The guide was excellent and conducted the tour in English and French (for French Canadian tourist). He was very informative and humorous, and we learned a lot about the city, history, and various organizations in the city. The first half was a bus and city tour. The second part was a recorded tour on little train that wove through the old town. By the time we walked from the bus across a bridge to the little train, the rain had cleared. Whereas I originally imagined this would be more of a walking tour, it was a relief that we were in a bus during the rain.

I particularly liked the smaller vehicle for the trip. All the stops were well worth visiting. Chocolate factory, cheese favourites, and Gruyere was a wonderful place to visit.

A wonderful tour or different sites throughout Geneva! Good information and a nice way to move quickly around the city.

Being able to see a lot in Geneva with a guide called Gabriel. Good explanation in both English and French language.

It’s a simple tour but covers all important points
