Annecy is nice but too crowded. Our guide Gabriel was fantastic. Unfortunately, the lake cruise was boring.

Well organised and a excellent tour guide Benjamin. Annecy is a very picturesque spot worth visiting

Honestly, if you're looking to save money, I recommend taking a Flixbus from Geneva to Annecy for 5 euros - it's a lot cheaper than over a 100 for this tour and it takes you to the exact same place! Our tour guide was lovely and 100% a gem, but for those looking to travel and not spend unnecessary money, I'd skip this one. The tour itself in Annecy is relatively short, only about 30 minutes out of the entire duration of this experience. Annecy can very much be explored on your own and that way you have time to grab a pint and enjoy the atmosphere on your own, without doing the tour and then being rushed for photo ops and a meal. I did like the Geneva tour, so maybe the ideal experience is to go to Annecy on your own and then book the Geneva tour with the same company. That way, you get the most out of your money.

Our driver and tour host did well considering, this is NOT against them. I have done tours in several countries now, and this company has been the worst in delivery. Zero signage letting you know you’re in the right place, no real history of area presented ( which is half the reason for booking for me) and overall poorly organized. We booked for the Geneva and Annecy tour and were shuffled between two different tour buses, the first (to Annecy) was TINY and had no restroom despite being the location that needed about an hour to travel to. However, for the Geneva tour it was a much larger bus that did include a bathroom. Very little time in Annecy for a “day trip” about 2 hours in town only. Would not recommend booking this company for any tours. Just book a train ticket to Annecy ( much less expensive) and make your own itinerary. Tour of Geneva, not worth it. Just walk around the city and use any “travel guide” to find points of interest.

I can say: Annecy was beautiful, and I'm so glad I took the opportunity to go. It was the arrangement of the tour itself that was a problem. I thought I had booked a full-day experience, returning home around 6pm. But when I got on the tour bus, everyone informed me that no, we would be done at 2pm. We went to Annecy, returned, and were all dismissed and went our own way. I ended up hiking the hill to Saint-Pierre with a few friends I had made on the tour, and 15 minutes later, my phone rang: It was the tour guide, wanting to know why I wasn't on the bus for the second half of the tour. Apparently these were 2 different tour experiences packaged as one? Whatever it is, the setup is terrible and I feel scammed that I paid for a full day and then missed out on half my tour due to incredible disorganization and terrible communication. I feel less bad because I really enjoyed experiencing Geneva with my new friends, and the tour guide was somewhat difficult to understand anyway. But please do not pull this bait-and-switch of a "combined" tour without being more clear about what's going on.
