It was a personalized guided tour to the city of Geneva. On the particular day, we were a family of 3, the only tourists, yet still the trip-bus tour, train tour, and the guide's explanation of historical aspects were carried out. We came back very informed and satisfied.
The tour show you the most important places to visit in two hours, by bus and train. You have a all view about the city and his history. The tour guide explained the history in three different languages: english, french and spanish. But remember that this tour is to have an overview of the places to visit later with more details.
This tour is great to see the highlight of Geneva when you have limited time. We may see the old town part of the city by taking an old train and also see the modern parts of the city where many world organization headquarters are located. It should be very comprehensive sightseeing tour, however due to the summer event in Geneva during our visit, many road access was closed, which made us not stopping at the lakeshore of Lake Geneva nor visiting the famous fountain on the lake (which was also not operating that time). It is not the fault of the tour operator, though. I believe we may see more parts of the city during the normal time. The room for improvement is the very limited time when we visited the old town of Geneva, it was only 5 minutes stop, so we could not explore more the grandeur of St Peter's Cathedral and other old buildings in the old town. As for the tour guide, she is friendly and informative. It is still a recommended tour, though.
The directions for where to meet the tour were very clear. We saw all that we wanted to see in Geneva. The tour director was kind and answered all our questions. Very enjoyable.
Unfortunately, when I arrived, the combo tour I had booked was cancelled, but the tour company made every effort to book me on two other tours that comprised what was on the original tour that I booked. I was the only person on the first tour! However, all the personnel was very nice and friendly, and it ended up being a nice experience overall.
Only problem was the commentary wasn't loud enough at the back of the coach. We told the lady doing the commentary, but it seems there was nothing she could do. If they turned up the volume, the sound system started to feedback.
It was a very good tour. It was very informative. We enjoyed it very much.
Definitely worth doing to get one's bearings and learn about the highligts of Geneva.
Found the many languages used by the tour guide somewhat distracting. Each tour member received somewhat different information due to the guide trying to accommodate 3 or 4 languages.
Good if you only have a day or two in Geneva and you want to see the highlights.
The Tour Guide is very experience for this City Tour. She was speaks English very well together Spanish.
It is very good for the visitors that came to Geneva for the first time.
The Tour was great and I am not expecting that they are waiting for us that we're late 5 minutes..!
Our guide Maggie was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Tour started right on time and ended just as she said it would so we were able to make it to our events on our itinerary.
