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!

We booked the dinner cruise around the lake and it was delightful. We went during the summer and had ample opportunity to enjoy viewing historical homes around the lake. Dinner was very good and the sunset set the seal on a lovely evening. I recommend this tour. There were two large (and loud) groups seated nearby, but we still managed... More

We always take our company on a lake cruise whenever they visit. What a wonderful way to experience Lake Geneva, the history and the scenery! You can choose a hour cruise or longer.

If you like seeing how the other half lives; this is the way to go. Beautiful mansions once owned by famous millionaires. We have been on the cruises many times. The ice cream cruise is great. Nice and peaceful. If you like a little more excitement, try the mail boat. Nothing like watching these college age kids jump from boat... More

We can't agree with you more and thank you. This year, 2015 will be the 99th year of Mail Delivery by boat on Lake Geneva. As you mentioned this is an exciting trip and one that you should not miss as the boat does get the very best, close up views of the beautiful mansions as they deliver the mail. More

I love this boat tour. We sat in the front of the boat and listened to the captain who was in a little pilot house right behind us. We took the boat and Black Point tour which I would recommend. We had lunch on the boat which was a sandwich, chips, and a drink. It was a nice day on... More

The Black Point Mansion Tour is a great way to get a feel of what is was/is like to live in a beautiful 1880's Mansion on the shore of Lake Geneva. This is the only house on the lake that you can visit and it is a very professional tour informing you of what life was like back in the... More

I took a group of 30 senior citizens on the Lake Geneva Cruise October 15 and we had a wonderful time. The on-board commentary was very informative and spoken clearly. After the cruise we went to Sprecher's Restaurant as a part of the contracted package. The food was excellent, generous portions, and because we had to submit our menu selections... More

The 2 hour Lake Geneva boat tour on "Lady of the Lake" was wonderful!!! The weather was perfect on an early fall afternoon and the views of the wonderful homes was spectacular. The narration was clear and full of history of the early development of the lake by influential families from Chicago following the great fire in the late 1800's... More
