It was wonderful in every way. On time always, which I appreciate. Nice informative tour guides. Loved the Christmas village. The castle was unbelievable and I got some of the best pictures. The driver was so skilled at getting us through tiny stone streets and alleys.

I participated this tour in late December. When I booked it, I was not sure if it was the best option because boat trip sounded nice, too. But this trip proved to be definitely better because it snowed on that day and boat trip was not possible. The guide was wonderful and I really enjoyed it.

A picturesque trip travelling from Geneva to Montreux by coach with the lake on one side and countryside on the other. Chillon Castle on the edge of the lake was most interesting. The Christmas Markets were busy and fun.

Tour guide was very informative, and the castle was the highlight, although we didn't have a guided tour as I'd thought we would. The Christmas market was nice, although items are expensive by American standards. The scenery is beautiful though. The only thing that I really didn't like about this tour is that it was supposed to start at 10am, but the tour guide waited for 30 minutes for extra people to book, which took away from shopping time at the market.
