This tour we did on the first day we landed in the airport, our Thanksgiving morning 2012. Our hotel was not far from the meeting place, perfect. Our guide was very knowledgeable. WE had no recollection of the fact that there would be so many world-relevant organizations headquarters to see, and we wouldn't have gone up north of our hotel to see them had we not been on this tour. The cute little train which took us around the Old Town was a perfectly intimate way to see it (the first time). They really got quite a lot in in such a short time. I can't say enough about this tour. Highly recommend.
The City tour was a great way to see and learn about the major world organizations based in Geneva. The mini train into Old Town worked well to give us an overview of what we wanted to return to. I would have liked to be able to depart the tour in Old Town rather than go back down the hill to the fountain and then back to the bus station. Good value if you take it upon arriving in the city.
This was a good tour. The tour guide was very good and the old town is a very nice walk. This really improved our opinion of Geneva.
This was a lovely trip , well organised, right on time, confortable, the whole trip covered the city, old town and the lake cruise. we had two kids , was very educative , accomodate the children well.the sits enable us to see everything. to sum it up Geneva city tour and boat cruise do a splended job, with passion and quality, keep up the god work. will use your company for future travels.

The first part round the international buildings was a waste of time, plain buildings which will be filled with far more people than are really needed. The "Old Town" was wonderful, and the commentary good.
It is a good trip. 2 things were not so perfect:
1. The walking was limited to 5 min visit of a church; not really a walk in the old town
The group was too big: The guide had a difficult job to talk to 50 people in "Schloss Schönbrunn"
Neverthe less I liked the trip: well english speakimg guide, good organisation, nice overview
Very nice day , enjoyed the bus tour. Our guide provided a lot of interesting information about Geneva. Our small train ride through old town Geneva was very overcrowded and not all that interesting. the boat ride was super enjoyable!
It was very interesting to see the HQ of so many world organisations; we would not have been able to do this on foot. As far as the history of the old town goes I would have liked more stories of the famous individuals involved in founding the city, and more information about the city's main industried today. The commentary was lacking depth and warmth. In the end we didn't feel connected to Geneva.
I am not fully satisfied with the tour. I was a customer of Viator for several tours in the past, however, this time I am quite disappointed. (1) In the catalog, it says "dig even deeper into the Old Town with your guide on a walking tour" - There was no walking tour at all. (2) The Guide was just saying her piece and no interaction with the tourists. The only thing I like is the mini-train tour & the 5 minute bus stop in front of United Nations to take a picture at least. I hope they will improve next time and provide value for money to customers. Thanks.
The city tour via bus covered a lot of important landmarks. Next, the city walking tour was actually conducted in a little train that travelled around old town Geneva. It was a very nice experience. The boat cruise was equally enjoyable. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in becoming acquainted with Geneva!
These packages were good. Unfortunately, it was raining but fortunately, we still managed to ride the train to bring out to the Old Town bearing with the wet seats because of quite strong rain. The boat cruise was also very nice. The taped guided tour was very helpful.

Doing what: Geneva City Tour
The tour was good but you had no chance to take photos. We saw the cathedral but weren't allowed to go inside and we were restricted to just five minutes there. Most of the time is spent on the bus and then in the little train for the old town. Hardly anytime outside.
