  • Overview & Itinerary


    Spend a day at the foot of the French Alps in Annecy, an ancient town torn from the pages of a fairy tale.

    This Venice of the Alps, with its interlocking canals, tiny cafes, and medieval architecture will transport you to another time.

    Lake Annecy, France’s second largest lake, shimmers blue and green beneath august mountain peaks.


    You will be picked up in a comfortable minibus from your Lyon hotel for this Annecy and Perouges – Private Tour.

    Kick-start your day with a visit to the Old Annecy Town in the morning with your English-speaking guide. Fall under the spell of medieval arcades, lively street markets and historic bridges arching over the crisscrossing canals. You will be led through the quaint streets and quays burgeoning with flowers. Take a one-hour boat cruise on Lake Annecy, which affords stunning views of sovereign Alpine peaks. The piercing emerald waters will make it clear why it’s earned a reputation as Europe’s cleanest lake.

    Eat lunch in Old Town, where Savoy regional specialties highlight menus starting from €20 (payable direct).

    In the afternoon, your guide will lead you through the narrow cobblestone streets of Perouges. Visit the Fortress Church and admire the medieval architecture of ancient houses dating back to XV and XVI centuries. Enlighten yourself with the French history and don’t forget to carry souvenirs back home as you stroll through craft shops and boutiques.

    Your minibus will drop you off at your hotel in Lyon.

      Oliver, our guide was lovely and very knowledgeable. Both perouge and annecy were extremely beautiful and I am so glad I spent the money to see these places....
