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!

Everyone needs to do this at least once at Lake Geneva. You learn a lot about the area and the history of Lake Geneva. If it is a nice day, you can't beat it

Took the Black Point Mansion Tour. Great views of the mansions on the lake and a detailed tour of Black Point Estate. The history of the wealthy Chicago families is fascinating. The skipper guide was great.

Four friends and I booked the full lake tour online. No issues with that. They said the boat would start loading 15 minutes before the cruise started. We arrived 15 minutes early and there were several people already on the boat. We had never been on this sort of cruise before so we just chose seats so we could all... More

We took the 1 hour ride as our 7 yr old gets bored easily. Got to see some of the elite folks homes which were built in 1900's. Some fantastic insight to some of the owners. The boat was small and had plastic chairs that are free moving. The captain was reading out from a prepared folder. It was thoroughly... More

Took the 1 hour tour. Not too short not too long. It was fun and informative. Loved seeing the mansions and hearing the history. Most of them with Chicago roots and ties.

I have taken many of the boat cruises--Ice Cream Sundae, Full Lake, Mail Boat, Black Point Estate. All are handled professionally and with humor besides. Any of these cruises are a beautiful way to see Geneva Lake and learn about the history of the families who built the magnificent homes surrounding the lake. Cruise times and cost are online where...

We really enjoy the cruise along the Geneva Lake. We took the one that stopped at Black Pointe, the house tour was great, and learning about the other homes along the tour was wonderful too. We also took the boat tour on another day with the mail jumpers, that was great too. I recommend it to everyone.
