A Recent Review of this tour

Maria did a great job. She shared local history on the United nations and Geneva. She pointed out particular items that would be of importance to us... but as our main interest was in the reformation, she then moved to the old town and provided a great background history as we toured various local sites. It was a hot sunny day so she did her best to bring us to shady spots as she described each area. Maria is a top notch guide and this is a tour we greatly enjoyed.
