“A must in a visit in Switzerland”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Obviously the best is a travel during summer as the weather can be exceptionnal. But lets be honest that even in winter or autumn with a view on the alps it is recommended. The offer also special cruise, like dinner Gastro cruises or special them music cruises which are usually succesful. Ture we are in swiss and true it could be expensive for certain people. But if you can.. do it!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We took a boat ride to Evian. We arrived in 35 minutes and realized we didn't have Euros--no problem if you have a VISA.

“A cruise to nowhere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is more of a mass transit than a sight seeing tour. It does make for interesting viewing of the Swiss countryside although on the day we went the fog obscured the beautiful mountains. I might take a shorter dinner cruise if I had to do it over.

“Always a good outing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We had several visitors this season and taking a ferry on Lake Geneva was always a hit. It was enjoyed whether going across to France or along Lavaux to Montreux or Chillon Castle. So lovely to be out on the water and have a great view of the beautiful surroundings. There is food to purchase on the boat or we have taken our own drinks and snacks along. Slightly more comfortable seating with 1st class but good viewing from lower decks as well. Enjoyed by all ages.
