Took the 1/2 hour special on memorial day. Boat was in excellent shape, crew was very friendly and answered questions. Tho the music a bit to loud, it was a pleasurable cruise. Thanks to the crew for even taking our picture.

Glad you enjoyed it! Duly noted for the music - were you on the upper deck or lower deck? Hope to see you again sometime!

Went on the Appleton tour on the Fox River. Staff was friendly. A little too crowded for comfort on the boat. A little pricey in my opinion as the scenery was just mediocre. We did get to see a bald Eagle and a huge family of geese with babies. Alcohol, water, snacks are served at a reasonable price.

We were glad to have you on the boat! Thanks for sharing your thoughts - it should be less crowded as the season continues. Your comment on pricing is well noted and will be discussed. I’m glad you got to see a bald eagle and I hope to see you again!

River Tyme hosted our company for a Margarita Monday tour up the Fox River. We had a fantastic time! The staff was terrific - friendly, knowledgeable, and provided exceptional customer service. I would recommend to any company (or individual/group for that matter) as a great way to get out of the office and have some fun together. The feedback from everyone who could attend was very positive. Thank you!

Thank You for joining us - and in October! We were very happy to have you onboard and to serve you! Having your small group join in on a public tour was a great way to have the experience and bonding time and stay within budget! Hope to see you again!

We did a private party tour on October 6th 2017 for our son and daughter in law's Wedding Rehearsal Dinner. 45+ friends and family all had an amazing time.
The entire staff from Fox River Tours were great! They did so much to make our event wonderful. The river is very scenic and views from the boat were great on both the protected lower level and open upper deck. Highly recommended!

We heard of the Fox River Tours on our Wis Public Radio and were intrigued that such a cruise was available at such a reasonable price and with practical time scheduling. I had mistakenly made reservation for the 5:30PM tour. When I called to correct the reservation to the 11AM time slot for the same day, the owner was very accommodating and simply said to arrive early for 11AM time and all would be taken care of by the crew. They were courteous in handling the situation. We sat in the upper deck the whole time. It was sunny but chilly. Dave spent half the time of the tour with us answering our questions of the river and providing interesting insights about the waterway. I was impressed that there is an easy way for people in wheelchairs to participate in the tour and enjoy it comfortably getting on and off the boat and seating in the lower level. Overall we were very happy and enjoyed the trip immensely. It was worth the time spent and wish it could have been more. We did not use the bar, but we were refreshed by the river itself. We look forward to the opening of the Appleton tours and will definitely be back to ride again. It was a wonderful way to spend my birthday!

Thank You for your great review and most of all for joining us on River Tyme! We were happy to be a small part of your birthday! And thank you for mentioning the new boat! We are working to get Coast Guard certification for our second boat, which will go in the water in Appleton this coming spring!!
