Lake Geneva was a beautiful sight. On a hot summers day renting a boat & setting sail on the Wisconsin waters was a magnificent experience. Only roughly an hours drive from Chicago this place is well worth a visit. On a Saturday night the town is truly lively & the friendliness of the Geneva locals add to the experience. I'd... More

Took the lake tour with Geneva Lake Cruise line. It takes about an hour and a half and takes you up one side of the lake, crosses halfway up, and returns down the other side. The guide/Captain is very informative and gives a continuous history of all the real estate around the lake. A really enjoyable afternoon trip.

I have dove Geneva Lake about 12 times and it is a very nice clean lake. Always a good time. Being a big lake with a lot of big boats it does seem as though they really don't pay attention to the boating laws. you must really watch out for yourself. I always do look forward to going back.

Very informative boat trip around the perimeter of Lake Geneva with colorful trees and estate homes. Very interesting to learn the history behind these lovely homes.

Great place to chillout for a cruise or take a wander round the many shops and restaurants. If you're nearby, go spend a day there and soak up the architecture and sunshine. Plenty of water activities to do too although we just did a cruise and some shopping.

Went on this tour and the Captain of the boat we were on was quite informative. The tour we took went about halfway around the lake with a stopover to the Black Pointe Estate. There are many mansions along this lake. Our Captain told us about several of them and who owned them. He knew a lot about the lake... More

The "ice cream social" boat tour is very nice. If people talk too loud it is hard to hear the loudspeaker. It was a leisurely trip around half the lake where we saw homes and heard history of the area. There are large tables where you can take a lunch and plenty of seats to be comfortable
