This wonderful intimate older vessel has an interesting history which the crew is delighted to share with you. The views of the mountains are spectacular, and cruising on beautiful Lake Tahoe is a real treat, especially the Sunset Cruise. The appetizers were quite good for serving a large number of people and there was no shortage of the house wine... More

Don't spend your money here ... It was extremely difficult to find this place, no signage, area around dock in disrepair, and the folks who run it are rude and defensive! A huge hassle all around. The food as advertised was awful, the music was too loud, the "complimentary" champagne was a very cheap quality, and the owners "customer service"... More

Hi Karen! Sorry to hear you had difficulty finding Round Hill Pines, it can be a little tricky in the shoulder season. The dock at RHP is one of the nicest in Tahoe, and we are concerned about that you observed areas while boarding that were in "disrepair". We would love to discuss your experience further and escalate your feedback... More

My boyfriend booked us a Sunset Champagne Cruise since I had never been out on the lake. It was such a fun and beautiful evening. The lake was smooth and it was warm with the sun still out. We met some really nice and interesting people, enjoyed the entire cruise up on the top deck so we could see all... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our cruise across the lake on this wonderful old yacht. The drinks were kind of expensive but good. The meal was good. The staff was very friendly. It was a nice way to spend three hours.

We wanted to get out on the lake but did not want to go on the big boats so chose this tour based on it being highly rated. We did not want food etc so chose the happy hour trip. This is 90 mins and we would have preferred a little longer but the only other options involved dinner and... More

We chose a mid-day lunch cruise - 3 hours long - which included a visit to Emerald Bay. The boat was older but charming and comfortable. Lunch was BBQ and was very good. We chose this boat because it was a little smaller than others. The staff were extremely nice and cooked a great lunch. The views were wonderful of... More

A beautiful sunset cruise on the Safari Rose over to Emerald Bay was just magical. The dinner was good - not gourmet but hey we're on a boat! Good bar package as well. The boat is very nice and there was plenty of space for all of our guests (this was a private charter) to spread out. We had about... More

We've been talking about going out on one of the cruise boats in Tahoe for some time and we recently had a weekend booked at Nevada beach. I searched for Tahoe cruises and found the Safari Rose offered several choices on a smaller, more intimate boat. The sunset cruise was perfect, the length, the food, the drinks and the number...

My wife and I recently went on the 2-hour sunset cruise and thoroughly enjoyed it.Safari Rose is a clean, well-kept, and well-furnished boat. Free wine, beer, and champagne -- and it wasn't bad! Hor d'Oevres were decent -- with lots of fresh veggies and fruit for vegetarians. Beautiful scenery. Good staff. Prompt and courteous service. Shuttle will pick you up... More
