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!

Best way to view the historical homes on the lake while enjoying an entertaining boat ride. The captains are experts at story telling while maneuvering around Geneva Lake. Don't miss this special opportunity when visiting Lake Geneva.

My husband and I took the full lake tour in October on the Walworth. The fall colors were amazing on the lake, and the tour was full of lots of interesting information. It was both a relaxing and informative tour. I loved seeing all the gorgeous mansions on the lake!

Took the 2 hour lake cruise on the Walworth. The weather wasn't great but the trip was fun with Captain Garrett and Rita. Got a lot of great history on the properties around the lake and it was truly beautiful.

Much better than expected! Thought a lake tour might be hokey, but it was informative and interesting. Very knowledgeable captain with a pleasant personality. Maybe a little pricey, but I don't know how much gas it takes to run the boat. I would recommend it to others.

It is a slow trip around Lake Geneva. Good way to spend a couple of hours some afternoon. Our guide was very knowledgeable and at times had a funny story to tell. You sit in loose plastic lawn chairs, not all that comfortable for a two hour ride. On busy days I suggest you make a reservation early. They do... More

Looking for a great way to see some fall colors come aboard the Lake Geneva Cruise line. With your children the ice cream social is a super treat to have while looking at the senery and hearing the history of the lake houses.

This is a condensed version of the longer more expensive lake tour. Yes it has a ice cream sundae, basic but a nice treat. Info is similar to the lake tour, but a shorter and cheaper version. Tuesday night is half price for some reason...which is a bonus
