Your adventure starts with a sightseeing tour of both Geneva and nearby Annecy. You’ll see the UN headquarters, the Flower Clock, and the city’s old town. One of the city’s great draws however, is Lake Geneva, and an optional cruise is the perfect way to experience the beauty of this city’s Alpine location. You’ll cross the French border to Annecy and enjoy a guided walk of the medieval old town. A walk or bike ride along the lake is also highly recommended.

On your second full day, visit the city’s most majestic neighbour, Mont Blanc. A cable car ride takes you to stunning views of the mountain and the surrounding Alps. In the afternoon, board the scenic train from Chamonix to Montenvers, where you can view the Mer de Glace glacier and learn about the geography of this wonderful region.

Day 2

Geneva City Tour

This city sightseeing tour is a perfect introduction to Geneva. It is especially great if you've just arrived in the city and want to get a lay of the land. Geneva is a global city, home to many international groups, UN agency headquarters and other diplomatic organizations. On this brief city sightseeing tour, your local tour guide will show you where many of these famous organizations are housed, and introduce you to Geneva's top sights, like the Jet d'Eau on Lake Geneva. You will tour the city on a bus, and go for a ride on a mini-train to get a taste of Geneva's history. Then, your friendly local guide will lead you around Geneva's Old Town, entertaining you with facts about Swiss history.

Duration2 Hours
Day 3

Chamonix and Mont-Blanc

After boarding an air-conditioned coach in Geneva in the morning, relax on an unforgettable 1.5 hour drive across the Switzerland-France border and through the picturesque Arve Valley to Chamonix. This stunning Alpine village is situated at the foot of majestic Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Europe at 15,780 feet (4,800 meters).

For those crunched for time (or scared of heights), this option is ideal. When you arrive in Chamonix, you'll have the rest of the morning to explore independently. Enjoy picturesque mountain views around every corner as you discover the town's many delights, such as Parc Loisir, Musee Alpin, Lac Gaillands and Atelier Les Racines. Cozy up at a typical French bistro or chic Alpine chalet to indulge in the satisfying Savoyard specialty: fondue. Board the coach in the late afternoon for the ride back to Geneva.
