We took the boat from the Riviera Dock to Black Point Estate. The boat ride was poor as they were training a new guide who read from a script and stumbled over and mispronounced most of the words. At the estate, docents monitor your every...More

Tickets about $35. They do provide a military discount. Purchase tickets online or at the dock in Lake Geneva.
Is there only one tour for this establishment? The one where you leave the Rivera and travel to the estate by boat, I have a gift certificate that is valid for a Black Point Estate tour for 4, This will include all of this right??

Can you give me information on how you can drive there. I have two people in my group who could not make the steps. Do you have to buy tickets in advance?

You can purchase on sight. If a weekend I would purchase in advance. Lots of stairs. You need good legs.
