Tour description

Welcome to Geneva, a city of beautiful landscapes and a cosmopolitan and historical atmosphere with much to offer.
 Join this tour in which we will walk from one to the other of two must-see water spots in the city.
Of course, without leaving behind the basics of the historic center so that your experience in this destination is unforgettable :)

For now, tours are in Spanish , but tours can be arranged in English , French , Italian , Portuguese or Catalan if you wish. This requires a minimum of 5 people and contact me in advance (at least one week in advance) to see if there is availability.

El tour estuvo bastante bien, lo recomendaría porque no es la típica ruta de lo más turístico de Ginebra, sino que mezcla un poco eso con lugares más distintos y es estupendo, sin el tour algunas de las cosas que vimos no las habríamos visto (al no tenerlas como "importantes para ver en Ginebra"). Mario trata de contarte datos curiosos o peculiares dentro de los puramente históricos. Además tuvo un detalle con nosotros típico de Ginebra y muy rico para comer! También está muy pendiente del chat antes y después del tour para resolverte todas las dudas que tengas.
