We had a wonderful time and the scenery was beautiful. The early fall temperature was perfect for a boat ride on the Upper Dells. Our boat trip included two stops to stretch our legs and see Witches Gulch and then a German Shepherd jumped from a cliff across to a very tall column of rock. Very enjoyable. Our tour guides...

This is a two hour boat tour that takes you to the real sights of the Wisconsin Dells on the Wisconsin River. There were two stops on the tour were you get off the boat and walked to beautiful,natural sights along the river. The first stop had food and beverages to purchase and both stops had bathrooms. The tour guides... More

We took the two-hour Upper Dells tour in September in somewhat iffy weather--cloudy and cool--but it didn't rain and we were able to enjoy the scenery anyway. Our guide, Nick, a native of the area, was excellent. He gave us lots of information but didn't talk excessively. It was definitely worth going a little bit out of our way for.... More

We took the upper dells boat tour to witches gulch and standing rock. Two hours in length. Great scenery with two off boat excursions. Witches gulch was beautiful. The only two complaints I have is the price 75.00 for two adults and one child. Kind of pricey. And if you are a larger person, the chairs on the boat are... More

We had low expectations knowing the tourist traps in the Dells. My husband, two kids (16 & 14) and I wanted to experience the nature of the Dells and had a great 2 hour tour. We loved that we got to get off twice to walk up to see the Witches Gulch and Stand Rock. Very easy walking with concession... More

Very glad we took the Upper Dells Boat Tour. It is well worth the 2 1/2+ trip up the Wisconsin River. Captain Joe and guide Virginia shared information and stories about the area, adding an interesting note to the trip. The two stops were welcome breaks. Witches Gulch was a closeup look at the sandstone crevice worn out by water.... More

Did the Upper Dells boat tour on a Saturday afternoon. Boat was full, but not completely sold out. Water was running high in the river with all the previous rain. Great way to spend a couple of hours. Tour guide and crew were great. Scenery is awesome with some geological formations unique to the area. Stand Rock is a Dells... More

Last Friday, I spent less than $24 (thanks to a $5 off coupon) to take a two hour Dells Boat ride on the Wisconsin River. OMG, it was so incredible. In fact, I would do this again over riding on one of the Lake Michigan boat rides from Chicago - not that there's anything wrong with that but the Dells... More

My husband, sister and I took the tour last Sunday, September 25. While the town of Wisconsin Dells is all about food, fun and shopping, this tours highlights the reason this area became a tourist attraction: the highly scenic and inspiring dells of the Wisconsin a River. It was an overcast, drizzly day, but we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 hour... More

Those who have been to the Dells (this was our 1st time) said to be sure to do the boat tour(s). We opted for the Upper Classic and Lower Duck tours. We took the Noon tour and we some of the last to board. It was close to full capacity. The pilot and guide were informative and funny. I would... More
