Totally recommend, beautiful scenery. Breathtaking views on the way to Annecy. Many options for things to do at the old town. Don’t forget to try a croissant from one of the boulangeries.

Brilliant trip to Annecy. Perfect from start to finish. Annecy is well worth a visit, it’s beautiful. Would love to return one day! Would recommend this trip.

Our tour guide Sarah was informative and witty. Loved her, loved the group. Samuel drove for us and i fell asleep on the ride to and from annecy.

Really lovely to see! If you go for the Christmas market make sure you have cash (euros only!)

Lovely day out in a beautiful part of the country! It was raining, but not too bad.
