What You Can Expect

Geneva City Tour and Boat Cruise

UN building, Geneva

Departing from a convenient, central location, you'll enjoy a relaxing tour around Geneva's famous attractions by luxury coach. You'll see popular sites including the Geneva Fountain (Jet d'Eau), an impressive feature that jets water to an altitude of approximately 140 meters (459 feet), besides the equally intriguing Geneva Flower Clock (Horloge Fleurie). Have your camera poised to take photos of the stunning dial that hovers over circular flowerbeds in Geneva's English Garden.

Your Geneva City Tour will continue with a tramway tour through the city's narrow streets and alleyways. You'll learn about Geneva's rich history as you travel by unique tram, before taking a walking tour around Geneva's Old Town with your knowledgeable, local guide.

Before returning to central Geneva, your tour will end with a 1-hour cruise around Lake Geneva, often referred to as Europe's most spectacular lake. Sit back and relax while taking in views of Geneva's UN building, the Castle of Bellerive and the water fountain. Lake Geneva is framed by the beautiful, snow-capped Alps, so seeing simply the mountains themselves are a fantastic highlight in their own right.

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

There were mixed reviews on this tour, so I was deciding between this tour and another all-day tour. Because I want time to explore places on our own, I ended up choosing to do this 3-hour tour. I'm glad we did, especially since we had a short stay in Geneva and we probably saw more than we would otherwise on our own. This tour consists of a tour on the bus where some of the key attractions are pointed out, the train ride (the best part of the tour, I think where we visited the old town area) and the boat ride. You don't actually get out and do anything; it's more of a bus/tram/boat tour, which is perfectly fine. The boat ride was relaxing but it was carved out with another vendor (not led by the tour company) and that was just OK - it was something we could skip in hindsight. Overall, it was well organized and this tour was one of the highlights of my trip to Geneva. If you are pressed for time, I would recommend this tour.

As a tip: even though you can check in electronically or with a paper voucher with this tour, I saw another couple with some minor problems when checking in electronically (they still need the voucher number). I'd suggest folks to print out a copy of their voucher for this tour.
