Enjoy Lake Geneva's beautiful setting on this combo sightseeing tour

Climb aboard a luxury coach at a central location in Geneva and commence your panoramic sightseeing tour of the city. Gaze out of the window at significant landmarks like the Flower Clock (L’horloge Fleurie), the UN headquarters and the beautiful English Garden (Jardin Anglais) and listen to captivating commentary before disembarking to travel by tram to some of the city’s secret spots.

If you chose to upgrade, head to the shores of Lake Geneva to enjoy a tranquil cruise over the shimmering surface of the water. 

After admiring scenery backed by the snow-capped spires of the Alps, enjoy some leisurely free time to eat lunch (own expense) and then return to the coach to cross the border over to France. 

Arrive in Annecy, an alluring Alpine town thronged with vibrant colored houses and medieval monuments, and follow your guide on an explorative walk through the Old Town. Capture photographs of the iconic Palais d’Isle, a 12th-century fortress whose vertiginous perch affords spectacular views of the city, and browse the exhibits within Château d’Annecy to gain insight into the rich history of the region. 

Return to the coach in the late afternoon and relax during the scenic journey back to original departure point in Geneva.

I really enjoyed this tour. Annecy is amazing. Definitely take the Cruise as well. We met some lovely people and our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I never felt rushed or like I didn't have enough time to see all I wanted to see. Thank you so much!

I have been using Viator since 2012 and have never been disappointed. We had only 2 days in Geneva, therefore I took Geneva Annecy tour with Lake Geneva cruise. The rendezvous point was at a central location and easily accessible. The tour bus was very comfortable, punctual and the guide was superb, narrating the history of Geneva and commenting on the buildings on the way. Drive to Annecy is very picturesque. After 30 min of guided tour in Annecy we had about 2 hours on our own walking around the commercial area and traditional markets. The entire experience was fantastic. Back in Geneva we stopped at the United Nations. We saw the major landmarks of the Geneva city with brief description by the guide. The Lake Geneva cruise is a good experience, but you can do that on your own too. If you want to enjoy most in one day and in comfort, then this tour will meet your expectations.

Our guide Herman and driver Shamira were both fantastic. They made the day very enjoyable. Thank you.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

The day went very smooth and was definitely worth doing if you have one day in Geneva. We had the same guide for the entire day which was quite comforting. Annecy was beautiful and well worth seeing. The bus tour and tramway tours were a great way to see the main points of the city with some welcome stops to take photos. The lake cruise with a free drink was a perfect compliment to the day. Good value for money!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2017

My friend and I had a limited time to see as much as we can while in Geneva. A day tour with Viator was the perfect solution. The sights around Geneva was not just beautiful but historical as well. The International Organizations buildings such as the United Nations,the Red Cross was only a couple of the many educational locations. The guide was so informative and professional in getting out the important aspects of the tour. We were well informed.
The trip to Annecy is a taste of medieval times....ancient ruins in a lovely setting. And the the Lake Geneva Cruise is a refreshing end of a well planned day tour. Relaxing while enjoying a drink and experiencing the lake and the wonderful views around it! Geneva is a must when visiting Switzerland!! Will recommend Viator.

I was on my own while my husband was attending a conference in Annecy. This tour was a very nice way for me to tour by myself. I really enjoyed all parts of the Geneva/Annecy tour. I did the Lake Geneva cruise too. I have only positive things to say. It was a very lovely day.
