Ideal City tour for short stay visitors

It was honestly a great tour. Everything you need to know in Geneva in a very compact setting, plus whatever you want to see more of you can always go back. For instance, we are shown St. Peter's Cathedral, and we can take pictures outside. I wanted to tour the towers and the site after so I went back the next day! It definitely is informative, and you will get good pictures. Our guide was more enthusiastic than most tours that I've been on, so that was a plus. The little train ride was cute, too. I got great pictures of the monuments, and I'm overall pleased with the tour.

This was a great overview of the city the tour guide was very knowledgable and we went to a number of different areas in the city. After the tour, I was able to find my way back to areas I wanted to explore again, on my own. Definitely recommended.
