In my opinion, this is a much better tour than the Duck boats. It lasts longer, is more scenic and has two stops at Witches Gulch and Stand Rock. Witches Gulch is a fascinating place and it amazed me how many people didn’t get off...More

Captain and tour guides were lovely. Nice comfortable boat. It was pouring rain that day but it didn't matter as the river/lake still looked beautiful, as did the rock formations.

I enjoyed this tour. Two sister did the 2 hour guided tour on the Wisconsin River. Along with two newbies learning the ropes. This was my first trip on this kind of a tour. It was easy to ask questions to the tour guides.

My wife & I have heard of the Wisconsin Dells our entire lives. So, when the change came, we had to check it out. One problem, however, is that the Dells reputation seems to primarily rest on the water parks, which we are too old...More

I think it was less than 2 hours. Both upper and lower are fun and informative. You can't do wrong with either.
