We only had one day in Geneva and chose this tour. It did not disappoint!!! The most deliciously informational tour of the city. The hot chocolate and chocolatiers were indescribably delicious in their taste. I enjoyed the boat ride on the lake as well. The guide was engaging and fun. Truly a superb experience. My teenage son also greatly enjoyed it and was entertained and intrigued the whole time. 5 stars. Two thumbs up. I’d do it again! Just be sure to get there early to get a parking spot if you are driving your own car. Parking is tricky in the city.
