What people are saying about Geneva

Our guide Mike was very knowledgeable about chocolate and the history of Geneva, and combined them seamlessly. We appreciated that he took his time, we never felt rushed. It was nice to visit artisanal chocolate makers and learn their stories.

Maggie was a great guide. The sights were worth the money, definitely do the cable cars and the glacier train. Although we wished we went in the summer months to see the ice grotto!

If you want to use boring Sunday as better as possible, take this one day trip and enjoy in cheese and chocolate and everything else what this trip offers. Thank you, Tom!
