Wonderful excursion on the lake with a very friendly crew and competent captain. Luckily the weather was good, otherwise there would have been a nice lounge inside where you could have seen the area well. For an even better view 1. Select the upper deck: the upgrade is easy and uncomplicated, even on the ship.

we really enjoyed all the stops on the tour, and the flexibility we had with respect to how long we stayed at each stop. we're on a driving vacation through France and Switzerland, but it was really great to have some else with good knowledge of the area do the driving, especially for these stops.

Great atmosphere, very friendly staff, great route. We recommend.
