I really enjoyed this half day tour as I had limited time in Geneva. The first part of the tour comprises of the new city on a coach and the second part of the old town is on a little open train. Beautiful insight of Geneva !

This tour is well worth doing, and the ancient buildings are very interesting. It is quite hilly, and there are also many steps to go down as well, but should be ok for most people. It was quite quiet in winter when we were there, but I am sure that in the summer it is a very busy area with lots going on all the time.

This tour was amazing! I don't remember the name of the guide but she was amazing. We had the perfect idea how Geneva looks like and we went to all the important place we needed to know. Thank you Viator for this tour. It is a must if you go to Geneva.

We only had one day in Geneva and this tour was able to cover most of the highlights of the city! We especially enjoyed the mini-train ride through the old part of the city.

The city tour lived up to my expectations--it was a great orientation to the city. We saw the outside of the buildings in the international district including the UN, the city area around the lake, and took a walking tour of old town. I went back to old town the next day to enjoy a music festival and some museums I was glad I was oriented to the area, however. The guide recommended taking the tour of the U.N. get on the U.N. website for details which you should work into your itinerary.

Great tour. 3-hour Geneva tour and Lake Geneva cruise was very informative.The Tramway tour commentary about Geneva's past was very entertaining and the guide very friendly. The 1-hour Lake Geneva cruise was a good way to view the city.Highly recommended.

Excellent tour to give you a feel for Geneva - in Winter you don't do the lake tour but at least you find out it's not Lake Geneva!

A great way to see Geneva. Our guide Patricia was lovely, very friendly and knowledgeable about the city. She allowed for extra time for the walking tour of the old town which was very interesting. The remainder of the tour by bus to see the international district where the United Nations and World Health Organisation buildings among others were located was ok, however, as we only drive by these buildings, it seemed a bit pointless in the end.

It was honestly a great tour. Everything you need to know in Geneva in a very compact setting, plus whatever you want to see more of you can always go back. For instance, we are shown St. Peter's Cathedral, and we can take pictures outside. I wanted to tour the towers and the site after so I went back the next day! It definitely is informative, and you will get good pictures. Our guide was more enthusiastic than most tours that I've been on, so that was a plus. The little train ride was cute, too. I got great pictures of the monuments, and I'm overall pleased with the tour.
