We tried to book a group tour with Swiss Riviera Wine Tours a day before the tour date. After submitting an inquiry online we received a prompt reply. The tours were full but given the ideal weather and conditions on Lake Geneva, Nicolas offered us a private tour using his magnificently restored 1966 Riva Super Florida powerboat. We would meet him at Vevey, tour the farmer’s market, have a picnic lunch, navigate up the western shore of Lake Geneva, and have a wine tasting during our tour of the famous Chateau de Chillon.
We were excited upon booking but little did we imagine how memorable the experience would be! It was, by far, one of the best tours among all our travels across continents. We enjoyed the weather, the lake, the boat, the scenery, the food, the wines, and above all, Nicolas’ company.
Thank you so much for a wonderful time! We surely look forward to another visit.
SELF-GUIDED WINE TOUR
A driver will bring you & your guests directly to a winery where you will enjoy a personalized tasting of the Lavaux wines.
Your on-site host will be happy to present 4 wines typical of the terraced vineyards of the Lavaux wine region. They’ll take a moment to explain the heritage of each serving & history of the Lavaux.
You’ll have time to roam about and take pictures of the majestic lake of Geneva & the mountains. Following your first tastings of “Chasselas” (the prime indigenous white grape of the Lavaux), you’ll enjoy further specialty wines accompanied by some light snacks including cheeses.

Swiss Riviera Wine Tours was strongly recommended by our concierge so we made an appointment. This private adventure was a pure treat! Our guide was friendly, funny and incredibly knowledgeable about the area and the wine. We did the Chablais tour in a private luxury van. It was too fantastic. We had to do another so we took the Lavaux tour too. We were immediately impressed by the views of the properties. We were able to see a lot more of the vineyards this way and it was nice to have someone who knew the good restaurants to enjoy the famous filet de perche.
The wines were delightful. The Chablais was shockingly fresh. Some had bright, luscious melon and papaya aromas. This wine is all about the texture. They had a great finish that lingers for a bit with good acidic structure. The Lavaux wines were lush with tastes of dried cinnamon, spices, cherries and just a slight herbaceous note. They had nice acidity and were really mouthwatering. All were wonderful on the palette, stretching out across your whole tongue and leaving you wanting more. I wish we could find more Swiss wines in California.
I guess we’ll just have to come back.
Thanks Nic and Swiss Riviera Wine Tours for an unforgettable experience. We cannot wait to see you again.
