“Sit on the left hand side”

This is an hour long circuit of the lake. Its a bit boring if you happen to sit on the right hand side - as everything to see is on the left hand side. When the boat is returning - again the left hand side get all the views/photo ops. It was a bit annoying to queue for 30 mins - only to see a tour operator with a large group jumped the queue and got the best seats. I wouldn't really bother with it in hindsight.

We spent several days in Annecy. We first toured the lake by boat on a 2 hour tour which was great and gave us the opportunity to get our bearings. The following day we hired bikes and rode around the lake. It was a mostly gentle ride but did have one more strenuous section. Much of the ride is on a dedicated bike path passing beautiful scenery of the mountains, the lake and scenic villages however some sections you are riding on a narrow road with a large number of cars! Annecy old town is beautiful and very busy. We stayed at Marina Bay, nice to be out of the old town but still very close by. We very much enjoyed our stay and recommend it as a place to visit.

Be warned, they broke into our hire car and stole all our luggage from the boot, the police refused to help or let us file a report.
We were told it wasn't an emergency and that the office was closed until 8am the following day at which point we would have missed our flight back home!
