We wanted to quickly see which sights there are outside of the old town that are otherwise difficult to get to on foot. The tour was excellent for that. However, anyone who expects interesting stories and stories will be disappointed. Unfortunately, the guide didn't know more about the places than we did. If that had been my criterion, it would only have been one star.

Excellent .... we met lausanne ... vevey and montreaux ... with a personalized guide .... called Zsolt ... very attentive ... he chose the best places and very professional

Alexandra gave us an important part of Geneva's history in a very lively and good way in a short time - great!

The bike tour was varied and gave us a good first impression of the city.

Great tour, really enjoyed it even though the weather wasn’t suitable.
