"We really enjoyed our trip on the Lake Queen. My boys especially liked getting to "drive" the boat. It was a great trip and we will probably do it again."

Early Dinner Cruise
"We were 2 couples celebrating one of our friends 31st Birthdays in Branson. The entire staff greatly exceeded my expectations. Everyone made the birthday girl feel special. The Captain, waiter, photographer and the rest of the staff that I might have left off made all of us feel welcome on the boat. It was a great time and my favorite attaction in Branson, as I express sincere thanks to everyone who made my first trip to Branson Mo a memorable experience. I would by far choose the dinner cruise again when I return to Missouri. If I could have the same staff, I would be even more thrilled! Thank you again for a wonderful time last weekend!"

Interesting and relaxing
"We were blessed to be able to have a visit with friends we hadn't seen in nearly 20 years and chose the Lake Queen for our reunion. It was the best choice we could have made! The staff were all friendly and solicitous but not intrusive. The tour guide called our attention to the local flora and fauna without being overbearing and gave a humorous account of some of the goings on of the locals and not so locals. I'd say this is a great idea to enjoy a getaway and get to spend time with folks you love, yes indeed. Thanks to the efforts of your captain and crew it was a terrific afternoon!"
