My family really enjoyed this tour. The weather was awesome and the story behind the boat and the family operating it was great! Nice little relaxing tour and very informational about the Cass River.

My husband and I both enjoyed the hour long boat tour down the Cass River. The Captain who spoke and told us the history of the boat, the river and the surroundings was very interesting and funny. The boat has restrooms and sells some pop, water, coffee and popcorn, but you are also allowed to bring your own snacks and pop.

It was great to get a truly local perspective while enjoying a beautiful cruise down the river. The staff was fun and friendly. Great value and a great day. I highly recommend the Bavarian Belle as part of the Frankenmuth experience.

Went on an hour river cruise and really enjoyed it. It was relaxing and informative. There were snacks available to buy as well. The best part was that one of the employees got a wheelchair and walked my wife's aunt up the ramp when she didn't think she would make it with her walker.
