      Worst experience ever in a sightseeing bus!
      We just got out from this ridiculous Geneva Sightseeing Bus Tour. The driver didn’t speak english , he started the spanish audio guide inside the bus for one person, we were 2 english speaking persons. It was like a crazy journey!!! In our headphones english and inside the bus very loud spanish! Keep in mind the headphones are not fitted to the ears. We felt like in Over the cuckoo’s nest! After 5 min the spanish volume was put lower and we finally could hear the very short and not important explanations of copule of buildings. We stoped for 5 min to take a picture at United Nations bit we stayed for 2 min beying afraid that the driver would live us there. After 20 minutes we went back to the Gare Station where we stopped for 10 min . We were supposed to continue the tour but we decided it is a waste of our time as this is a ridiculous meaningless trip! We might as well have taken the city bus ! Do not waste your time and of course your money!!!

      Tour company never picked us up.
      Booked this trip through Tripadvisor with Swiss sighseeing tours. They were supposed to pick us up at our hotel, we spent an hour walking between the parking lot and lobby waiting for them and no one ever came for us. They had changed the time ahead by 30 minutes but I had no cell phone service in the hotel so they didn't reach me. We drove ourselves 2 + hours to the train station to meet up with them and again, they weren't there when they said they would be and left w/o us. We had to pay again for the train and entrance fee and then get a refund from Tripadvisor. It was a wonderful trip on our own but such a disappointment that they made little to no effort to pick us up when we were there the whole time and we had to figure it all out on our own!

      Beautiful view - stay away from Husky ride
      One of the more spectacular views I have seen in the alps. Stay away from the Husky ride though! They let us do only one loop, which took about 1 minute, and the lady in charge was super grumpy, yelling at pretty much everybody. Next to it was a little sledding hill which was super fun for our kids.

      £146 for a bus ride to Chamonix
      Per the description of the trip and itinerary (photos attached), we were expecting to visit the Mer de Glace and Aiguille du Midi. On arrival at Chamonix we were advised that the cable cars don’t operate this time of year and no access is available to either - at no point was this communicated before/after my booking. Tried to contact the company to arrange a partial refund but they were not interested, although they have now amended the description of the tour per my complaint. If you do this trip yourself with Flixbus it would cost no more than £30.

      Chamonix off season not worth the trip
      There were many reasons why I was disappointed in this trip. 1) it was never made clear that Chamonix is in off season right now. Normally that wouldn’t bother me. But apparently that means that some businesses are closed completely and others are only open limited hours. For example, it would have been really helpful to know that there is only one restaurant open at all and it is only open for lunch from noon to 2 then the kitchen is closed until 7pm for dinner. That would have been important information for anyone wanting to have lunch in the village. 2) I arrived late because I injured myself on the way to the tour pickup spot. There were two employees that I interacted with. One of them was very kind and did everything within his power and authority to make me comfortable while I dealt with a painful and frustrating situation. The other employee was curt and very unsympathetic. When I asked if I could get a refund, it was a flat out “no.” Why, then, does the app have a button to request a refund? When I asked if there was going to be a lot of walking she very flippantly said “it’s a village. You walk around as much as you like.” But the village was practically vacant. I had hoped to spend time relaxing somewhere with a view so I could rest my back and maybe have a nice meal. If I had known that wasn’t going to be possible I would not have even gone. So basically this was just an $80 bus ride. Totally not worth it. Don’t go to Chamonix off season. Save your money and spend time in Geneva.

      Relaxing and enjoyable
      If you’re looking for a boat tour that provides you with a bunch of historical information, this is not for you. If you are open to just floating around the lake while enjoying some wine, cheese, meats and beautiful view - check this out! We met some really fun people. The boat only holds about a dozen people. The gentleman operating the boat was a wonderful host. We had gorgeous weather and it was near sunset. A lovely way to spend an hour on your visit.

      Nice cruise, great value
      Lovely cruise on Lac Lamon with nice nibbles and wine. Friendly skipper. Great views. No narrative, but sometimes you simply let the sights speak for themselves.

      What a fabulous experience.
      Well to start with it was a lovely day and easy to find the meeting location. Once onboard we were greeted by the crew with smiles, drinks and lovely small finger food. We were onboard for an hour, really good locations in which we saw many attractions from the water. I would 100% recommend as great value for money.

      A perfect memory of a most pleasant holiday!
      We enjoyed this beautifully relaxing and picturesque cruise and highly recommend it! The wine and cheese were a lovely touch, and the size of the boat was perfect. Our skipper was congenial and easy to chat with. A perfect end to a wonderful few days in Geneva! Top marks for this sightseeing adventure.

      Misled, Mis-sold and Angry About It!!!
      We booked the Self Guided tour of Chamonix because, according to Trip Advisor, it included both the cable car and glacier train but didn’t tie us down to a tour group. This was confirmed when we got our e-tickets. Once we were on the coach, Chris the guide advised us that it was transport only and didn’t include any other tickets. When I pointed out what was written on my e-ticket, he more or less rolled his eyes and said “Oh Tripadvisor!”. We had to pay to upgrade. I’m glad we did because the trip on the cable car and the glass cube were amazing. However I’m really angry at being misled in this way. I can’t imagine what our day would’ve been like had we not been able to afford the upgrade. Also Tripadvisor or the tour company also mis-sold the glacier train tickets knowing that it had already stopped running for the season.

      Good for a short trip. Arrive early to get your own table.
      The boat driver was lovely and I liked that it was a zero emission boat. We got there early so got lucky to get a table for one couple however there are only two tables on the boat that are for two people. The rest are for four so if you are not a group of four your will be grouped with another couple. We felt bad for the couple in the back as they were in a small booth and had two more people squished in with them. For the price we enjoyed the trip, especially as we had our own table, however it would have been nice for the boat to go a bit further up the lake. We didn’t go very far, mainly just around the fountain.

      Great small group view of Geneva
      Great little tour of the lake for an hour to see Geneva from a different angle. The wine and appetisers were also a nice bonus on a small group trip. Definitely recommend
