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 purchased the Passport which gives you unlimited boat rides through the season. Some of the rides have an upcharge (lunch, dinner cruises). The ice cream social tour offers three flavors of sundaes and is well worth the money.

This cruise line has several different options to tour the lake - sunset cruise, mail delivery route, ice cream cruise, short and long narrated cruises, etc. We chose the one-hour cruise and were very pleased with the bubbly tour guides who narrated throughout the tour with interesting history, stories, and humor.

This Lake Geneva boat tour was fun even in the rain. We took the Expanded Bay 1.5 hour tour and learned all sorts of interesting tidbits and history as we peered at one amazing mansion after the next. Garrett, our tour guide, was humorous and quizzed us on our listening and trivia skills for free drinks. Price was right. We... More

We've done the full cruise twice and haven't been disappointed! The first time we did it during the week with the mail delivery. How cool to have you mail delivered by boat. The high school age kids that jump on and off the boat to deliver the mail are energetic and fun. And the commentary about all the summer mansions... More

We opted for the Black Point cruise. Lou is a personable guy as captain. They drop you off to visit the Seipp summer home, which was interesting. Our guide Frank, is very knowledgeable and a nice guy. A chance to visit the expensive homes along the lakeshore. Seipp, Crane and Wrigley to name a few. This cruise is 3 and... More

Very informative and a good price. Lots of expensive housing and history to see by boat. The guides knew area and could answer any all questions.

This was such a nice relaxing boat tour. The Tour Guise explained about who lived in the houses and the history of the houses, very interesting. The only thing is that it is rather expensive for the One Hour Tour.... $24 per Adult..... with tax it was over $50.

We took the Black Point tour. Staff friendly. Cruise was easy. Narration of tour could use the pier markers more to help people identify the homes they are talking about. 2-stall bathrooms on the ship we were on. Well-cared for boats. Despite a grey and drizzly day, we had a nice time.

Once again the LGCL Crew went above and beyond to make sure our guests had a wonderful Geneva Lake experience. Despite a very stormy day and night, we had 2 hours of relaxing business networking aboard the Duchess while we enjoyed beautiful views and first-class service. Our guests were impressed and many valuable connections were made. You can't go wrong... More

Our captain had so many stories about the homes we were seeing you thought you were getting some inside scoops. You have to take one of the tours. Our tour was on one of the old steamers. There was a bar and snacks. The boat did lose steam so we drifted awhile. The staff was wonderful. Drinks were on the... More
