Geneva maybe called a pocket size metropolis but surely much is in store for you between pristine Alpine peaks and the hilly terrain of the Jura. Home to the European seat of the United Nations as well as the international headquarters of the Red Cross, Geneva became known as the "capital of peace" which is a fitting title since global visitors quickly feel at home in its friendly ambience and cheerful atmosphere.  

The gentle hills, picturesque woods, vibrant lakeside promenades and lively side streets are conducive enough for a leisure walk. The astonishing Lake Geneva is tranquil enough for a scenic cruise taking you to the "Jet d'eau", one of the city's most famous landmarks. You can’t resist the play of colours in the city's English-style park, the site of the famous Flower Clock honoring Geneva's tradition of watchmaking. An exciting mini-train Tramway Tour takes you to its magnificent corners while a guided stroll through the fascinating Old Town takes you deep into the historical core of the famous “city of peace”. 

Tour departs daily from April to October 2020.
