If you're in Annecy, it is worth going for a trip on the boat so you can get the full impact of this magnificent lake surrounded by the Alps. The water is crystal clear and blue and we were surrounded by sailing boats and other forms of fun water transport. It is good to sit up the front, outside, as you can enjoy the feeling of the wind and get unobstructed views. However, if it's very hot, you will need a large hat and something to cover your skin. Sitting inside you can hear the commentary, which is not clear when you're outside. A 1 hour trip was about €14.50 per person. They also have 2 hour trips. All tickets can be bought at the booth next to the boats mooring.

Weather was amazing. 30 degrees plus. We had a group of 20 people where we took the 2 hour tour. great way to see the lake and the surrounding scenery. The wind was up, so caused some white water, so some of the group got wet, to the amusement of the rest of the group. (whether the captain deliberately soaked us, who know). great tour, although I was the only one that spoke any french, it would have been nice for the group to hear the commentary in English as the staff knew there was a group of English on board. Excellent way of passing a couple of hours, although a bar on board would have been fantastic.

Fun lake ride specially when the weather is nice. They offer 1 or 2 hours ride. Ended up going with the first option considering rides are more frequent - every hour.

Overall good experience and definitely worth it if you’re in town.

We had a superb afternoon (2hr) trip around the lake. The boats are spacious and comfortable with an interesting commentary of the key landmarks. A great and relaxing way to see the area. Great value too.

One hour tour is enough to view the lake and surroundings. They have commentary in France and English which provides good overview of the area.
