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.

One of my favorite places. I loved walking around Annecy. And Geneva remains one of my favorite cities in Switzerland.

I really enjoyed this tour. Annecy is amazing. Definitely take the Cruise as well. We met some lovely people and our tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. I never felt rushed or like I didn't have enough time to see all I wanted to see. Thank you so much!

The Annecy tour was great. For the Geneva city tour, I wish we were given time to get down to take photos too instead of just riding on the bus.

I have been using Viator since 2012 and have never been disappointed. We had only 2 days in Geneva, therefore I took Geneva Annecy tour with Lake Geneva cruise. The rendezvous point was at a central location and easily accessible. The tour bus was very comfortable, punctual and the guide was superb, narrating the history of Geneva and commenting on the buildings on the way. Drive to Annecy is very picturesque. After 30 min of guided tour in Annecy we had about 2 hours on our own walking around the commercial area and traditional markets. The entire experience was fantastic. Back in Geneva we stopped at the United Nations. We saw the major landmarks of the Geneva city with brief description by the guide. The Lake Geneva cruise is a good experience, but you can do that on your own too. If you want to enjoy most in one day and in comfort, then this tour will meet your expectations.

Great tour, shame it rained ALL day long. Hector was a great guide, the only thing I would improve is making is a little clearer that the boat trip is in Geneva once you come back from the morning in Annecy, we thought for a moment we had missed our chance when we got back on the bus and only the later Geneva tour was mentioned.
The gap between the Annecy and Geneva tours is perhaps 20 minutes so would suggest going to grab lunch in Annecy, and the chain of Paul Bakeries takes credit cards if you didn't bring any Euros.

The day went very smooth and was definitely worth doing if you have one day in Geneva. We had the same guide for the entire day which was quite comforting. Annecy was beautiful and well worth seeing. The bus tour and tramway tours were a great way to see the main points of the city with some welcome stops to take photos. The lake cruise with a free drink was a perfect compliment to the day. Good value for money!

Hector was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Annecy is a beautiful city. I am not sure the tour bus drive by near the UN is necessary maybe spend more time in the city center with the boat ride at the beginning of the Geneva tour instead of the end.
