The Palace of Nations is the second largest building complex in Europe. Two intentions were later added to the building after transferring to United Nations. Underneath the Palace of Nations’ foundation stone is a time capsule containing a document listing the names of the League of Nations member states, a copy of the covenant of the League, and specimen coins of all the countries represented at the league's tenth assembly.

Aditi's 9 days trip to GenevaServices and response of travel agent was very helpful. But the problem was with cab in both ways. Since the flight got delayed while going we didn’t get the cab... so we only paid for that . And while coming cab didn’t come to pick us from hotel and support team asked to go by our own since we need to reach the airport on time. Till now did not get any refund for this. Among all the hotels Vienna and Salzburg hotels were good but Budapest and Prague hotels were ok. Locations of all the hotels were very good . Since the flight got delayed and we missed the connecting flight and then took the next flight and reached Budapest late, we missed cruise also that day. For this also we paid extra to go into the cruise next day. While travelling from Budapest to Vienna our train got delayed too much and due to which we couldn’t see the palace for which we were already having the ticket . And also we just got the Hop On Hop Off in Vienna only for half an hour due to train delaying.

Bhavik's 5 days trip to GenevaI would like to give the feedback on the trip i opted for my honeymoon from feb.4th to feb.12th to switzerland and paris from Shubham Hubholiday . Would like to thanks shubham and mention that it was very well organized and itenary provided was equally helpful. All the arrangements by shubham were done beforehand which helped a lot. Whenever i needed any information, help and support from your end.. you were available to help me out. In short, without your help and support, this trip would not have been that much enjoyable and easy going. Thank you for your support..!!
Utkarsh's 4 days trip to GenevaIt was good Europe trip. The most important thing is how trip advisor solves your query and make a reasonable price trip. I was all time good support from Memorable Vacation consultant. One of the hotel location was good in Interlaken while another in Zurich was bit far from city. Overall it was good trip and special thanks to Varsha Rahuja (My trip advisor) for good Itinerary and positive response and support. I would definitely recommend for others.

Rakesh's 5 days trip to GenevaThis was the best trip and every second and arrangements by the trip team was awesome.
Anand's 8 days trip to GenevaThe service was fine ... Though we did not have a good experience at the hotel in Paris.... Considering it was a honeymoon trip,you cannot have separate beds and such a small room that cannot even accommodate our bags... We were not even aware about the station in Switzerland..it was wen we googled and asked the agent, we came to know about it... These things could have been kept in mind..other than that it was good. Switzerland
Natasha Anthony Vaz
Natasha's 8 days trip to GenevaIn Rome, timings to Colosseum should have been earlier or on the previous day as it closed at 3:30 pm sharp. In Switzerland, the half day city tour of Zurich and Lucerne cruise was a repetition as same was covered on the previous day except for the cruise. All in all the organizing of the tour was good and Arindham did a good job.
