    Very historic old town to visit. Several blocks away is the lake which is relaxing and scenic. Boat tours are available.

    I booked this at the last minute since I had an extra half day to kill in Geneva. Very easy drive to Annecy, got some basic info from the driver/guide via commentary enroute & his short 30-minute walking tour. I recommend going to the hilltop chateau just for the view from the outside, the chateau itself is an art gallery (no real views or towers to climb from inside). We went on a Sunday & we’re pleased to find a street market going on. Had just enough time for a quick lunch (most restaurants don’t open till 12noon) and a walk to the lovers bridge.

    Annecy is a very cool city that is well worth the visit. I love historical places so walking the narrow medieval style streets and looking around at the very old buildings was lots of fun. I thought our guide was very good, though she had a bit of an issue with turning her head towards whatever she was describing, and due to wearing a large furry hood you couldn't hear a word she said when she did that. I got the gist of it all though. If you're planning to do this trip, the key to know is when to abandon the tour and do your own thing. I recommend that as soon as you finish at the castle on the hill that you take off and explore a bit on your own, meeting up with the tour back at the bus to go back to Geneva. We had a great time exploring a bit more of the city and then having just enough time to order a meal before returning to the bus. I took away one star because the trip started like 30 minutes late and I don't believe the value of that time was recovered to us, the tour ended at the normal time so we just missed out on half an hour. This was apparently due to a bus breakdown, so perhaps not entirely within the company's control, but still diminished the value of the trip.

    What a beautiful nornjng tour this was. Our guide took us to the most beautiful spots in Annecy. Would highly recommend

    Just walking through this quaint town was a wonderful experience! The tour guide was wonderful. The only complaint, if you will, was that the timing was so short. Two hours to walk around and have lunch is do-able but rushed. A full day option or maybe three and a half hours to walk around would be terrific!

    Amazing place, worth visiting. The tour guide will take you through the main areas and then you have 2 hours to wonder the streets of Annecy. The tour guide was fun and very engaging.
