This was a very nice tour. Had a lovely day on the boat and the house was very cool. Also did the Boldt castle. Huge! Amazing detail on the first floor. Can't wait to see what it will look like each year

Nice tour to the Singer castle, very informative, really enjoyed it. Boat ride was nice , service ok, not very personable. Heading back to the Heart island to tour the Boult castle.Tour is a little expensive.

We did the two nation and Singer Castle combo tours over two days. Each one was well presented and the staff was friendly, fun and accommodating. Got to see all of the major highlights and had great weather! Excellent service.

This was an excellent way to tour the surrounding region. One has choice of tours to choose from. The guides are very informed and allow questions from the crowd. Once you secure parking then you wait with different groups for one hour, two hour or...More

If you would like to go to Boldt Castle first, you could take the water taxi. The Uncle Sam tours will take you on the tour then on the way back to Alexandria Bay, the Boldt Castle stop on the way back.
