In late june we had expected this mini train to be running as they're normally a great idea for gaining some visual info of a place. A bus was offered at a slightly different time but as it was fine weather we wanted to stay...More

We have taken this train “mini-tour” a couple times, and again this year, as it is a fun and relaxing way to see quite a bit of the central Annecy area without walking a lot. With this overview tour, you can see the areas that...More

We did this tour towards the end of our day which after we wish we would have done it to start with. The tour hits a lot of highlights in the city and gives you a great history. A little pricey but overall worth it.

If you don't have much time, this tram ride through the old part of Geneva is a useful way to see some key sites and get a sense of the design of the city. The commentary is pre-recorded so there is always an exact link...More

This is an ok tour and great for small children. The information comes in French and English on a tape so it was often out of sync with the actual scenery. Audio was loud enough to hear, if you are fluent, but if your language...More

I am extremely disappointed in this operation. We waited half an hour for a scheduled Old Town tour. When the train arrived a horde of large elderly people piled on to the train taking up all the space. There was ample room for three adults...More

We had some time before we were leaving Geneva, so went for the Parks tour on the little train, quite pleasant along the lake, through the parklands and pass some mansions. Driver was friendly, so overall not a bad way to spend half an hour...More

We just took a ride in December 2017 and have taken it in the past during the summer. So I would guess the answer would be yes, year round.
