We recommend flying into the Geneva Airport (GVA).
We offer two complimentary ExperiencePlus! shuttle options on Day 1 of the tour. Reservations required. Please make your shuttle reservation by emailing us no later than 30 days prior to your tour start date:
- Option A: 10:30 a.m. shuttle from the Meeting Hotel in Geneva, the
Kipling Hotel Geneva
- Option B: 11:30 a.m. shuttle from the Geneva airport
If you can’t meet the shuttle on Day 1, you will be responsible for your own transportation to Yvoire, which is about a 1 hour drive from the Geneva Airport and costs around 150-200 CHF.
We will be glad to arrange your pre- and post-tour stay at the Meeting Hotel for you upon request. Note that we will not sleep there as a group and the stay there is not included in the tour price.
How to get to the Meeting Hotel:
- Taxi from the Geneva Airport to the meeting hotel (20 min/CHF 55)
or public transportation:
- Train from Geneva Airport to Gare de Geneve station (8 min/ every 15 min/CHF 3 or free*)
- Walk from the Gare de Geneve station to the hotel (5 min).
*Note: Alongside regular tickets, Unireso, the network of public transport operators, offers free tickets, which can be claimed if you arrive to Geneva airport by plane. There are ticket machines for free tickets available at the baggage claim. Have your valid plane ticket ready in case tickets are inspected. Both regular and free tickets are valid for a certain amount of time after purchase, i.e. 90 minutes anad 80 minutes, respectively. The airport is in Zone 10, so you will need a zone 10 ticket to get into central Geneva.
