We loved Montreux and the Chateau de Chillon, which we highly recommend. The problem with this tour is the stop in Corsier sur Vevey is pointless. This company has another similar tour that stops at the Charlie Chaplin museum in Corsier sur Vevey and they lump this tour in with them and say you can visit Corsier sur Vevey. The problem is that we were dropped off in the middle of a residential neighborhood where there is literally nothing to see or visit. I would recommend finding a tour that goes straight to Montreux and skips the stop in Corsier sur Vevey.

The tour was really nice. The guide was amazing, friendly, and knowledgeable. We learned so much. The driver was very nice too. They made sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable throughout the trip. The weather was great too !! I really recommend this trip.

Maggie was a great tour guide. For example, we had the option on this trip to upgrade to include a boat ride to chillon and Chaplin world Studios. I only wanted the boat tour. She gave me tips on where to purchase the boat tickets and where on the boat the group was going to be at.

We started looking for organized trips during our very brief visit to Switzerland and were pleasantly surprised to find an excellent offer on your website. Booking was very easy. We booked two trips. Yolanda was our guide during both trips. She is an an excellent guide very knowledgeable about Switzerland its history, customs, politics, wine... She answered all our questions. She is also fluent in many languages. Weather was beautiful and we enjoyed beautiful views and our scheduled program very much

We loved our tour guide, Hector! We had seen 2 tours on Viator, one with the Charlie Chaplin museum, one without. We weren't really interested in going to the museum so picked the basic tour. Our tour included people who bought the other package. We thought we'd be able to walk around a village but there was nothing near the museum so we basically had to either tour the museum or sit on the bus. The museum was really interesting and worth the price so I'm glad we did it. We also had to pay an additional amount to take the Lake Geneva boat to the Chateaux de Chillon. Also well worth it but an unexpected, added, expense. Our original description, of the package we purchased, included a tram ride, which was not included. Because of this the company paid for our entrance into the Chateaux . Overall a great trip, as long as you get the add ons.

I would have liked more time to spend at Charlie Chaplin studios and Chateau Chillon with a shorter break at Montreux which requires not more than 45 min to stroll through th etown.

Maggie was the tour guide of the day. She was very attentive to her tour group's needs to the point of even furnishing local Swiss snacks. I opted to visit the quaint little village of Corsier instead of going to Charlie Chaplin Studios. However, I think it would be very worthwhile to do. The Chateau de Chillon is great a must for history lovers. Montreux, however, is more or less a 30 minute last stop before heading back to Geneva. Take advantage of the time there to see the Freddy Mercury statue and grab an icecream. It is basically all the time you will have there.

This was a nice tour but since I bought the basic package I was not able to enter the Chaplin museum, ride the boat to the castle or enter the castle. Luckily I had bought the swiss travel pass and the boat ride and entrance to the castle were all included with the pass for free! I was under the impression if I had purchase this basic package then I would be transferred to the destinations with a separate group but instead I was part of the group who had access to all parts and had to wait while the others were in the museum.
