boat ride on the Upper Dells. Our boat trip included two stops to stretch our legs and see Witches Gulch and then a German Shepherd jumped from a cliff across to a very tall column of rock. Very enjoyable. Our tour guides...

This is a two hour boat tour that takes you to the real sights of the Wisconsin Dells on the Wisconsin River. There were two stops on the tour were you get off the boat and walked to beautiful,natural sights along the river. The first stop had food and beverages to purchase and both stops had bathrooms. The tour guides... More
