We took a tour on the "Cygne" around Lac d'Annecy one Sept. afternoon. Very pleasant trip with good narration. Only negative is the lack of seating on the top deck. If you got a seat, everyone else just stood in front of you.

As far a lake tours on a boat goes this tour was ok not memorable! Tickets for two adults 39.60 Euros. The boat does stop at many small towns around the lake to pick up and drop off people. Suggest you check at the time you purchase tickets which ones you can stop then rejoin the boat tour. Talloires was one of the places we could get off and spend 40 minutes walking around, it was lovely worth having a look at enough time to walk around and to buy a coffee to take away. This tour would be a good way to see some towns around the lake. If you speak French this would be an advantage when buying tickets as not much English is spoken.

Took the 1 hour cruise to get oriented to the area. Cruise points out the mountain peaks and towns surrounding the lake. Great views of mountains and castles.

Our cruise on La Belle Etoile left at 5.30pm. E16 per person. The boat was immaculately presented and clean. Fresh paint on all the steelwork. There is a commentary which is in French and then repeated in English. I speak enough French to know that the English translation is near enough to an exact translation of what the French get.Other reviewers have complained about the monolingual commentary and have suggested that the crew provided it. Not any more. It was a warm night so we sat outside at the front for all but the last 15 minutes when the wind got up. The plastic seats are adequately comfortable.The one hour on the Lake is beautiful and commentary gives just the right amount of history and information. We have done cruises like this in other parts of the world and think that Compagnie des Bateaux du Lac d'Annecy have got it absolutely right..
