From Lausanne: Swiss Riviera Tour

1. From Lausanne: Swiss Riviera Tour

Start your tour of the Swiss Riviera at Lake Geneva, leaving from Lausanne on a comfortable motorcoach. Enjoy a drive through the Vaud countryside to UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lavaux known for its exquisite wine production, also called The Wine Road. In spring and summer the tour will stop to visit a vineyard and taste some local wine. Leaving Lavaux you'll continue to Vevey. Here you'll have a chance to Discover Chaplin’s World, a site dedicated to Charlie Chaplin, the actor, filmmaker, and composer. Embark on an extraordinary adventure across time and through the magical world of cinema. Afterwards, if you've chosen the option for the lake cruise you will board an old steamer boat called the Belle Epoque. The cruise will pass through the beautiful scenery of Lake Geneva on the way to the Castle of Chillon, built during the 11th-century. If you did not select the cruise option you will be taken to the castle by bus, where you will have a guided tour through the castle. The last stop on the tour will be in Montreux, a glamorous tourist resort. Feel the atmosphere of all the great artists who have visited this place such as Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, BB King and Ray Charles. Wander through the streets full of fancy shops and landmarks of the famous jazz festival.

The Swiss Riviera is A wonderful place to visit and experience by everyone visiting Switzerland. We started from Lausanne towards vevey to Chaplin's World and his manor. It is a wonderful place to visit and it has excellent moments in history and instagram moments. His actual Manor is located there and it is a treat to get a glimpse of his lifestyle and plush manor. From there it was to the Vevey Vineyards and a small picnic to experience to the local wine before taking the boat to the Chillon Castle. The Chillon castle is widely visited but not really too much to see and experience. From there, it is to Montreux. This is the true sense of the Swiss Riviera and the luxury of Switzerland. The Only negative point is that you only get around 45 minutes which is not enough except to walk along the lake. If you visit Switzerland, spend some extra time at Montreux. A special note for Tom, our driver and guide who was funny and helpful.

Our guide Tom was so friendly and accomodating, making sure that everyone was happy and enjoying the experience. His good nature and humour was appreciated by all.

This tour was excellent our driver was excellent and I recommend this to everybody who would like to take it

Well organized, fun day!
