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!

If you'd like to understand the history of the area, see many of the more glamorous and historical homes on the lake from an intimate perspective, and enjoy a pleasant cruise of Geneva Lake, the Mailboat tour will deliver the goods.

On our recent getaway to Lake Geneva, one thing my lovely wife and I made certain to do is take one of the boat cruises. We wanted to see all of the beautiful homes on the shoreline, so we took the two hour ride. We were lucky enough to be fairly close to the start of the boarding line, so... More

We were on the Grand Belle for a delicious lunch and tour. We were cruising around the edge of the lake so as to view the grand homes on the lakefront. The boat has viewing from inside and outside. The noise level of those talking really carries and the captain had to ask passengers to be quieter. Otherwise it was... More

My family and I just returned from a three day weekend in Lake Geneva and we decided to wrap up our weekend with the Mailboat cruise tour. Apparently people line up hours in advance of this tour. We bought tickets the day before and showed up about 30 minutes prior to departure. Our kids are ages 3 and 6 and... More

Fun ride. Seating is mostly inside. Guided most of the time. Shorter tour is good for the little ones. Ice cream was yummy. The captain let my boys steer the boat and was great with them. Good for all ages. Save time to spend in Downtown Lake Geneva even if it's just to walk around. Lots of cute shops and... More

in 1999 I had ridden a circle tour of the lake, with friends and really enjoyed it. we had been too late for the mail boat, but I finally got back to the lake and rode the mail boat. very interesting trip, with views of mansions and a very complete narrative. didn't hurt that there was a pretty little girl...

I did the Sundowner cruise around the the lake. It is about an hour and left at 6:15. The captain and crew member gave a good history and answered any questions. Very enjoyable. There are many other choices to fit your schedule. Thère are drinks both alcohol and non alcohol available for purchase.

As we passed many of the mansions we were given a brief history of the properties which was very interesting, All the boat personnel were very friendly and made the trip... More

We held our class reunion here, twenty eight including spouses, food average, presentation good. Mixed drinks pricy. Service very slow. The air conditioning on lower level not good, of course this is where we were seated. Since we didn't use the entire area they filled it with another group, therefore over taxing cooling system. Upper level extremely cooler...Narrator and ride... More

What a fabulous way too see all the beautiful lake homes. Great narration. Get an extra thrill watching mail be delivered by boat.
