My husband and I were lucky to come across Swiss Riviera Wine Tours through a mutual friend. After spending a few days at the Montreux Jazz Festival, we spotted Nic's beautiful Riva boat skimming through the water. A day later, my husband and I hopped on "Sunshine", and enjoyed one of the most memorable, fun and scenic hours during our summer holiday. We drove by stunning homes, passed through the tranquil natural reserve across Montreux, stopped at the Chillon Castle and enjoyed a grand time admiring our surroundings. Seeing the wine town of Villeneuve at the very eastern edge of Lake Geneva is a treat not to be missed. The sun shimmered over the lake showing us the densely planted hillsides of Lavaux, and the transition into the cooler, more sheltered Chablais wine country. What made our time extra special was Nic's naturally accommodating nature as well as his rich knowledge of everything we saw, from the rare types of animal species found at the natural reserve to the interesting history of Montreux as well as other information about the charming and diverse Swiss municipality. All in all, our time on the Riva was one of the highlights of our trip! If you find yourself in Montreux, Switzerland, I would definitely contact Swiss Riviera Wine Tours for a chance to experience Montreux and its alluring surroundings from the best view possible.
