Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked a water taxi from the campsite €17 each.
Pickup at 0900hrs and return from Annecy as told on board by the captain at 1315hrs.
Normal return was on booking form as 1300hrs.
We arrived for collection at 1255hrs and waited until1330hrs.
Eventually took a bus to return to campsite as taxi did not arrive.

The campsite did try to resolve the issue as apparently the taxi was to return at 1215 but unfortunately the water taxi company were not HELPFULL AND LIED IN SAYING WE WERE INFORMED THE THE RETURN WAS 1215.
TOTAL NONSENSE WE WERE TOLD 1315HRS ON BOARD
Cost us 34€ ONE WAY.
This could of been resolved but company totally unhelpfull yet very eagerly took our money.

Our guide and captain, Anise was excellent! She spoke very good English and was knowledgable about the history of the region. It was a very enjoyable experience!

Visited this beautiful lake and Annecy town as part of our Alpine Road trip. Car park is next to the lake. Option of taking smaller speed boat or taking the big cruising boat. With kids better to take the bigger one . Lake’s water is green, I was thinking it’s photoshopped but seeing it with my eyes I can tell you it’s picture perfect lake.

Although it’s in South France , It’s possible to do a day trip if you are visiting Geneva or any nearby Swiss city . Don’t miss this Alpine beauty if you are nearby

Costing 37€ the boat trip was great to get to Annecy although we caught the local bus for 7€ back to where we were staying and it had almost the same view.
Highly recommended for when visiting the area.

Thank you Cathy for your nice post. Indeed if you are sharing the price of the boat with all the passengers the trip or transfer is a really experience and not a simple transfer ! Hopefully we will see you on board to enjoy a discovery Lake. Look forward to hearing from you.

We were a group of 25 participants who stayed at Annecy while returning from Geneva. I must admit I didnt have much anticipation from a small town like Annecy. But I am glad that I was proven completely wrong. The place has an amazing earthly charm to it with its serene and soulful surroundings. My experience of the visit to Annecy Lake was very good. The operators there are very friendly and professional. We hired a speed boat for the lake tour and the experience was amazing. I recommend Lake Tour for anyone visiting Annecy.

Most relaxing in a positively storybook location! Everything was perfect and very easy to do. We travelled to Annecy on a bus tour from Geneva not know what to expect and are not planning a return trip just to Annecy. It is worth the visit and the Lake tour is a must.

Booking a 2-hour tour of Lake Annecy for a group of 11 people could not have easier, the staff was responsive and friendly. The boat was in excellent condition and very comfortable. Our pilot, Thibault, was really great. He spoke very good English, was friendly and accommodating, and showed us some really interesting highlights of the lake. I highly recommend this company for an excursion!
