My wife & I took our 2 young grandsons for a cruise. The boys enjoyed it. They got to go up to the bridge and "steer" the boat for a short while. It was very crowded and luckily we were among the first to board. If not we would not have found a place to sit. A lot of people... More

It was a cattle call! We booked a month in advance and were not told it was standing room only! Crew were unprofessional and untrained and we had to stand the whole trip. They completely overbooked and was told corporate was to blame. Very rude captain!

This is good cruise tour for all ages of people. I visited with my family with 2 young kids. They enjoyed a lot, very nice scenic views of emerald bay and south Lake Tahoe. Only bad thing is, you should catch the table on first and second floor other wise full 2:30 mins you have stand during tour. So be... More

I grew up going to Tahoe but this was the first time on the Queen. It is a little pricey, but very beautiful out on the lake. The captain was very informative and pointed out many things for us to see. I loved it!

I've been coming to Tahoe, on and off, for over 40 years. We came with friends this past weekend and tried the Tahoe Queen. It was very nice. It was cold outside so we spent most of our time inside. The windows were clean so you could see everything. It a relaxing 2 1/2 hour trip across the Lake to... More

This dinner cruise was super fun. Unfortunately, it was pitch black and too dark to see a whole lot, but the captain shone a huge spot light on Emerald Isle and various parts of Emerald Bay and Vikingsholm. The band, the Steve Walker Band, was very entertaining. They play great music and have a pretty big repertoire, available for requests... More

This boat excursion was beautiful! The outside seating was fabulous, as were the views of Beautiful Lake Tahoe. We took this excursion in July. the weather was perfect. the staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I would recommend this trip to anyone, who would enjoy a lazy excursion aboard the vessel Tahoe Queen.

Lovely way to spend an afternoon and really get to see the colors of the Lake. A bit pricy, but spectacular colors.

Lake Tahoe is big &, for most of the crossing, the lake sides are so far away that the cruise is rather boring. Emerald Bay on the other side is pleasant & the island with the bonsai tree is rather remarkable. The commentator said it was one of the most beautiful places in the world. He can't be very well...

We spent a very chilly Saturday evening aboard the Tahoe Queen for the dinner cruise. It was our first time on this boat although many years ago we spent New Year's Eve on it's sister ship the MS Dixie. The Tahoe Queen is a nicely renovated paddle wheeler and cruises to one of the most beautiful places in the world,... More
