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! « less

Took the 2hour full lake tour. Young guide, Garett was funny and entertaining. Full bar and snacks available. Learned history. Also noticed a nice book in their gift shop on pier that had pictures inside and outside of a lot of the current homes on lake. Must take a boat tour on your visit

I took the Black Point boat tour. You get a lake tour and a house tour. The house is very historical. It was only owned by one family for over 100 years. They left many of their own personal possessions when they gave it to the State of WI. If you like history, it is a great combo tour. It... More

When I was an unwashed, shiftless teen, I was somehow able to land a job in Lake Geneva one summer between my college school terms. Even though the hours were long, the great advantage was access to this beautiful lake, and despite the grueling schedule there always seemed to be just enough time for fun. On a whim one sunny...

We had a great morning boat ride on The Walworth's mail run. U. S. Mail was delivered to many homes on the lake. The deliverer would jump off the front of the boat, stick the mail in the box and jump on the back of the boat, soon to repeat the process. While we passed beautiful historic mansions we were...

I've been to Lake Geneva many times, but had never taken a boat tour before. Yesterday we took the "Full Lake" cruise. It lasted 2 hours, and it was great. Very informative captain, smooth sailing, and a beautiful day all added to the fun. The sound system was great - so many times on tour boats you can hardly hear... More

We took my parents on the 2 hour lake cruise. Great day to be out on the water. Our guide was Lexy and a gentleman I don't recall his name. We sat on the upper deck and had no trouble hearing everything they said. This cruise is well worth the money in my opinion. We stayed at the Lake Geneva... More

Had the great easier of riding on the mailboat tour! Our captain had a great voice and navigated to the various docks to deliver mail with fantastic expertise. The two mail girls would jump off the boat, deliver the mail, and jump back on the back of the boat.....each one of them missed once and ended up soaking wet! It... More
