We took the longer of the two cruises on Lac d"Annecy. The guide only spoke French but gave English-speaking passengers a printed English script so we could follow the tour. There were lots of interesting facts and figures in the brochure. Lac Annecy is beautiful and the tour is reasonably priced and well worth it. My only regret is that... More

Great excursion. We took the "omnibus" tour, a bit limited in June as bought aren't too frequent. However, don't let this stop you. We caught the 10.30am and enjoyed 45 mins cruising before hopping off at Talloires. We slowly explored this gorgeous village on the lake, enjoyed a pastis and then had a marvellous lunch at Cafe de la Place.... More

Whether by boat or by car, a tour around the lake is always a great experience. A word of caution however: if you try to drive around the lake during the summer, you risk spending a looong time in traffic. Oh, and beware of bikers.

My son and I hired bikes and covered half of the the lake. It's so easy due.to the cycle route which follows the lake perimeter. We then came back and did a two hour boat cruise with my wife. It's so relaxing and the boat was large and.well maintained. My 6 year old son got a little bored at the... More

It is a 42 km ride around the lake, medium difficulty if you choose to go via Annecy then Annecy le vieux, if you go the other way around it is much more difficult. We loved the surroundings - this was the best thing in Annecy.

This is a great way to spend a sunny afternoon, the route around the lake is over 50% cycle path with more cycle path being constructed this spring. Plenty of places to stop and all with beautiful views of the lake.
