The boat tour was interesting but a bit long, around 2 hours. Must do if you want to see good portion of lake and Emerald Bay.
We very much enjoyed the tour on a beautiful, sunny day. The narrative was very interesting, things we would never have known otherwise. The only thing we were disappointed in was that we could not get the buffet lunch that day. I would recommend this tour to everyone.
Beautiful day, beautiful lake and loved hearing about it's history. Enjoyed being on the paddle boat!
It was a boat ride on the lake because my mom wanted to. It was nice. The narrative was good. There could have been more seating on the outside but I can see what could be done was done. A bit difficult for an old lady with a bad knee to get onto the boat fast enough to claim a seat, is all. Still, some young people gave her a seat about half way through the tour so it worked out. The photographers were good - coaxing without being too pushy.
The boarding was well organised.
The views of the lake were lovely.
The boat was not overloaded and there were plenty of seats available.
The whole family enjoyed the trip
We really enjoyed the trip across Lake Tahoe. The information about the lake and it's history was very educational and being able to see the bottom of the lake at the entrance of the bay was beautiful. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area. Thanks for a good time. Dave and Gayl.
Great going over coming back seeing the same thing was a little boring
My only complaint is that too many passengers were allowed on the boat. Other than that the scenery was beautiful, especially around Emerald Bay. Personnel working on the M.S. Dixie II were all very polite and helpful. I would definitely take another cruise.
It was a pleasant tour. Enjoyed cruize ride with drinks. Scenary is very nice and must watch when you are in Lake Tahoe. Thanks
Relaxing. Entertaining with "mark twain". Not overcrowded Very pleasant trip!
Beautiful boat ride. Scenery was fantastic .Thought we booked the ride and a free lunch. We mentioned it to the boss, I can't remember his name, a great guy, and he gave us lunch free. A very enjoyable day. Oh....We thought we left with plenty of time to get there, but it took us about 45 min. just to turn into the parking lot which cost $8 per car. Emerald Bay is a busy place. Take the shuttle or leave extra early.
Quite enjoyable but . . . I thought it was Mark Twain interactive on Saturdays???? Waiters were overwhelmed, but kept their smiles in place. An annoyance was one person who thought he was exempt from the NO smoking policy!
It was a beautiful day. We couldn't hear the speakers so missed out on a lot of the history. Otherwise, it was a nice cruise.
My husband and I fully enoyed our cruise on the M.S. Dixie II. It provided a breathtaking and memorable experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise! Some of us couldn't hear the information over the PA system. My party of four would recommend this cruise to other family and friends.

Very nice and worth doing, but I thought that it could have been more peaceful and relaxing if the "announcer" would have kept quiet for awhile.

The tour was very nice. Plenty of seating and a great way to see Lake Tahoe and Emerald Bay from the water.

Beautiful weather, a little crowded but definitely worth it. Easy to book online.
