This was an excellent trip. Our only concern was the bus company trnasferring us to and from the airport were late collecting us.

Alton GB
Central Hostel is fine but has no air con, is on a noisy street and it was extremely hot! Don't bother with Adaptable travel's hostel organised breakfast at local cafe, one small croissant, cuppa and juice was simply not enough for teenagers so we ended up buying more at Lidl! Note that your visit to CERN will include 2 venues on the site which you cannot choose...unfortunately ours included the data centre - an hour spent looking down on a big room full of computers being talked at extremely quickly by an was underwhelming. Free travel in Geneva is great and includes most of the boats too. Visit to United Nations was a highlight - would recommend.

Adaptable travel have been so easy to work with - nothing is too much trouble. They even sent out free CERN workbooks and extra activities to do which made leading the trip so much easier. Will definitely be doing this same trip next year.
