Took the cruise on the Otsego Lake on the Glimmerglass Queen. This is one of the most beautiful tour boasts I have ever been on, it is immaculately kept and definitely has the right name. The commentary about the lake and its legends are very...More

The trip lasts about an hour and is very relaxing. The boat is in extremely good condition, very clean and well cared for. You can stand outside (on the top deck) or sit inside on chairs with tables. You can also go upstairs or downstairs...More

Beware - you need cash to ride. You can't go to Cooperstown and not marvel at the perfect lake. It is simply gorgeous. This boat is your simple solution... and its only an hour tour. You get some history, but really it's about the views....More

The main area was only opened on the ends of the boat and was very hot. They really need to invest in additional fans to cool the room. All the glass heats up the area very quickly! Recorded tour was lame. I would not recommend...More

We went with patches of rain and have hundreds of beautiful pictures of the lake and the surrounding bluffs. Great way to see the lake and the scenery around it!

Dear GG Boat tours, We stopped by two years ago while staying at the Lake Front Hotel. Someone was having a baby and so we didn't get the chance to ride. Hope the skipper will be available between July 29 and August 5th this year as we look forward to our return. Love the area. Cliff
