The experienced tour guide provides a lively narrative during both the down river trip to the castle and return trip back to Alexandria Bay directing your attention to points of interest and sharing historic, environmental and seaway facts. At the castle, trained guides will greet us and provide a one-hour walking tour. Lunch will be on your own today. On Heart Island you will have a self-guided tour of Boldt Castle. This 129 room replica of a Rhineland castle was built over the course of four years at the turn of the century by an entrepreneur George Boldt for his wife as a “summer home”. Don’t miss the Playhouse, Dove Cote, Gazebo, Power House or the lovely gardens. You will be able to return at your leisure to Alexandria Bay via the Uncle Sam shuttle that runs every half hour.
