We will meet at the Vevey Funicular station and take a short ride on the funicular through the vineyards to Chardonne. This is NOT at the main Vevey train station. x From there we will walk through the UNESCO listed Lavaux region where I will take you to specific spots offering great photos opportunities - they will look fantastic on your Instagram and Facebook accounts and you will be the envy of all your friends back home! x Along the way, we will have a carefully tailored morning snack with local wine and produce tasting, what we call an "aperitif" (allergies or special diets will be catered for if communicated in advance). x We will continue our tour by walking to the Rivaz jetty in time to board one of the fantastically beautiful boats that service the Lake Léman. The tour ends when we disembark the boat at the Vevey market place at noon. If you wish to continue your journey by boat to Montreux or further you may do so as you can purchase your ticket on board for the extra journey. x I have done this tour many times with friends in the past and have developed a very good itinerary to make the most of your time in the vineyards and some of its picturesque villages. x In order to keep the tour as personalised as possible, spaces are strictly limited.
My name is Francoise. I'm a 5 stars Airbnb Plus host in Melbourne, Australia, and I often take my guests sightseeing. I was born and raised in the Lavaux region. I have walked the countless vineyards paths many times, with family and friends, which is why I have now developed the perfect itinerary to make for a decent walk (mostly downhill with a couple of small challenging hills) whilst offering amazing photo opportunities. As part of my degree in Travel and Tourism I have studied Tour Guiding and have taken groups through sights in Melbourne. This tour is available for Summer 2019, when I will be based in the region.
A generous aperitif which will consist of local wine (a non alcoholic beverage can be arranged on request) and local produce
Unlike other tours, there are no extra costs for tickets - I take care of everything and it's all inclusive in the tour…
I will organise all transportation tickets for the funicular and the CGN boat cruise. If these forms of public transports…
Each guest will receive a souvenir as a memento of their time in the region
We will ride the Vevey to Chardonne funicular, which has been operating for over 100 years. We will stroll through some of the terraced vineyards of Switzerland's stunning UNESCO listed Lavaux region. A generous "aperitif" will be served offering local wine (non alcoholic option available on demand), cheese and local produce before we board the CGN boat back to Vevey where the tour will conclude.
