Overall rating

The value for money is outstanding. Depending on the activities you choose you can save a lot. I've just done the math and we seem to have saved about 100 CHF per person with the 3 day pass. This despite the fact that one of our three days was a Monday when most attractions were closed. The only negative I can find is the way the pass is given to the customers printed on a common piece of paper that can easily be lost or damaged. It also has fixed dates printed on it. Usually city passes come on cards or apps that start running when you use them for the first time. For sure there are more activities available during the summer, however it's simply impossible to do them all and the highlights of our visit were a city tour in heavy snow and the cable car to snow covered Mt. Saleve. Even if we had only done these 2 activities we would still have saved money.

Highly recommended if you're planning to explore Geneva. You need to get the actual pass at the Geneva Tourist Office, which is a small office next to CGN ticket office in Mont Blanc area. If you loved chocolate, when you picked up the pass, get Choco Pass from the Tourist Office & you will get 20% discount (for the Choco Pass) with the City Pass.

Excellent stay, diverse, well served, oxygenating, safe, interesting sites; in addition, the city pass is activated as soon as you collect the ticket office, you benefit completely from the time offered, The cost of the city pass made it possible to accept the high cost of restaurants, We were very satisfied with the progress of the stay,

Excellent welcome from the Geneva Tourist Office. The pass pays off very quickly. I was able to visit several tourist places and take public transport. It was perfect.

If you’re in Geneva for a day or more, I would absolutely recommend this city pass.
