Tour description provided by Viator

Immerse yourself in the scenery of Château de Chillon and Montreux on this full-day tour from Geneva. Head first to Chaplin's World to hear about artist Charlie Chaplin, and then make your way past the wine region of Lavaux. You'll also take a guided tour of Château de Chillon, a beautiful and atmospheric lakeside castle, and spend some time exploring Montreux.
Begin with a comfortable coach from Geneva and head to Chaplin’s World: a site dedicated to Charlie Chaplin, the artist and man. Embark on an extraordinary adventure across time and through the magical world of cinema. Prepare to be moved by one of the most surprising artists of the 20th century through the sets of his greatest films at the Hollywood-style Studio. Next, ride along the World Heritage Site of Lavaux, also called 'the wine road': a vineyard region with terraces. Arrive at the castle of Chillon for a 1-hour visit. Located on a small island in the far western end of Lake Geneva between Montreux and Villeneuve, this romantic castle was of strategic importance in controlling trade in the Lake Geneva region, and its dungeons inspired Lord Byron. Your last stop will be in Montreux, a glamorous tourist resort. Learn about all the great artists who have visited this place, such as Aretha Franklin, Ella Fitzgerald, BB King, Ray Charles, and more. The emblem of the city is the statue of Freddie Mercury, who lived several years in Montreux and recorded his last album with Queen in the Mountain Studio, which is in the Casino. You will have the chance to visit Queen’s old studio and wander through the streets full of fancy shops and landmarks of the famous jazz festival.Your trip will conclude with transportation back to your original departure point.
