French Alps Holiday Itinerary

Day One: Fly from the UK to Switzerland

Fly to Geneva and transfer into France, heading to your hotel, where you'll be met by your Tour Manager.

Day Two: Included tour of Annecy

This morning's included tour will reveal the history and landmarks of Annecy, its lakeside setting enhanced by the majestic Alpine peaks towering on its horizon. The River Thiou winds through its heart, and flowers cascade down from the terraces of quayside restaurants.

Afterwards you're free to shop and explore. Visit the Observatoire des Lacs in the Chateau, the Museum of Alpine Miniatures and the Conservatoire d'Art et d'Histoire, or board one of the steamers that ply Lake Annecy for a cruise on this most picturesque of Europe's lakes.

Day Three: Included Chamonix and Mont Blanc tour

The highlight of our holiday for many, today's included excursion takes us to Chamonix. Here you'll be free to relax, explore, or perhaps use your included Mont Blanc Multipass (which gives you unlimited access on all participating and operating cable cars and trains) to board the historic Montenvers rack railway, which makes its way through the pine forests to the edge of the vast Mer de Glace (Sea of Ice) that sweeps down the valley above the town, or even ride the Aiguille du Midi cable-car, which rises to a jaw-dropping altitude of 3,842 metres at the top station for Mont Blanc (the closest you can get to the summit without climbing), before we return to our hotel.

Day Four: Optional day trip to Lake Geneva

The first of our optional excursions takes us to Lake Geneva. We'll stop in lovely Yvoire, home of the marvellous Jardin des Cinq Sens (Garden for the Five Senses), before heading to Evian-les-Bains. Now known around the world for its bottled spring water, the springs at Evian were first popularised in the early 19th Century, and rose to become one of the most exclusive summer resorts in the region - attracting Proust, the Lumiere Brothers and many more to its villas and elegant hotels.

Day Five: Optional Aix-les-Bains tour

Our second optional excursion is to the spa town of Aix-les-Bains. After a guided walk around Aix's elegant centre, you'll have time to visit the spa pump rooms, and take the waters, or admire the stunning views from the shores of nearby Lac du Bourget.

Day Six: Day at leisure

Spend your final full day in France relaxing or exploring as you see fit. Our Tour Manager will be happy to suggest things to see and places to go.

Day Seven: Fly back to the UK

Transfer back to the airport to check-in for your flight home.

Glenrothes, Fife Couple
Annecy is beautiful. Organised tours were very enjoyable. Hotel was fine but has rather strange housekeeping arrangements e.g. No cleaning done till day 5, recycling rubbish bins in rooms etc.

Lack of information re meeting of tour manager, departures of tours, supposed to have been included in paperwork, caused confusion for us. Also meeting arrangements at airport not ideal.

All of the above we managed to deal with, however our main disappointment was tour manager. I have already notified details to Newmarket.

Beautiful, different type of holiday. The glorious weather did enhance enjoyment as the spectacular scenery was shown off to full advantage. Bed and breakfast arrangement is ideal as it gives freedom over eating - as did the aparthotel facilities.

Our second Newmarket trip was even better than the first. Everything was spot on and well organised. The trips were all great and the tour manager very knowledgeable and helpful and some evenings joined us a local restaurant and he was great company. The Ibis hotel was very clean and comfortable and the staff all very pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was exceptional and the 24 hour complimentary tea and coffee an added bonus. A minor comment about the hotel is that a wall mounted handle over the bath to help access to the shower, maybe due to our age, would have been helpful. The coach trips were all excellent and the drivers so careful. We are already looking at our trip for next year.

LYNDA

Bury St Edmunds Friends
Overall a good holiday although it could be improved.

There was no Lounge or Bar at Aparthotel Adagio Annecy Centre so interaction between guests other than on excursions or breakfast.

Bedroom overall was good but lacked comfortable chairs - only hard dining chairs. Servicing by hotel didn't include cleaning of the room only bathroom and making bed.

Tour Guide kept guests at a distance and stressed his mobile number was for emergencies only. introductory talk was shambolic. You don't call a meeting at a certain time then start when early when only a few guests in attendance - as a result he kept repeating what he had already said when new guests appeared who were not late but on time.

Arrangements for departure morning could have been expanded - we had to ask about luggage arrangements and breakfast. Tour Guide seemed more interested in Euro Star passengers than those flying from Geneva Airport. If you hadn't traveled before this could be worrying.
