Discover two towns, two countries and two lakes in just one day during a tour of Geneva and Annecy with a cruise on Lake Geneva! 

Start your visit with a bus tour of Geneva’s monuments such as the Jet d’Eau Fountain, The Horloge Fleurie flower clock and the St. Pierre Cathedral. Then take the tourist train and head to Geneva’s Old Town to see The University of Geneva, The Parc des Bastions and even The Reformation Wall. 

After your visit, set off on your hour long cruise of Lake Geneva (optional) and admire the town’s most beautiful sites from the water, including The United Nations Offices and the Little Mermaid Statue.

After the cruise, enjoy some free time before getting on a bus to Annecy in France. 

Less than an hour’s drive from Geneva, discover "The Venice of The Alps", its walks, parks and Lake.
