Full description
This tour will give you the chance to enjoy the beauty of the Swiss Riviera at Lake Geneva (or Leman, as it is also known), while giving you the option to tailor the trip to your needs and interests.  Starting from Geneva, you will board a comfortable coach and drive through the Vaud countryside, passing Lausanne and stopping at Lavaux, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its exquisite wine production. During the spring and summer months, you will also have the chance to visit a vineyard there, where local wine will be served.  Leaving Lavaux, the next stop will be Vevey. Take an overall tour of the city, the Nestlé headquarters, the covered market, and have some free time for lunch. This is also where you will have the option to discover Chapin’s World — a site dedicated to Charlie Chaplin, the artist and man. Go on an extraordinary adventure across time and through the magical world of cinema. Prepare to be moved by one of the most surprising artists of the 20th century through the sets of his greatest films at a Hollywood-style studio. If you decide to add the option of a lake cruise to your tour, after your time in Vevey, you will be boarding an old steamer boat and embark on a journey that will lead you right to the Castle of Chillon. Located on the bank of Lake Geneva, the castle is one of the most visited historic places in Switzerland dating back to the 11th-century.  If you decided on the option that includes the castle, you will have a guided tour through the building, and in case you did not choose the cruise option, you will be taken to the castle directly by bus.  Afterwards, your last stop will be in Montreux, a glamorous tourist resort. Feel the atmosphere of all the great artists who have visited this place such as Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, BB King, and Ray Charles. Wander through the streets full of fancy shops and landmarks of the famous jazz festival.

It would have been perfect if the weather wasn't that bad

A very nice day tour. So many things to see. A really full day. Well organized. Our guide Maggie was superb!!!! She gave us the right amount of details not too little not too much and she was helpful and pleasant all time. Besides the weather (rainy windy and even stormy occasionally) it was a perfect day! I strongly recommend

nice

It was a very nice, organized trips But I have few comments: 1- it is not enough to tell us where should we meet in the bus, definitely we'll forget especially if the tour guide is away as in Chamonix trip, iternity was not clear & busy, meeting points & time must be separate from the busy iternity. And as we all have smart phones, we must have this location address on google maps, so we won't be lost or late 2- all the group must have the leader or at least the driver number, so we can communicate with them especially in a trip with multi destination as Lausanne-montraux 3- if possible we can have a group for the trip day on whatsapp or any similar program, so the leader send a reminder at the proper time for every body Thanks alot
