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.

My family and I took the 2 hour "Full Lake Tour" on a beautiful September afternoon this past weekend. While we would have loved to have had a view from the top level of the boat (which was open-air) we did not board in time to get seats all together. Therefore we sat at a table on the first level...

Our boat Lady of the Lake was wonderful as were the people who worked on it. Very disappointed in the lack of Original homes on the lake. Way to may tear down and rebuilds for what I was expecting. But if you just want to see beautiful big homes of the Midwest Wealthy then it would not disappoint.

If you are taking any tours in the fall, it pays to get there early so you can sit inside the covered area of the boat. They do sell tickets for both levels. The top level is exposed to the elements which can be COLD.

I arranged for a group of 53 with 30 of them from Eberswalde, Germany (also Melchow!). Since I needed to feed them all, this luncheon cruise filled the bill! Our Tuesday September 16th was blessed with a beautiful sunny day, even though it was about 6 degrees below normal. My friends from Germany don't like A/C so it was perfect,... More

We visited this tour on 09/13/14. It was a sunny and chilly day, perfect for cruise. We all sit in on a plastic chairs so it was`t very comfortable but Captain tell a story about almost every house and that was intereting (but NOT for young childrens). In the ship they proposed few kinds of beer(4$ each), water, some chips.... More

We visited on September 12 2014, and it was 25 degrees below normal :( With that said with a good jacket we were fine. You definitely want to get there early and sit on the RIGHT side of the boat and closer to the front ( the bathrooms are in the rear and are just a little smelly ) The... More

The Captain knew the story behind almost every mansion on the lake. Who designed, built, lived in and sold to.

We took the US Postal Boat Tour on 9/7/14. We booked the tickets over the phone, the staff was very helpful and polite. We boarded the boat as scheduled. The tour is 2.5 hours long and circles Lake Geneva as a 'jumper' gets on and off the boat delivering mail or newspapers to the docks of lake side residences. The... More

Lake Geneva is a great place to visit for the spring, summer and the falls, you must do the boat tours, swim in the lake or rent a boat, walk around the town. Very peaceful place. Very Enjoyable.

Booked a coach tour of the city, taking in European Parliament and the old town which is so pretty and worth going back to for lunch only a 20 min walk from the lake. The cruise was ok.
