What You Can Expect

Geneva City Tour and Boat Cruise

UN building, Geneva

After pickup at a centrally located spot in Geneva, settle into your seat on a luxury 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; delve into Geneva’s rich historical heritage and then disembark for a leisurely walking tour around the city’s charming Old Town. 

Climb aboard a boat for the tour’s dramatic finale, a 1-hour 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.
