Gabriel (I hope I've spelt that correctly?) our guide provided excellent commentary on the bus ride part of our tour and he was very helpful, friendly and knowledge. It was a pleasure to listen to him. We were taken around the town and stopped for a photo opportunity at the Palais des Nations and Broken Chair sculpture. We then went on the road train with audio commentary that again was excellent. Finally we went on the third part of our tour which was a boat trip on Lac Leman to look at the stunning scenery on the shore and in the distance. A fantastic experience well worth the money.

Great tour, unforgettable views and places. Our host Vivi was very nice and attentive to everyone. The tour was well scheduled with enough time to do everything and easy transfers between places. A must do if you’re in Geneva.

I had such a wonderful time and met many great people. Gabriel the tour guide was awesome and attentive.
