Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your way to the Geneva Bus Station, where you meet a driver for your departure to Annecy. Bring your passport for this tour, as you cross the French border part way through the drive.

Pass remarkable views of the Alps throughout the drive, then arrive to a picturesque scene of colorful houses and flower-filled balconies. You have plenty of time to explore on your own.

See the Palais de l’Isle, a 12th-century island fortress, or head to the equally historic Château d’Annecy, which commands sweeping views from a hilltop perch. Stretch your legs on the pedestrian and bike path that wraps around the lake, which is the third-largest in France, or try local cuisine in a canal-side cafe. Meet back up in the evening to board the coach and begin the return trip to Geneva, where this tour concludes at the original departure point.

Annecy

Annecy trip was disappointing. Annecy is very touristy and crowded with the main attractions being able to be covered in no time at all. If you are after a pretty and busy lunch spot then this is for you. We didn't try any lake activities but they did look enticing. The tour company itself isn't great - they did not send a return bus but instead sent a very small mini van to collect well after pick up time. Very squashed return trip.

Good morning, Thank your for your review. We are sorry you didn't like the city. Annecy is a must see, the famous side brings a little crowd of course. The main streets does attract lots of tourist, but there is lots of small street to find a quiet restaurant. If it's in the top 5 to see around Geneva, you must expect some tourists to visit. The size of the bus depends on the number of clients, we are not sending a 50 seats bus for 5 persons. It involves environement, gas emission and all our vehicules even smaller are Mercedes so they usually comfortable. We hope you still enjoed your holiday and wish you a nice day

The staff seemed surprised I was there despite having pre booked- 4 people on bus. Departed 9.30am arr 10.30am, bus modern, clean and driver nice. Return time option confusion by staff,1.30pm or 6pm, pass majority rules. One too short other too long. Get bus from bus station not this company!!
