I currently live in San Antonio and took the opportunity to hop aboard boat cruise that departs the river center mall. The cruise offers panoramic views of the city, highlights fantastic views of art and architecture, and offers a great leaving experience to travelers old and young. The sights, smells from the restaurants, and the sounds of the city make... More

Neat to see some of the areas off of the Milwaukee River that we didn't see by car. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff.

It might have been more fun if you were able to move around more. They book 45-49 people per boat which is WAY too many. If there were half the people then maybe you could dance and have a much better time. I never made it to the back of the boat where the food was because it was too... More

I recently booked the cruise for 11 people. We've been friends for many years and we were looking to do something different. I had been on a river cruise and all of us had a great time so I thought this would be the same. The cruise was okay but the boat was way too crowded. I think the max... More

Third time in six years we did this around Labor Day for my wife's birthday. Six adults one 5 yr old. Great staff, easy to work with. Bring your own food and bev,/ stop at one of the many bars and food places along the way, it's your choice. Lot forward to doing it again.

I recently went on this boat cruise with coworkers. We had about 8 people in our group and there was another small group of maybe 4 others on the same boat. It was a really great cruise. They provided (unlimited) rum punch and margaritas as well as sodas, water, crackers, cheese, chips and salsa. This is a really nice way... More

It was a gorgeous WI summer day. We boarded the boat with about 30 of our newest, closest friends. Our bartender arrived late (last minute) so there was a line for initial drinks. But otherwise, he was super friendly. The crew was awesome and the cocktails were generous. A great time! I'd highly recommend it! I only wish it had... More

We have rented a pontoon boat from Riverwalk Boat Tours on 6 separate occasions, this summer alone! The staff is first rate - always friendly, courteous, helpful - and the boats themselves are fantastic. Everyone who rides with us wants to come back and "captain" their own boat from Riverwalk!

We took a two hour trip on the river and Lake Michigan shoreline. The pontoon was very easy to handle and very comfortable for our group of 7. The instructions prior to leaving were clear and concise. I'm very much looking forward to getting in one more trip before the end of summer.

I have rented a self-captained pontoon boat from Riverwalk Boat Tours on five separate occasion, and none have disappointed. If you're looking for a fun, yet chill activity to enjoy a summer day in Milwaukee while taking in the city views from a new angle, I HIGHLY recommend renting a pontoon boat from Riverwalk Boat Tours. The boats are well... More
