Well organised tour. Guide was Zara, she was very good had a great deal of knowledge about the area and made sure we all knew what we could do in our free time and where to meet the bus. Orlando was a great and safe driver. Annecy is beautiful and would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone with an afternoon to spare.
