My husband and I just went on this tour. It was absolutely beautiful. Dinner was very good and there was even live entertainment on the upper deck. The view the entire trip was breathtaking and the ride was so relaxing. Well worth every dollar spent.

I highly recommend this tour but don't eat on the cruise,the food is terrible. The ham tasted spoiled,the chicken was like nuggets. Definitely not worth $13 a plate.

I take a tour with friends every time we go up, as I am very familiar with the area, but there is so much history, and its a great way to enjoy a nice day on the water with snacks and no worries!

We took the Uncle Sam’s tour to Singer Castle. The tour guide was knowledgeable and funny, and the audio system on the boat was actually good, so we could hear what he was saying. The Castle itself is really interesting. A great experience at a...More

We went on the dinner cruise this past Saturday night. The weather was beautiful, food was delicious, scenery was gorgeous and the entertainment was enjoyable. Great night! Would do again and highly recommend others to do it as well.

What a fantastic way to see the St. Lawrence and the 1000 Islands. The buffet lunch was a good value and had a good variety of food (it included your beverage as well). The upper decks definitely had a better view but the first deck...More

We chose to do the Two Nations Tour AND the Singer Castle tour on the same day. While we enjoyed the tours, we'd recommend doing the two tours on different days. Definitely choose the upper deck if the weather allows; the lower deck has a...More

You can certainly take the shuttle to Boldt Castle and spend as long as you like exploring the castle and the grounds - we spent almost three hours there taking our time seeing it all. Or, take whatever cruise interests you... More
