This was a fun & quick trip to Annecy! A great way to explore somewhere new without the hassle of having to rent a car. Our guide was nice and we learned a few things along the way. She gave us info on the bus and a quick tour of the area (while walking up the hill to the castle). Then we were able to break off and explore on our own. My husband and I walked around the town, went into shops, went to the park, and got lunch & some amazing ice cream! Definitely worth the trip!

Had a lovely time exploring Annamasse, France! It’s a beautiful little town, very colorful, lots of cafes and stores to check out. If you’re looking for a day trip outside of Geneva, highly recommend this. Plan to wear comfortable shoes as you’ll be walking around a lot.

A beautiful city with so mulch to see, we went on Sunday and the market was on which made it even better.

Great half-day trip! Beautiful little town. Zara was a fantastic guide! Highly recommend
