Enjoy an alternative sightseeing experience in Geneva, the city hailed as Switzerland’s cultural capital, on a 3.5-hour tour by coach, tram and boat. See the city’s most spectacular attractions from a variety of vantage points and delve into Geneva’s rich history with commentary from a professional guide. Cruise on a coach and see natural landmarks like Lake Geneva and the Geneva Water Fountain; stroll the Old Town and listen to intriguing commentary as you take a tram tour down winding backstreets.
What to Expect
After pickup at a centrally located spot in Geneva, settle into your seat on a coach and gaze at Geneva’s impressive landmarks as you listen to informative commentary from an expert guide. Marvel at the vibrant Geneva Flower Clock, a picturesque dial suspended over beautiful gardens, and capture photographs of the equally impressive Geneva Fountain (Jet d’Eau), a water feature that propels water to a height of 140 meters (459 feet). 

Continue your tour with a tram ride through the ambient tangle of city streets.

Climb aboard a boat for the tour’s dramatic finale, a 50-minute cruise on the shimmering surface of Lake Geneva, widely considered Europe’s most beautiful lake. Absorb sweeping vistas of the city from your idyllic vantage point and then scour the scenery for the snow-capped perimeter of the Alps. 

Return to dry land and bid your guide and group farewell at a central location.

Basic tour, but there are better I'm sure

I believe of all the touristy tours we have done, this was probably the least informative. Perhaps we picked the wrong tour, but were looking for a little more Geneva information and history-other than just driving by some sites. We did 'drive by' the UN,...More

Good basic tour, but consider without the boat tour

This is a good basic introduction to the city of Geneva, takes a little under 2 hours. Our guide was personable and enthusiastic. The second half on a tram through the old city uses pre-recorded narration, a more personal approach would be nicer. I would...More

Relaxing time

I decided to just take an hour to cruise Lake Geneva. It was relaxing. I just wish there were audio commentary during the cruise.
