It was absolutely worth it - It’s a perfect overview of Geneva city history, not too long, not too short, just enough to get an idea and some general knowledge about Geneva. My favorite part was the tour to the old town and a boat ride. We got right to the bottom of the fountain. It was cool. I highly recommend the tour!

Just right! - Great tour for those unfamiliar with the city -- interesting facts and the end little train ride through historic Geneva was just the right touch. Not too long and not too short! Gabrille (guide) and Orlando (driver) made it extra special!

Well organized, great private boat tour. - Big tour bus for 3 people. With all due respect to environment concerns expressed by tour guide - it was weird. Otherwise: well organized, covered most landmarks, good experience with train and great experience with boat private tour.

A short day trip to see Geneva - A great way to see as much of what Geneva has to offer on a tight schedule. The tour guide Gabriel was excellent giving us the running commentary throughout the tour and looking after us. We would have loved to have had more time to stop and take in the many points of interest.

Okay tour - Okay bus and mini train tour. Meet up could have been better executed. Narrative on bus was difficult to hear. Driver did a decent job of getting views to sites. Ministration was okay. Good narration but not enough stops.

Geneva City tour - Just an average city tour. Being honest, never liked the 5 minute stop for pictures on broken chair. There were a lot of crowd and to take turns for pictures, no way it could be done in 5 mins, it could've been extended to 15mins at least. Old city tour was good. Boat cruise, we were just left there to ride with ourselves, no orientation or anything. Seemed like, we're being rushed and never had chances to take wonderful pictures. Guide wasn't really accommodating in my opinion, just finishing up a work day, not very conversational except for what he needed to say in the bus. This was on a Sunday 2pm slot, May 12th, 2024.
