“Two wonderful trips on Lake Geneva”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

We took a return trip across the Lake between Lausanne and Evian and then a round trip lunch time cruise between Lausanne and Chateau Chillon. The 35 minute trip to Evian was pleasant, on time and well organised. Since it is Winter the beautiful old paddle steamers are not cruising on the Lake, however the vessel we travelled on for our lunch cruise was lovely. the cruise is approximately 3.5 hours. The food was fantastic and we felt good value for money. The service was fantastic - friendly, efficient and attentive. The views of the Lake, mountains, vineyards, castles and towns was just breath taking and we were lucky with a beautiful sunny day.

Reviewed January 20, 2013

I went there with my old mother and aunt(92 and 90 years). Heelpfull staff and good sitting at the railing. The weather was beautiful. That makes of course everything splendid. The views were stunning . The coffee OK. I would not take the boat when it was cloudy or rainy.

“Steamboat”
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.
