Hi Tbone1311. Yes, a train from Lausanne to Vevey or Chateau de Chillon will be quicker. The timetables mentioned above allow you to find the differences between boat and train connections. I'm not familiar with the wine festival in Vevey, so unfortunately I can't comment on that. I agree with you that planning all three in one day would be a bit too much, even with the train instead of boat connection. A visit to the Chateau de Chillon easily takes 1-2 hours, and even that's a pretty tight time frame. I guess you'd want to spend a couple of hours, or at least 1 hour, at the wine festival too. It would be a challenge to add a trip to Gruyères on the same day, so I'm afraid it's wiser to choose ;-).
