Belles Rives Genevois - 1 hour boat tour Lake Boat Trips Review

There are quite a few options for boat tours around Lake Geneva, including a lunch cruise, a two hour cruise and an all day nine hour cruise. We had some time to spare, so we went for the one hour cruise.

Lake Geneva is very big, and this tour stays within the Petit-Lac (small lake). The main points of interest are highlighted over the loud speaker, but make sure to pick up the pamphlet on the boat as well, as the announcements were hard to hear. Try to get a spot on top of the boat on one of the deck chairs for the most relaxing view.

We did not have a lot of time in Geneva, and this was a nice way to see the highlights and rest our feet.

The boat departs every hour on the hour between 10am - 5pm from Mont-Blanc and Jardin Anglais. The cost is 16 CHF for adults and 8 CHF for children, round trip.
