Climb aboard a luxury coach at a central location in Geneva and commence your panoramic sightseeing tour of the city. Gaze out of the window at significant landmarks like the Flower Clock (L’horloge Fleurie), the UN headquarters and the beautiful English Garden (Jardin Anglais) and listen to captivating commentary before disembarking to travel by tram to some of the city’s secret spots.
Explore the ambient tangle of the Old Town on a guided walking tour and see impressive historical monuments like Cathedral St Pierre, the Barbier-Mueller Museum, Maison Tavel and Place du Bourg-de-Four. If you chose to upgrade, head to the shores of Lake Geneva to enjoy a tranquil cruise over the shimmering surface of the water.
After admiring scenery backed by the snow-capped spires of the Alps, enjoy some leisurely free time to eat lunch (own expense) and then return to the coach to cross the border over to France.
Arrive in Annecy, an alluring Alpine town thronged with vibrant colored houses and medieval monuments, and follow your guide on an explorative walk through the Old Town. Capture photographs of the iconic Palais d’Isle, a 12th-century fortress whose vertiginous perch affords spectacular views of the city, and browse the exhibits within Château d’Annecy to gain insight into the rich history of the region.
Return to the coach in the late afternoon and relax during the scenic journey back to your original departure point in Geneva.
