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

This was our second cruise on the Grand Belle of Geneva. The largest and most spacious of the cruise line's fleet, she is well appointed and immaculately clean. The personable captain, aside from being a skilled pilot, delivered a highly polished narrative focusing on the history of the lake and the adjacent residences and resorts. Later, he greeted passengers and... More

We take one of their boat tours every time that we visit Lake Geneva. My husband asked me if I was getting bored with doing taking these tours. I told him not at all. We always have a different captain and tour guide that tells you about the lake and the history behind all the mansions and homes, the lake... More

We recently took the luncheon cruise on Lake Geneva and enjoyed the entire experience. The cost was $44.00 each for lunch and a 2 hour plus cruise on the lake. Since this was a weekday in early fall, the boat was not full and we were able to have a table to ourselves. A plate of fruit and veggies was... More

My wife and I enjoyed the hour long ice cream social tour of Lake Geneva. The crew was friendly and prompt with service and the captain was informative and well spoken. While the use of the word "modest" may have been a bit over played, the humor was appreciated and my wife was so busy taking pictures that she barely... More

The Ice Cream Social Tour has been a favorite of many since 1987. It is a great family experience and you get the same tour of the beautiful historic mansions that we provide on all of our tours Harold Friestad General Manager Lake Geneva Cruise Line More

Went with friends on the Luncheon Cruise (Saturday) boat cruise was wonderful but forget the lunch! Potaoes were out of a can, chicken was dry, not fresh vegetables ( frozen). Take the tour without lunch.

Took this tour with friends and enjoyed everything about it! The boat was well kept with extremely friendly staff. A bar was on board serving excellent bloody marys and other drinks.

The beautiful, well cared for estates and their storied history are a big part of what makes a tour on Geneva Lake and experience you will long remember. I started working for the cruise line 53 years ago and have managed it since 1968 and there is not a day that goes by that I don't enjoy the lake as... More
