Very poor instructions on where the Geneva bus station is, there is no address. Once you arrive there is also no information as to what the name of the bus is to board. When calling the trip advisor for it , all she said was “you were supposed to look for the Gruyeres bus and board it” I responded there was no instructions , nor any communication with the tour guide. The bus ended up leaving us behind. I asked for a refund as there was poor communication and she said no and there was nothing else said. Would not recommend, very poor customer service. Attached is a photo of all the directions given at time of booking.

I definitely recommend this trip for any newcomers to Switzerland! The tour guide was very friendly, and the tour bus was very nice.

Babis was an excellent bus driver and tour guide, very knowledgeable, very kind, very personable, all you could ask for really… The tour itself was great, the region was magnificent, amazing scenery, and more wine, cheese, and chocolate than any reasonable human being needs.

Our driver was informative and entertaining. He kept us advised of the highlights and some things that seemed trivial but were very interesting with some historical facts to back them up.

Amazing time exploring a medieval village followed by scrumptious cheese and chocolate and fabulous views from Mt. Moleson. Our tour was changed due to road closures by the Tour de France but it ended up being better than the original tour. The views from the top of Mt. Moleson were breathtaking. Our guide, Babis, was informative, friendly, and a joy to get to know. We truly had a fabulous day.
