We were informed ita 2 hour city tour, with mini train trip at the end, instead we were given a 90 minute tour, and the last bit of the tour, we had to walk in the old town, and we were told the mini train only operates in summer. THIS WAS NOT SPECIFIED WHEN BOOKING. IF ID OF KNOW THERE WAS WALKING INVOLVED, I would not of gone on this tour, I’m an amputee. Very poor and disappointing. The guide did his best but in the end when he said walking was involved, we got off and had to get an Uber back to hotel, as our coach was on another journey.

Excellent tour to include both tour bus journey and walking with excellent commentary. Our tour guide Gabriel was fabulous. He was polite, friendly and approachable, has extensive knowledge on Geneva and was able to answer all questions. The tour gave us a great insight to the city and we saw and learnt so much about both the old and the new town. Highly recommend

This tour was a great way to see the City of Geneva. Gabriel was so knowledgeable and you could tell he loved this city!! He shared all the history even the little known facts. The sights came alive under his commentary. He kept a good walking pace for the entire group. Highly recommend asking for Gabriel when you take this a tour!! I recommend going on. Sunday as the city is less crowded.
