Gabriel (I hope I've spelt that correctly?) our guide provided excellent commentary on the bus ride part of our tour and he was very helpful, friendly and knowledge. It was a pleasure to listen to him. We were taken around the town and stopped for a photo opportunity at the Palais des Nations and Broken Chair sculpture. We then went on the road train with audio commentary that again was excellent. Finally we went on the third part of our tour which was a boat trip on Lac Leman to look at the stunning scenery on the shore and in the distance. A fantastic experience well worth the money.

Despite a change of organization at the last minute for lack of a guide, the people of KeytourSA were able to ensure that the visit took place. The different activities allow you to see various aspects of Geneva.

Das Date hat mehrere unterschiedliche Level und Themen. Es ist für jeden was dabei. Lohnt sich aus unserer Sicht auf jeden Fall.

I had such a wonderful time and met many great people. Gabriel the tour guide was awesome and attentive.

It’s a simple tour but covers all important points
