My 9 year old son and I were traveling through Annecy and booked this self guided tour with fun facts/ puzzles as a way to get to know the city that also kept him engaged. Pros: you can use it on multiple days to finish the entire game. Cons: it may be hard to finish the game within a few hours as we were trying to do. Also we could have got by with just one persons worth of the activity as we were solving it together, instead of purchasing two individual’s worth of it. Otherwise it was informative of the local history abc landmarks. Hope this is helpful. Have a great time!!

Fun activity to get to know Annecy. Would recommend if you want to combine history with a bit of competition. We did it in about 1,5 hours, without taking a break. Not sure if this would be an activity to keep you occupied for a whole morning/afternoon.

World City Trail helped us explore the city of Annecy in around 1,5 hours, with a dog, without needing to go in any shops or attractions. The app gives you information about the places your visiting, as well as some small puzzles that you get to solve.
