Motorcoach Tours

55 years of Service to the Motorcoach Industry

We offer a range of options for motorcoach groups, including a 1-hour narrated Sightseeing tour, a 2-hour Birding Adventure, Sunset Cruise and a combination Sightseeing and Step-on tour.

A pontoon boat tour of the Horicon Marsh is one of Wisconsin’s most unique motorcoach-friendly activities. All of our tour boats are senior-friendly and water levels are good all season long. And, while you’re on the boat, mosquitoes are not a problem. You can expect a fun, fascinating and comfortable tour.
