Description:

For the True Lake Geneva Experience, you have to get on the water!...

For the True Lake Geneva Experience, you have to get on the water! Beautiful estates, mansions and natural scenery that only be viewed from the lake unfold through a descriptive and insightful narrated tour or provide the backdrop for an unforgettable party or wedding celebration. With 8 boats that hold from 2 to 225, Lake Geneva Cruise Line is one of the areas premier attractions - including the World Famous Mailboat Tour. As seen on the Travel Channel, CBS News, and the Today Show; it is the only marine mail delivery of its type in the nation as the mailperson leaps onto the pier, places the mail in the mailbox and jumps back aboard the boat. The catch is - THE BOAT NEVER STOPS MOVING!

Was a very good experience. My husband and I specifically did the Black Point Estate Cruise, which does use one of the cruise lines smaller boats and is therefore not as accommodating as some of the others in their fleet. There are many stairs that are involved once you get to the black point estate, but this is well communicated... More

Price was a bit high at $29.00 per person but we really enjoyed our time. Cost varies on in and out of season along with week day vs weekend. There was an upper and lower deck. Everyone who greeted us was very friendly. It was cool out but sun was shinning. The Geneva Lake Bay Tour was an hour cruise.... More

Thank you for the feedback. We may make that an occasional tour throughout the season. Of course we would have to change the tour name, but the material would be the same basic format. We look forward to your next visit to Lake Geneva. More

I have visited Lake Geneva before but never took Lake tour. Since today was overcast, I decided on the tour. The boat crew were very nice. Since the trees were still bare from winter, you could see all the mansions easily. If it were summer the views would be obstructed by the trees. I read other reviews and satin right... More

“Expensive Disappointment” 1 of 5 bubblesPending review I saw an ad and thought what fun! Not. The evening started with what was supposed to be viewing the Festival of Trees and viewing wooden boats. No wooden boats and the trees were there only to display raffle items which they immediately tried selling tickets for. When we boarded the boat (which... More

I am sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience. We worked very hard to make our first season an enjoyable one. We had over 6000 passengers join us during our inaugural season, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. It is true that the Festival of Trees is a display of a dozen trees decorated with and surrounded by... More
