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!

My wife and I was running late due to parking being scarce due to the downtown area being full with activity. The captain and tour guide of the Walworth was excellent friendly professional and humorous. I thank them for there courteousness and help making my wife's birthday weekend special.

Interesting commentary and pleasant crew. No coffee available. Even though it was pouring with rain we stood upstairs in the centre and enjoyed the scenery.

We went on the boat cruise of Lake Geneva as the end event of a wedding weekend. Very nice weather, good tour guides and interesting information. I lived close to Lake Geneva in my youth and never knew some of this history. Worth the money. We forgot to tip the tour speakers as we got off the boat...sorry!

I had never done the full lake tour before this visit. We absolutely loved it. The weather was awesome! The boat was a lovely ride. And the guides were funny, informative, but not annoying as things like this can sometimes be. Took about two hours total, and was worth the extra time.

We took the mailboat cruise.. We were not able to sit on the lower deck we the mail jumpers delivered from, but the boat had camera monitors throughout both levels and we were able to watch each and every delivery. It was interesting watching the girls jump off the moving boat, delivering the mail, and jumping back on before we... More
