“Very special tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

The vineyards around Lake Geneva are one of my favourite places to visit in Switzerland so I jumped at the opportunity to do this tour. I think this tour is the perfect way to experience up-close the beauty of this region and the spectacular scenery.

I must admit that I'm not very knowledgeable about wine but after this experience I have a new-found appreciation for it. I also think it's very special that all these Swiss cellars make their own local wines.

So all-in-all, if it's scenery or wine that you're interested in, I highly recommend this tour!

“Excellent and informative!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Switzerland, and especially the famous Lavaux and Chablais areas are some of the most beautiful in Europe.

However, there are not many options or tours available to foreign travelers to unlock some of the secrets of the vineyards and wines grown here.

We were lucky to find Swiss Riviera Wine Tours which offer tours in these areas in several languages accompanied by well-qualified guides. We are not great wine-drinkers, but the informative tour has given us a new perspective and enjoyment of the wines and the region itself. The tour, the transport and organization were very professional and felt like a very special and exclusive tour.
I feel any holiday or tour in the French speaking part of Switzerland should include this excellent tour.

“Wonderful Tour!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I felt very fortunate to find Nick Abundo and Swiss Riviera Wine Tours!! We have traveled extensively in Europe and always enjoy exploring the wine offerings of each region. The area around Lake Geneva is breathtaking and we were given a "front row" seat to enjoy not only the beautiful surroundings, but wonderful food and wine as well! Our experience taking great wine tours in Tuscany and several areas of France made exploring this Swiss region a "must do". You won't be disappointed. We can't wait to return.
