PASS which offers a wide variety of tours, economical, easy to use

We had a 72h Geneva PASS which we used from Thursday afternoon to Sunday morning. The multitude of "free" activities allows very varied visits and the PASS quickly becomes profitable. It also allows the use of all Geneva public transport. Plan a little time at the tourist office to collect it (many of us visit Geneva !! ..)

A great way to explore this beautiful city

Great value for money. Easy to get around on buses, trams, river ferry. We really enjoyed the boat trip on the lake and the cable car ride to the top of the Saleve. The pass saved us money and ensured we got the most out of our visit.

The best thing you could do! Public transport for free even train to the airport. Museums, trips etc. Must be!

Excellent and really profitable !! in two days you can enjoy most of Geneva's attractions and activities.

Great tour, really enjoyed it even though the weather wasn’t suitable.
