I wrote a review in September of 2016 that gave a poor rating for this cruise. When they read by review, they phoned me and were very accommodating and sorry for how bad our experience was. They immediately refunded our fares for two and extended a complimentary cruise for my husband and I should we return. Overall, I would say... More

It was very much worth it and the scenic view was amazingly mesmerizing. The captain of the cruise said I would be the first passenger from Burma on board and so I was kind of secretly honoured haha. I highly recommend tourists or friends to take this cruise if they ever decide to visit Lake Tahoe.

Tahoe Cruises offers a great cruising experience for a good price. The Safari Rose is a beautiful old cruise. Lots of character. You can tell the owners really take pride in their boat. We enjoyed this relaxing cruise with friends around the lake while seeing beautiful scenery, eating great appetizers and drinking good drinks. The staff is fun and friendly... More

My husband and I visited Southlake Tahoe for our anniversary. We did not make any previous arrangements but knew we wanted to find our way on some boat tour. We originally were interested in riding the paddleboat but it was not running the weekend we were there. The concierge at our hotel recommended we book the Safari Rose and we... More

I wanted to go out on the lake and did not want to do it on a bigger boat. So, we booked a tour on the Safari Rose. I think this worked out well because in mid-September on a somewhat windy day, this trip was only about half booked so the boat wasn't crowded. We followed a handicapped woman onto... More

Took the sunset cruise and had a great time socializing with the other guests. Appetizers were good - fruit, veggies, chicken kabobs, kielbasa kabobs, chips with guacamole and some deli meat roll-ups. The champagne (Andre), wine and beer was nice to have included and unlimited. The staff brought bottles around to fill up your cup or they had a bar... More

The cruise on the Safari Rose was a pleasant and relaxing experience. The ship was not that large and were told it’s interesting history at the beginning of the cruise. There was minimal guide information during the cruise across the lake which allowed us to relax with a drink and enjoy the views.The crew was very pleasant. We enjoyed a... More
