When we took the boats tours, and we did the upper and lower, it was cold and rainy. However, the ride was still nice and informative. The upper dells have much more to see and you get off the boat twice to see some land spots. I would definitely advise taking the boat tour to see what the dells are... More

We did the 10:30 tour on 5/22. Nice guys running the tour. They provided good information and were courteous and professional. Witches gulch was gorgeous. We enjoyed the history lesson that accompanied the Stand Rock stop. We don't frequent the Dells for the tourist activities. The boat trip was a nice nature outing and a great way to appreciate Wisconsin's... More

We did the upper dells tour and it was so beautiful. It made a stop at Witches Gulch which is a short walk through a slot canyon and it is breathtaking. Our tour guide was great; she knew a lot about the dells and seemed very compassionate about the area.

This review is for the Upper Dells only. I will do a lower Dells review after using my ticket for it later in the year. First, if you only plan on doing one tour, please make sure to use the $5.00 coupon in one of the free booklets for the Dells. If, however you plan on doing Upper and Lower,... More

Going to the slick inlet with the narrow walkway and whirlpool cuttings, and the Stand Rock were interesting facets of the Upper Falls Tour. They are apparently not accessible by any other boat tour on the Upper Dells. It would have better if the Stand Rock dock were finished and the jumping dog fully trained, but we were assured these...

Yesterday I took my mother, on a boat tour, for an early Mothers Day gift, thankfully, this trip made her whole day, our driver Nick, was respectful, and helpful when it came to loading, and unloading the boat at each dock. Also our tour narrator Ranita was very talkative, and respectful to everyone on the boat. Always cracked a joke... More

Don't forget your $5. coupon out of the booklet to help save on this beautiful boat trip. We did the Upper Dells trip which takes just over two hours. There is a restroom on the boat for those with weaker bladders. You make two stops on this trip where you can get out and walk to the witches gulch and... More

We chose the upper Dells after looking at the brochures. Our trip was all that was advertised. It took over 2 hours and had two dockings with walks during the trip. Take your cameras. The scenery is beautiful. Lots of memories made on this trip. Local brochures and magazines ( available at lobby's of store and motels ) have a... More

This boat tour was very organized, very informative, and a great way to see the Dells. We enjoyed the tour! Get an outside seat on the upper deck to see the most.
