Nice Tour

We have been on the Belle a number of times. We always enjoy the tour of the lake. The crew/staff was excellent. The food is an afterthought; lunch was certainly adequate.

I booked the sunset dinner cruise for my husband and I to celebrate our 5th anniversary, and we weren't disappointed! I had baked chicken and he got fried catfish. Both were very delicious. The staff was very friendly. My husband and I have had gastric bypass weight loss surgery, so we can't eat much. When the hostess saw how little... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our riverboat cruise! The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was excellent! The Captains narrative of local facts and culture was interesting and informative, and of course the sunset view was unparalled! We truly enjoyed our ride!

Husband and I went as a last minute decision and we're glad we did. The food was delish and the bar is very reasonably priced. We had chicken and BBQ plate. All the staff and owner will make you feel welcomed. After dinner, the dancing began and we had a full floor. What a great evening!

My family and I booked a cruise on the belle had a great dinner and enjoyed the fireworks from the best seat on the lake. The food and staff was great, we had a great time and will be booking another cruise when we go back. Thanks for a great evening.

This is my second time on the Belle. The staff is great. We always go to the upper deck and decide to opt out of the dinner. The houses are beautiful and the other boaters are friendly. Great attraction for families and couples.

My sister and I went on this tour and and so much fun. We took lots of photos, and even tossed a coin in the lake. Our guide was so funny, she kept laughing because I sat the whole time instead of walking around the boat.

We recently took an afternoon sight-seeing cruise. They also offer luncheon and dinner cruises, but we were more interested simply in the sight-seeing. It bothered me somewhat that I had previously called (a week and a half prior) to make a reservation, and they didn't have me on the list when we arrived. It didn't matter, as they weren't at...
