A pleasant 55-minute boat trip. Next time, we'll take a longer route to enjoy it for longer!

It was a great time. Only I would have liked some commentary on the places we could see from the boat. It lacked something.

We simply walked around the lake without a guide to explain what we were seeing. Otherwise, the team did a good job, but a little sloppy in my opinion.

The boat ride was good, but during boarding I was told that my child does not need a ticket because I have the SBB Kunior Card. I was disappointed that they did not list it under the ticket order, so in the future I am considering buying tickets through the official sales partner.

When you've explored Geneva enough on land, it's time to hit the waters and drink in views of the city from a new perspective. Your cruise begins from the Pierres du Niton, where you will cruise towards the Pointe à la Bise. Gaze out at Geneva’s famous Jet d’Eau here, an iconic fountain the city is known for! You'll also get views of the Mont-Blanc Mountains, the surrounding Alps, and world-renowned landmarks like the United Nations office. You'll find elegantly manicured gardens lining the lake shores, and stunning flora and fauna enveloping you! This scenic sightseeing cruise promises an idyllic setting, and is an absolute must for first-timers in Geneva!

You may download an app with relevant information about the cruise at the cashier's desk (a free WiFi zone) for additional context during the cruise!
