We took the paddle boat across Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) from the Ouchy Station to Chateau Chillon. It was a long enjoyable ride with beautiful scenery. We went up to the top floor, but were told that we had to leave that area, which was first class, because we had second class tickets. Second class of course wasn't as nice,... More

Boarded the boat in Ouchy and got off at the Chateau Chillon. The ride was very pleasant. We purchased our return by train ticket at the same time we purchased our boat ticket. Nice to come back by train and see a few different things.

On a visit to Lausanne a paddle steamer journey is highly recommended. We enjoyed the 3 hour trip to Chateau Chillon and back very much.

A round trip on the Lake of Geneva on a 110 years old steam boat ! Spend a couple of hours in times past, this wonderful old paddle steamer hints back to a more relaxed way of travel. The bar is beautifully fitted out with gleaming wood paneling. The big engines are open for everyone interested to see the huge... More

Went during a lunch/afternoon tour from Lausanne round trip across the lake and it was a super relaxing 3 hour tour with good food and amazing views of the lake. Food for the price was above average and the wine made for a perfect afternoon cruise. 1st class was nice as well, just not sure for the extra cost however.... More

took trip across lake to Evian. A thunderstorm came up which sent us scrambling to the enclosed restaurant on-board. Even though we didn't order anything (30-minute crossing), the staff was so friendly & invited us to just sit & enjoy the view of lightning & rain safely!!

We have been sailing regularly on these vessels and have taken the lunch time tour on La Suisse many times since the ship's major renovations. Normally I would praise the experience - but no longer - and this is why ... We were staying in Evian and started the day from there. We, two adults and a twelve year old,... More

The boat ride and lunch were nice. The waiters were a bit over loaded and service was slow. The food was good but not great. The boat ride was very smooth and the boat itself was clean.

On the return we upgraded to first class which enabled access to the upper deck lounge, restaurant, bar and open deck areas... More

We went from Nyon to Montreaux. The cruise was great, but the food was better. Spend the extra and go first class. That way you get to eat in the beautiful dining room and have a wonderful lunch. I had a venison stew that was fabulous. Service was great, too.
