Geneva - Basel driver/tour/transfer

Jump to last reply

Wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a driver who could take us from Geneva to Basel with a day of touring along the way?

We fly into Geneva from the US in August and will there for a few days. Prefer to use trains/public transit to get around the lake. But then we eventually need to make our way up to Germany and rent a car for the rest of our time in Europe (and have to pick the car up in Germany to avoid the huge drop fees).

My current itinerary gives us a day to make our way from Geneva to Basel. Seems like there is plenty to see along the way - i.e. Gruyere and Bern. And we could rent a car for a day and drive ourselves. But by the time I rent an automatic, pay for gas, and park it for a night at the hotel in Basel it is looking like a $400 cost plus the hassle of getting and returning it. That still might be a lot less than a driver/tour guide will cost given how expensive Siwtzerland is, but want to get a few quotes and see what the difference is?

Goal would be to leave Geneva early and arrive in Basel with enough time to walk around for a few hours in the evening. Next day we will be taking a train from Basel to Freiburg to pick up the car.
