I took this tour day after we arrived in Geneva. The tour lasted 3 hours and was by bus and small train .
We visited most important places with commentary by our tour guide he was excellent.
you then ride on a small 3 carriage train which takes you round old town Geneva with good commentary from speakers in each carriage. The final part you board a boat which makes its way up lake Geneva for 20 minutes then back to the opposite bank from where you started.
You can then easily walk back to city centre or get one of the many trams or buses which are all free for tourists staying in hotels. Excellent tour.

Absolutely wonderful tour of the city, and the tour guide was excellent with English, He was animated and gave us great information regarding many points of interest during the tour. The train ride through 'Old Town' Geneva was fun, but the lake cruise was really the best. Thanks much for a grand experience!
