“Swiss Riviera Wine Tours – S for stimulating, R for resourceful, W for worth every cent, T for tremendous.
The four or us were privileged to spend 4 hours in the company of Nicolas and Lloyd who, after a most warm welcome when they picked us up, guided, informed, entertained and interested us.
Impossible not to be taken up by their own natural enthusiasm. They were mines of information not only on wine-making and tasting but on the historical and geographical aspects of the region. Never a dull moment, thanks also to their sense of humour!
Excellent value for money.”
We selected Swiss Riviera tour to help us with the organization of a company day in the Lavaux. The team was very reactive to our request and we quickly defined a tour that fitted our expectations. On the D Day, we had last minute changes that the team resolved very efficiently. The organizers present during the tour were always available for explanations. The day was perfect and we only had positive feedbacks from our employees. We will definitely recommend Swiss Riviera Wine Tours to other companies.

We wish to thank Swiss Riviera Wine Tours for the excellent organisation and warm welcome you gave to us all.
Despite being a group of over 60 guests, you managed to make the experience both informative and intimate.
The added plus of the wonderful weather and being able to watch the competitors of the Bol d’Or yacht race from the terrace of the exclusive winery where we had our lunch made the day one to remember.
A special thanks to Nicolas for his patience and good advice!
My heartfelt thanks to Nicolas and the team at Swiss Riviera Wine Tours for a wonderful evening. The location was impressive, everyone really appreciated the country style atmosphere and the excellent wines produced at the vineyards. Everything was perfect from start to finish. Thank you all for making our group so welcome ! The rain may have stopped us walking around the vineyard but there was plenty of wine, cheese and good company to make it a real pleasure. A really well-organized evening that was a great success!
Thanks again Nicolas !
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.
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.
The tour with Swiss Riviera Wine Tours through the Lavaux vineyard terraces was the ideal kick-off to our event in Montreux. Nicolas and his crew were able to gain the attention of our guests right from the beginning and shared their knowledge of winemaking in the region in a well-balanced mix of facts and anecdotes. They proved to be excellent hosts and entertainers and I am convinced, the tour left lasting impressions with our guests.
