One of the most beautiful and interesting places I’ve been. The lake is half Swiss, half French, surrounded by beautiful mountains. If you’re in Geneva, you have to go visit down by the lake.

Very nice area surrounded by all the big hotels and big business, and as you go farther away from Geneva (on the boat tour) you note lots of expensive homes all tiered to give each a lake view.

Lake Geneve is one of the most beautiful lakes I have seen, the waters are clear and the views are stunning, love to walk around the lake and enjoy the amazing scenery of the lake and fountain, a must see.

Did the boat ride over to the beach side. Great lake with plenty to do both in and out of the water. Great attraction

A lovely Mediterranean beach vibe. Loads of cafes, lovely promenade to walk, great shopping and Bains de Paquis is a must on a hot day for a swim!

Took a ferry from Geneva to Nyon. What a wonderful way to look at the beautiful mountains, lake, landscape, and villages along the coast. It was relaxing after a busy day of walking tours, there’s food and beverages for purchase - would do this again, highly recommend!

Make sure to try to go to the public beach that costs 2CHF. The fondue there is delicious and recommended by the locals!!

Went on the 2 hour Lake Geneva Grand Tour cruise and paid extra for what we were told would be drinks and snacks. When onboard I was given the only option of wine tasting (which was fine) but no snacks. Somebody else later was offered food but no drinks with the same ticket.

There were 2 staff running the bar. The young lady did her very best to avoid serving anyone even when a queue formed and when the other staff member left the bar to collect food from downstairs and deliver it to people.

Our cruise was the one prior to a 4 hour evening cruise and the young lady was more interested in making sure the glasses and cutlery were clean for that trip than serve the customers stood in front of her.

I probably spent over 30 minutes of a two hour trip queuing with my back to the scenery.

The cruise was OK...just don't bother paying extra
