A boat ride on the lake is one of our favourite memories. There are small villages dotted all around the lake. Well worth taking the time and spending the money to do this.

Really loved this trip you saw so much more of the landscape and shoreline from the boat. Very good. It's a lovely way to spend some time.

A ‘Compagnie des Bateaux du Lac d’Annecy’ boat had just disgorged its passengers and a fresh mob surged to the gangway. The upturned hand of the Captain prevented boarding. A Group had priority went on first and occupied all the small front deck shepherded by a small but tough looking female Group Leader. The motley then elbowed their way aboard... More

If you are a bit sporty, it is not too difficult. The midway is on a bike path, so it's safe and cool. You're cycling along the lake and it's beautiful with the mountains!

There are 2 boat tours of different lengths. We took the shorter tour which lasted about an hour. We cruised the shore line most of the way down the lake. The lake narrows about 2/3 the way along and that was the point our boat turned and continued cruising the opposite shore back to the dock. The boat we were... More

When in Annecy, be sure to make time for the 2-hour, very enjoyable boat ride on Lac du Annecy! The 2-hour tour allows you to hop on/hop off wherever you want. We stopped in the picturesque village of Talloires and walked all around, and had cocktails in one of the pretty little restaurants on the little harbor. Wonderful!

Had not been back to Lac Annecy since I was a camper there in 1958. The boat tout is the way to see the lake surrounded by mountains. Sure drive around the lake but the best views are from on the water.

We had a one hour tour of the lake and it was nice to see the shore from a different perspective. The tour was in French so we couldn't understand the commentary which was a shame, but there was English language sheets of info to refer to.

We went on an hour cruise on a lovely day. We had tried to get the 2 hour one but it had sold out, so get your tickets early. A good way to see the sights of the lake and the various shoreline villages. Worth doing
