Hi bcandfm -
<<"Thanks for the clarification. Would you also recommend getting off the boat in Yvoire, touring the town, and continuing to Geneva by local train? Thanks.">>
If I were considering the kind of trip that you are discussing, I'd check out the geography on a map that helps with transit connections, and I 'd be looking at the SBB ( or CFF, in French) timetable. The time table will help with connections between France and Switzerland, and I'd not be surprised if it does French trains in the area near the lake.
The map that I would use is Map.search.CH,because it can give a lot of transport information:
I have used the menu under "Points of Interest" to turn on Traffic.
If you zoom in enough to get the icons separated, and mouse over them, you get near-tem transport schedules.
And, if you zoom in to the correct level, train lines appear. The only problem is that it doesn't really give much map information about France. But, there is enough in this region near the lake and Switzerland. So, if you play with the map you will find that there is no rail service to Yvoire, and the the nearest rail station is at Perrignier, about 10 km away.
