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.

This was a relaxing boat ride and very informative. My daughter and son-in-law found it very picturesque also. The only downside would be if you have a younger child it can be a bit long....our little one was 3 and although it was okay, it was a bit long for him. Taking a snack along is great and drinks when... More

Don't miss Witch's Gulch! I almost passed on this trip because I didn't think I would enjoy the two stops, but I'm so glad I went. The boat ride was relaxing, passing through the beautiful scenery of the Wisconsin River. At the stop at Witch's Gulch, the walk on the concrete path through unique rock formations was very interesting. I... More

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
