At a centrally located pickup point in Geneva, climb aboard a comfortable, climate-controlled coach and admire the spectacular scenery during the 60-mile (97-km) journey to Montreux. Enjoy a brief in interlude in Lausanne, an enchanting town surrounding by the UNESCO-listed Lavaux vineyards, and capture panoramic photographs of Lake Geneva from an ideal vantage point.
Arrive on the outskirts of Montreux and embark on a 1-hour guided tour of Château de Chillon, a grand castle and fortress located on an island in Lake Geneva, and find yourself suitably awestruck by one of Switzerland’s most famous landmarks. Hear of famous writers who were inspired by the residence and then head into the historical center of Montreux to browse the enticing stalls of the Christmas market.
Spend the rest of your tour perusing the magical craft stalls and appetizing food bars in Montreux; sip rich Swiss hot chocolate and purchase unique souvenirs typical of the region. If visiting in other months, spend some free time exploring Montreux; see beautiful views of Lake Geneva; browse the sophisticated boutiques for designer clothes; or enjoy some lunch in one of the top-quality restaurants on the flower-filled promenade. Afterwards, return to Lausanne for a comprehensive walking tour of the city.
Return to your vehicle after thorough exploration and relax during the journey back to Geneva, where the tour concludes.
