Depart from Gare Routiere Bus Station in central Geneva and travel by climate-controlled minivan to Chaplin’s World: a site dedicated to Charlie Chaplin. Learn about the influential 20th-century artist inside the Hollywood-style studio.

Next, ride along the UNESCO-listed Lavaux, also called 'the wine road' and known for its scenic vineyards.

Take a 1-hour guided tour of one of Switzerland’s most iconic attractions and delve into the history of the dramatic structure with your guide.

Top off the day with a final stop in the tourist resort of Montreux.

Tour guide was quite passive. He only started introducing himself in the coach after the trip started for some time. Minimal explanation throughout the trip. At each destination, we were just given instruction of where to meet at a certain time. Everything was self-explored. Not worth the money.

It was wonderful in every way. On time always, which I appreciate. Nice informative tour guides. Loved the Christmas village. The castle was unbelievable and I got some of the best pictures. The driver was so skilled at getting us through tiny stone streets and alleys.

I participated this tour in late December. When I booked it, I was not sure if it was the best option because boat trip sounded nice, too. But this trip proved to be definitely better because it snowed on that day and boat trip was not possible. The guide was wonderful and I really enjoyed it.

A picturesque trip travelling from Geneva to Montreux by coach with the lake on one side and countryside on the other. Chillon Castle on the edge of the lake was most interesting. The Christmas Markets were busy and fun.

Tour guide was very informative, and the castle was the highlight, although we didn't have a guided tour as I'd thought we would. The Christmas market was nice, although items are expensive by American standards. The scenery is beautiful though. The only thing that I really didn't like about this tour is that it was supposed to start at 10am, but the tour guide waited for 30 minutes for extra people to book, which took away from shopping time at the market.

Todo fue excelente, desde el conductor del minibús Xosé, pasando por la amable y simpática guía Yolanda que nos entretuvo y nos explicó de forma muy amena y entretenida todo lo que veíamos y a dónde íbamos, hasta los sitios y lugares que fuimos a ver. Lo mejor, el Charles Chaplins World, algo que hay que ir a ver SI o SI, impresionante. Quizás me gustó algo menos el Château de Chillon, pero la visita a Montreux fue igualmente muy bonita y divertida. Entrar en el Casino para poder disfrutar del Queen Studio Xperience fue algo mágico igualmente. Excursión recomendada sin duda!!!
