Tour: #301173, Lausanne and Montreux Tour, Geneva, Switzerland    view tour
Date: Sep 23/19

Of the four wonderful days I spent with Maria, this rates the highest. I didn't want the standard cheese and chocolate factory tours but wanted to see the lakefront región and the towns in between Geneva and Montreux. Maria put this day together based on my stated preferences ... starting from Geneva, we toured Lausanne, saw the terraces of Lavaux (postcard beautiful), toured and lunched in Gruyeres and ended with a stunning walk at sunset along the Montreux lakefront promenade. A perfect day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jeannie. I will also always remember time spent with you.

Tour: Annecy, Geneva, Switzerland
Date: Sep 18/19

Don't miss this short day trip from Geneva if you have the time. This was my third day with Maria and it was just as wonderful as the first two days. Annecy is a very picturesque and walkable French town situated on Lake Annecy. We started with a one hour boat ride and then walked through Old Town. Very picturesque, lots of shopping opportunities and wonderful food. Maria is a true professional, very informative, fun and funny. Couldn't have been happier with my day.

This was my second day in Switzerland with Maria. What a lovely drive we had through the countryside on our way to Chamonix and Mt Blanc. We lucked out with the weather and got some terrífic pictures up on Mt Blanc (including the Matterhorn in the distance) and during our walk through Chamonix. We stopped in Yvoire on the way back and had a nice lunch and very picturesque walk through this medieval town on Lake Geneva. It was a terrífic day.

Maria took me on a walking tour of Geneva my first morning there. What a wonderful introduction to the city! Maria is warm and generous and knows so much about Switzerland in general and Geneva in particular.

Maria is a great tour guide for Geneva. I was surprised that we really could cover Geneva in a half a day tour. We covered Old Town and the UN/WTO areas and Maria did a great job of keeping all 8 of us together and informed. Don't forget to pick up your free bus pass from your hotel as Maria will leverage them to get you across town quickly to ensure a complete Geneva visit. Highly Recommended.

This was an interesting and beautiful tour. Marie managed all the complicated aspects of it perfectly. The tour involved beautiful scenery and interesting insights about the two cities. In addition to pointing out the spectacular views of mountains and Lake Geneva, Marie had very interesting comments about the history and role of these cities in attracting well known people to both live and vacation in them. I recommend Marie ad a guide.

Maria was a cheerful and informed guide. She accommodated our desire to visit the international area of Geneva first and ensured we saw all the important sites. She was both well informed and managed our time perfectly. She made every effort to show us all the important sites in the old city and made our visit informative and enjoyable. I recommend her for your tour.

Maria was very thorough and generous with her time. We explored the Old Town together and the newer part where the UN and Red Cross sites are located. She covered centuries of history without overwhelming us with dates. Maria is very knowledgeable. She also gave us tips on how to use public transportation with the pass every hotel should give out. Overall a very good experience.

Maria was a very good guide. She was prompt, kind and seemed very knowledgeable about the city. I would have liked a bit more history as we walked but I liked her approach very much. Also, enjoyed that we used public transport and that helped us during our short stay in Geneva. Thanks!

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Joe!
