Boat Tours – Geneva

See glorious Geneva from the water by boarding a boat tour. Look back at the charming city buildings, take in the iconic Jet d’Eau fountain and marvel at the mountainous backdrop. A Geneva sightseeing cruise is the perfect way to while away your day. Make sure to listen in on the commentary and spot the city sights. Look, there’s the Mermaid Statue and Black Harbour. Call your boat cruise the starter, and then you can get into the main course once you step foot on dry land.

    Worth doing

    The tour is well organised and run. The combo of bus, train and cruise is what makes it fun. However I wish this had been a solely English tour- the multilingual guiding is irritating as you need to strain your ears to catch when the guide has switched to English. Also, quite often, by the time it is English's turn, you have overshot the site being talked about. I think Isango should separately market English and muti lingual tours.
