Overview

Home to the European headquarters of the United Nations, Geneva is Switzerland's second-most popular city and one of the greenest cities in Europe. Visit Geneva on a bus, go for a ride on a mini-train, and walk around the cobbled streets of the Old Town.

You will be taking a step back in time with Saint Peter’s cathedral, Place Bourg-de-four, original market place, the arsenal and the town hall; lose yourself in the grandeur and beauty of this culturally and influential town.

This sightseeing tour allow you to discover Geneva’s most famous attractions, including the iconic Flower Clock, symbol of the city's watchmakers and love for nature, and the impressive fountain, Jet d’Eau. This is your opportunity to snap some pictures of the magnificent spray from the fountain.

Listen as your guide explains the importance of this city as a diplomatic and financial center, and pass through the district around the UN building.

Great way to see the city, especially the old town. The cruise on the lake at the end was very much worth it. Note that the tour is longer than advertised because the boat crew takes a lunch break just as the trolley segment ends so you have an hour or so to eat lunch yourselves. Also keep in mind that it is an audio tour so be firm with the guide to use the headsets so you have a choice of language otherwise they pick the language of the majority and play it on the speakers. There is a guide accompanying the tour but he answers questions only.

We got to the tour company and found out that the start of our tour would be cancelled and we would have to take a hop-on / hop-off bus to start it. Once done we would take a small train around Old Town - no stops just sit and the train was faster than the voice providing us the information for the sites. That wasn't the worst part when we got dropped off at the dock the boat wasn't there and the train conductor left us there. No one from the tour company was there and most of the people from the tour left. The boat finally did arrive and we spent over an hour in the heat circling in the middle of Lake Geneva with no air. It was miserable. I would not recommend this trip to anyone or even recommend this tour company.

Had a very good city tour. Driver Norman and Guide Gabrielle were very friendly. Gabrielle explained in detail about each landmark. He was patient enough to answer all queries.

Great variety (bus, mini train, and boat ride). We’ll paced, and informative. I would recommend. I was a bit confused about where to pick up the bus. Make sure you head to the Swiss Tours office and they’ll direct you. Your name will be on a manifest and you’ll be checked into the bus and you’re on your way!
