Is there any Hop On Hop Off site seeing bus service available at Zurich, Interlaken, Lucerne, Montreux and Geneva? If so can you give me the details?

Hi Ajittipnis,

Apparently there is something like that in Geneva (thanks Snowman!), but I haven't come across many of these in Switzerland. Swiss cities are relatively small, with narrow streets, one-way streets and pedestrian zones. The can easily be explored on foot. Here are two examples:

<<"Swiss cities are relatively small,">>

And, the really interesting old towns within those cities are smaller!

They are best seen on foot.

Luzern is a prime example.

There is a Trolley tour in Zurich but I don't believe it is hop-on/off.

And, the holder of a Swiss Travel Pass, or a day-card or 24 hour card for the transit system of a cities such as Geneva and Zürich can use the dense network of frequent trams and buses to hop on and hop off. No need to show your pass or ticket unless asked. You must buy your ticket, if you need one, from a machine at the tram stop or the main station, , before you get on the tram/bus. A map showing the routes is useful to locate the particular tram/bus line(s) that serves the place you are interested in.. But, if you ride without one, or, a ticket whose time has expired, the occasional inspector or ticket checker will fine you on the order of 50 CHF if he or she catches you.
