Overall the tour was good value,taking in some of the important buildings and headquarters of the worlds biggest organisations.the boat trip was pleasant and worth the extra money.
The only negative comment being that on the coach part of the tour we couldn't hear the guide very well!!
This was a very nice and well organised tour which gave us a good overview of Geneva in half a day. The boat cruise and the mini train ride is definitely something to experience.
Very nice tour as you will be unable to walk through yourself in the United Nations area.. The cruise was good but the boat was not so good. There is far better boats in Paris or even annecy. Rest the guide is very helpful and knowledgable and the small train trip is also worth it. Overall good!
Everything was on time. You take a glimpse of the whole city and decide where to go afterwards. Boat tour was very enjoying.
We had booked this tour to give me a comprehensive look at Geneva, and boy was I impressed!
The tour was comprehensive and excellent.
We started off from Gare Routiere in Geneva and boarded a tourist bus which was comfortable and air-conditioned. We went all around geneva and got to look at many important buildings such as the WTO , UN , UNAIDS and others!
Then we were transferred to a mini train through which we went through the tiny little streets of Geneva that were not accessible by the Bus. Again we saw interesting landmarks and places! got to know a lot of stuff!
Finally, at the final leg of the tour, we were transferred to a boat to go around lake geneva. And I can say is this was by far that most mesmerising and heavenly experience of the tour!
It was a great sunny and clear day, and to spend on the lake was simply dazzling. One can not get enough of the fantastic views of the geneva city and its shores and monuments.
The boat trip lasted about an hour where we went through an anti clockwise patter starting off from the Jet D'eau and concluding at the chinese embassy and light house.
Overall, I really do recommend anyone who is coming first time to geneva to take this tour!
This was a good way to get an overview of Geneva if you are time poor, we only had one day in Geneva and thought this tour allowed us to see all the top bits of Geneva. It is one of the most stunning country and river in the world.
very informative trip, guide spoke very good English. Our only disappointment which was nothing to do with Viator was the large group of middle eastern origin who continually took pictures of each other (rather than the scenery!) this happened on the boat trip and for us it was rather spoilt as they continued to drape themselves across the side of the boat posing. They know who they are....just feel sorry for their families when they get home and have to endure at least 1000 pics of pouting lips and flyaway hair!!!!! Otherwise a great trip and well worth the money......x
The boat cruise was the saving grace. It was a wonderful way to see some spectacular sights and views after a rather lacklustre bus tour in a very hot bus with air-conditioning that has seen better days. The little train ride through old town was the only highlight of the bus tour portion.
I was pleased with the tour and I liked the variety in transport modes: bus, trolley car and boat! Very nice and very comprehensive. I will be looking for Viator tours wherever I go in Europe and have a free day. Great way to get to know a place and discover where you'll want to return and investigate further!
