What people are saying about Geneva

Highly recommend this tour. You'd be lost in Genoa without a tour. We stayed on the whole first time then got off at a stop and walked around. The guide was very helpful and made special arrangements because we had booked for the wrong day.

Every part of the experience was worth it! The view was amazing. I definitely plan to return. Just be sure to dress appropriately!-- it's freezing cold there. Highly recommended!

If you want to use boring Sunday as better as possible, take this one day trip and enjoy in cheese and chocolate and everything else what this trip offers. Thank you, Tom!

Typically November weather, but the cruise was excellent. Nice onboard service

Our guide was very knowledgeable, attentive and engaging.
