Although the starting point and terminus for the lake trip is Annecy, you can get on or off at any of the resorts round the lake. The trips go in a clockwise direction so, if you get on at the other end of the lake, you will have to get off at Annecyfor at least a couple of hours before... More

We had a most enjoyable morning out on Lake Annecy. The lake itself is spectacular. My only complaint is that the commentary is only in French. Not very thoughtful for the masses of tourists from other countries and it only takes a bit of thought to overcome this issue.

Lovely, relaxing tour of the lake! I unfortunately don't know much French so I couldn't understand barely any of the tour but I was mainly there for the boat ride, sights, and photo opportunities. Lovely thing to do on a sunny day :)

We rode the circuit boat trip so that we could jump on and off the boat to hike to a waterfall at the town of Tailloires. After our hike, we enjoyed seeing more of the lake and its many towns.

L'office du Tourisme in Thones was very helpful and told us about Roul' ma Poule at Lake Annecy where we hired bikes, helmets and locks for our family of four. The bikes were in excellent condition and the young woman who served us was fabulous, really helpful, spoke excellent English and really couldn't do enough for us. We enjoyed a... More

Wonderful tour by boats available on the lake and on the historical centre. The boat takes about 1 hour to do the tour and during winter and springer is better stay inside the boat due to the cold weather.

This is an hour long circuit of the lake. Its a bit boring if you happen to sit on the right hand side - as everything to see is on the left hand side. When the boat is returning - again the left hand side get all the views/photo ops. It was a bit annoying to queue for 30 mins... More

We spent several days in Annecy. We first toured the lake by boat on a 2 hour tour which was great and gave us the opportunity to get our bearings. The following day we hired bikes and rode around the lake. It was a mostly gentle ride but did have one more strenuous section. Much of the ride is on... More
