This event was NOT as advertised. We were to travel from Lausanne to Vevey for 30 minutes, followed by a panoramic trolley sightseeing tour in Lavaux ending with the afternoon wandering Montreux. INSTEAD we traveled directly to Montreux where we were told that we would be spending 5 hours and would be picked up by another tour bus which would take us to the Lavaux area. We didn't mind seeing Montreux first and very much enjoyed the time we spent in Montreux; it is as beautiful as everyone says, but we NEVER got to see Vevey. Further we DID NOT get a trolley tour and were just driven by coach through Vavux with a stop in a small parkette which was nestled in the vineyards for a glass of wine. We could have easily taken transit from Lausanne to Montreux and seen the same sites by coach as we would by train and avoided the cost of this tour. VERY DISAPPOINTED in the false advertising.
