This tour was perfect! Our first stop in Chamonix was to go the cable cars to visit Aiguille du Midi mountain top, at 3,842-metre, in Mont Blanc. The views are mesmerizing! There's a gift shop and restaurant overlooking ‘heaven.’ Back down with the cable cars, the small town of Chamonix and all the unique shops and restaurants are welcoming, and the local people are very friendly and fluent in English. Buying souvenirs and keepsakes was easy as there were plenty to choose from. Our tour guide, ‘Roger’ (we couldn't pronounce his Latvia name, so he said we could call him Roger), shared all the history, little secrets, and great tips to make this experience memorable. 5/5 for this trip. Well organized, and thank you so much to Swiss Tours!

Gabriel (I hope I've spelt that correctly?) our guide provided excellent commentary on the bus ride part of our tour and he was very helpful, friendly and knowledge. It was a pleasure to listen to him. We were taken around the town and stopped for a photo opportunity at the Palais des Nations and Broken Chair sculpture. We then went on the road train with audio commentary that again was excellent. Finally we went on the third part of our tour which was a boat trip on Lac Leman to look at the stunning scenery on the shore and in the distance. A fantastic experience well worth the money.

Despite a change of organization at the last minute for lack of a guide, the people of KeytourSA were able to ensure that the visit took place. The different activities allow you to see various aspects of Geneva.

I had such a wonderful time and met many great people. Gabriel the tour guide was awesome and attentive.

It’s a simple tour but covers all important points
