A very lovely easy day trip from Geneva - nicely done , very comfortable bus transportation, while a wonderful friendly , informative pleasant guide ( Zara ) The tour was simple , easy and just the right amount of time for someone like myself that doesn’t like feeling trapped in an all day experience. Highly recommended, as an alternative for a nice early afternoon adventure!

It’s a beautiful place even in the rain, but is very touristy and busy after midday. The Cathedral is beautiful and, if you’re staying in the area, hosts some great concerts.

such a beautiful little town. Like you're in a fairytale of sorts. The guide gave us free time which allowed for a light brunch & visit to some bakeries. We were told which restaurants were tourist traps and which ones were honest which was wonderful. He took us to the important places to see and gave us free time which we appreciated. There really isn't much to see as far as monuments go, but just sitting by the water in this quaint little storybook town was enough to fulfill me. It is an absolutely must see for serene and peaceful views.

Loved the town so beautiful and the food was very good. Trip was great and our guide and driver were also fabulous

The town is nice and can be easily seen in half a day. Recommend arriving early as it gets crowded. Although in Switzerland is easy to find a toilet, if needed, that is not the case here unless you eat at a restaurant. The 3 public restrooms they have are in poor state of cleanliness
