  • Geneva City Tour and Boat Cruise

    1. Geneva City Tour and Boat Cruise

    This 3-hour city tour of Geneva will take you by bus to visit the international quarters of Geneva, as well as the main tourist attractions of the city, such as the beautiful fountain (Jet d'Eau) in Lake Geneva, and the wonderful Flower Clock. You will also get a taste of Geneva’s fascinating history during a lively tramway tour, and dig deeper into the Old Town on an informative guided walking tour. Guides speak French and English, while some are also conversant in German, Italian, and Spanish, depending on the guide. To complete the tour, continue with a 1-hour cruise of the lake and see the major attractions from the water, such as the unusual rocks of the Pierres du Niton, the Water Fountain, Black Harbour, Villa Diodati, the UN Building, Castle of Bellerive, the Mermaid, and much more. For your pleasure, drinks will be offered during the cruise.

    It’s awesome when you have short time in Genève and needs to see everything fast. Staff including driver was awesome, the bus was late a lil bit but understandable due to high traffic Visited almost everything I want to see, with bus, Boat, tiny train, they were all fun. Cons: EXTREMELY RUDE Asian woman that talks to people from her inner nose at the boat Pier where you exchange QR code with physical ticket. The Awesome Tour guide saved the day and gave us tickets not to deal with her. Other than that, highly recommended

This was a wonderful experience. Gabriel really was prepared with a lot of information and humor. We really enjoyed the bus tour, the tram tour and the boat cruise on Lake Geneva. The tram ride through Old Town was a pleasant surprise and well orchestrated by Gabriel who met us at the end for the connecting walk to the boat cruise. A great way to get an overview of Geneva!

Wonderful tour!

The tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable about the history of the city. Nice combo to take the bus and walk too see sites for the 1st part of the tour then end it with a boat ride with beautiful views of the city.

I consider the 'Swiss Riviera' tour an absolute "must do", for anyone visiting Geneva! Every turn along the journey left me smiling. Indeed, the absolute beauty of this region is something both unique and special!

We were late and so missed the first part of the tour. However, Patrizia was very kind and helpful and told us exactly how to join our group and guide.

Excellent tour and highly recommended the boat ride. The guide very entertaining.
