Great tour guide - Sarah and driver Bebys (?). Great day out with info from guide on route. Small tour in Annecy followed by a few hours of own time to have lunch. Great trip but if you’ve not been to Annecy before, 1/2 day trip is probably not enough. It wasn’t too busy when went 7 January.

It was a quick trip. We left at 9 am and were back by 2 pm so you still had time to do things in Geneva. Old Town of Annecy can be seen in a short amount of time. The views on the lake are beautiful. Guide and driver were friendly.

Our tour guide was lovely, she was ver knowledgeable and friendly. The town of Annecy is absolutely gorgeous, we loved the day trip! Our only constructive feedback was having more time in the town itself, we arrived back to Geneva ahead of schedule and thought the trip was overpriced for what it was. Would recommend but maybe make it a full day trip vs half.

Annecy is really a beautiful fantastic old city. I enjoyed the beautiful lake and charming old houses there.

Exceeded expectations, Annecy was stunning. Views spectacular. Our guide Zara was bubbly and very knowledgeable. Bus driver Italian Daniel was very good! Would highly recommend this trip! Only thing could be improved would have been an extra hour or two there, as trip was 5 hours including hour each way travelling.
