Hop aboard the Lake Geneva cruise line, and you will be treated to a leisurely boat ride around Geneva Lake, where people swim, fish, and take their boats out. Pointed out to you will be many estates owned by some famous names, and some estates have a really fascinating story that the friendly boat guide will pass on to you... More

Nice boats and the staff make the trip fun and interesting. We did the Blackpoint tour that included the house tour but the captain also narrates facts about the lake and the history of the mansions around the lake ,past and present.

I went on the Dixieland Jazz Dinner Cruise as part of a bachelorette party this past weekend, and it was a bit of a mixed experience. The good: The boat itself is nice, the travel smooth (I'm prone to seasickness and didn't feel it all), the tour guide seemed knowledgeable (when I could hear him--my group was pretty noisy) and...

The boat was packed up top but we came at the last minute so that is to be expected. The tour was great but being on top would have been cooler AND cooler. It was a little warm down below. 2 hr r8de is a bit long and I would try the 1 hour ride first.

Lake Geneva is only 60 minutes from Chicago's northwest 'burbs so we took a day trip that included a nice boat ride around the lake. A great young Wisconsin girl (all of 17?) had her spiel down and shared with the boat all about the large homes and history of Lake Geneva. It is a beautiful tour. They have short... More

We went on the 2 hour afternoon cruise in June. The homes are beautiful and most of them are just vacation homes. We went on a week day so there weren't any crowds. I've heard the weekends are quite busy. We went around the entire lake. It started to get a little cold on the upper deck so we moved... More

We took the Lake Geneva Mail Boat Tour. This 2.5 hour tour circles the whole lake showing all of the beautiful homes and mansions. This boat delivers the mail and newspapers daily, without stopping! The delivery person jumps off the boat, delivers and picks up mail, then jumps back onto the side of the boat while it keeps moving. The... More

My husband booked a sundown cruise for us and another couple for my birthday. We have been on every cruise offered several times in the past 3 years. The sights and sounds around the lake are incredible. The tours are relaxing and the staff is friendly. Bring your cameras, you can take as many pictures as you want. You can... More

Took the whole lake tour. It was a very nice cruise. Got to see all of the scenery around the lake. The tour guides were very informative, and shared much about the lake, its history and its residents. Highly recommend!

For an informative entertaining morning cruise, try the Mail Boat Jumper cruise. Look it up. Buy tickets ahead of time and arrive early.
