Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Climb aboard a luxury coach at a central location in Geneva and commence your panoramic sightseeing tour of the city. Gaze out of the window at significant landmarks like the Flower Clock (L’horloge Fleurie), the UN headquarters and the beautiful English Garden (Jardin Anglais) and listen to captivating commentary before disembarking to travel by tram to some of the city’s secret spots. 

Explore the ambient tangle of the Old Town on a guided walking tour and see impressive historical monuments like Cathedral St Pierre, the Barbier-Mueller Museum, Maison Tavel and Place du Bourg-de-Four. If you chose to upgrade, head to the shores of Lake Geneva to enjoy a tranquil cruise over the shimmering surface of the water. 

After admiring scenery backed by the snow-capped spires of the Alps, enjoy some leisurely free time to eat lunch (own expense) and then return to the coach to cross the border over to France. 

Arrive in Annecy, an alluring Alpine town thronged with vibrant colored houses and medieval monuments, and follow your guide on an explorative walk through the Old Town. Capture photographs of the iconic Palais d’Isle, a 12th-century fortress whose vertiginous perch affords spectacular views of the city, and browse the exhibits within Château d’Annecy to gain insight into the rich history of the region. 

Return to the coach in the late afternoon and relax during the scenic journey back to your original departure point in Geneva.

A great tour! Gabriel was amazing with all his knowledge about Annecy and Geneva. Really enjoyed learning so much. Tip: bring Euros for Annecy or credit card. I was also asked to show my COVID vaccine card when I ordered at a restaurant in Annecy.

Well organised and followed as described. We started in Annecy as the first part. The Geneva Tour was actually a separate tour which was done after our Annecy tour. Enough time was spent in Annecy. Always plan ahead with the weather :)

Good morning, thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoy both tours. It is a pretty city with the canals and old architecture. Some people keep going with Geneva city tour and some don't, it's actually an option. It seemds that you had good weather so we are glad you enjoyed your day. Have a nice holiday!

Geneva city tour & lake cruise not that great.

Tour to Annecy excellent with lots of information from a very chatty tour guide but lots of time to explore. Geneva city tour & optional harbour cruise quite disappointing. City tour not many photo stops & English commentary on mini train not functioning. Tour guide did her best to improvise.however. Tour didn't finish at bus depot as advertised & harbour cruise drop off was on opposite side of bridge.

Annecy is a very pretty old town and well worth the visit. The day we were there there was an interesting street market for local produce. The afternoon tour of Geneva and the lake cruise made for a long day, but we enjoyed it very much. Guide very talkative.

The tour starts in Geneva, historical with all the world headquarters there. On to Annecy, pretty little town, a but overrated I think, no one the less, it was something to do. Returned to Geneva. Got on a boat and had a nice trip on the lake.
