Really excellent experience. The tour was great in a comfortable bus and was good to hear about some of the facts from the tour guide. A small thing to note is that if you visit Annecy on a Sunday morning, the market place can be quite overwhelming and chaotic if you have young children with you. We visited the museum and old prison as well and enjoyed it. All in all, a lovely experience and will recommend it.

The trip to Annecy with Swiss tours was absolutely stunning! When we arrived the Carnival was going on so we got to experience what that was like which was incredible. Our tour guide Gabriel was very knowledgable and nice too made the trip very interesting. Only downside was we couldn’t stay longer!

Would recommend this trip to anyone! A lovely drive there and back which doesn’t take too long and plenty of time to walk around and explore Annecy. Our guide was so helpful and gave us a 20 minute tour when we got there and then we could go and explore on our own. A perfect day trip from Geneva and so glad we did it!
