What people are saying about Haute-Savoie

A very complete tour... Chamonix is a beautiful town, the stay is short and quick for everything there is to see. the views from the train and cable car really great. A 100% recommended tour.

A scenic trip between shores, the ferry was very comfy and on time. We enjoyed being on and enjoyed our time in Evian.

The guide (person) was great and the printed guide was super helpful. I'd totally recommend this trip.
