We enjoyed the trip and all it had to offer but we were rushed through each stop. Not enough time to see all of Chillon Castle which was the highlight. We did have a nice relaxing picnic but I think it was so the boat cruise could be aligned with our arrival. There was a bit of confusion throughout the trip resulting in changing shuttles three times. This excursion would have been a very high rating if the trip could have been slowed down.
