Actually, the best time to go is in August, when the weather can get a little cooler - a perfect summer breeze. There's also a festival going on in the city! Of course, if you're planning to ski while you're in Switzerland, winter is better.

What people are saying about Geneva
Would recommend this trip to anyone! A lovely drive there and back which doesn’t take too long and plenty of time to walk around and explore Annecy. Our guide was so helpful and gave us a 20 minute tour when we got there and then we could go and explore on our own. A perfect day trip from Geneva and so glad we did it!
Everything was amazing! The whole trip was as described, very friendly and knowledgeable guide ..the only downside is that we only got to half way to mon blanc bcz it was closed for maintenance. But the agency explained that very well and we were given the choice to take it or get refunded. Highly recommended
A very good guide to some of the lake houses and the history behind the lake houses and who own them and to my surprise a lot of Chicago peeps this was there summer get away homes very educational..
Maggie was a great guide. The sights were worth the money, definitely do the cable cars and the glacier train. Although we wished we went in the summer months to see the ice grotto!
Great tour with a very knowledgeable guide and lots of fantastic chocolate
