“The best way to celebrate the 1st of August”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

The dinner-cruise on August 1st was expensive, but worthwhle. You can even take your own picnic and sit outside to watch the fireworks.

“Steamboat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

In the summer, five steamboats with paddle whells navigate on the lake. A great journey, special with the "La Suisse" from Lausanne to Montreux. But the steamboats have great demand and sometimes it is difficult to found a good sitting. The other boats (diesel) from the CGN haven't the same charm, of course.

“Steam boat trip on Lac Leman”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Today we've made a trip from Nyon to Yvoire and then back to Geneva via Nyon, Coppet and Versoix. Traversing the lake on a steam boat was a great fun for (not only) the kids and we're already now planning more boat trips on Swiss lakes. Highly recommended on sunny days. On top, all journey covered by the Swiss SBB-CFF-FSS abonnement général (AG) public transport subscription.
