Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Geneva, gateway to the Alps, and make the scenic transfer to Annecy.

Day Two

Our included guided tour introduces the lake and the town that graces its northernmost tip. A picture-postcard-perfect scene, Lake Annecy boasts sparkling waters, across which several steamers and pleasure craft ply their colourful courses, overlooked by the high peaks of the French Alps. Prosperous Annecy is a beguiling place, with the Old Town's quaint, flower-decked houses huddled beneath the ancient chateau, Shops and restaurants abound, and there are several museums and a cathedral to explore.

Day Three

Today's included excursion, perhaps the highlight of the holiday, journeys to famous Alpine resort Chamonix, in the shadow of towering Mont Blanc. We include a Mont Blanc Multipass, giving you unlimited access on all participating and operating cable cars and trains. Upon arrival in Chamonix, perhaps make a journey on the historic Montenvers rack railway to the edge of the vast Mer de Glace (Sea of Ice) above the town, or take the even more vertiginous ride on the Aiguille du Midi cable car to an eye-popping altitude of 3,842 metres - the closest you can get to the summit of Mont Blanc without climbing it!

Day Four

Rest and relax in the hotel and its surroundings, or more likely join today's wonderful optional excursion to the shores of Lake Geneva, calling at the improbably pretty village of Yvoire, famed as a 'village fleurie', and taking in Evian-les-Bains, a famous 'watering hole' in more ways than one, since the resort is not only celebrated for its health-giving treatments, but of course known the world over for its bottled spring water.

Day Five

The final optional excursion is to the celebrated spa town of Aix-les-Bains, including a walking tour around its elegant centre. Ornate formal gardens surround the imposing Belle Epoque buildings, while the Old Town, a rabbit warren of narrow streets, is a delight, and the Musee Faure houses some important Impressionist paintings. A mile or so from the town centre lies beautiful Lac du Bourget, another 'lakes and mountains' idyll.

Day Six

A last day is free simply to enjoy the beauty of your surroundings, perhaps taking to the water on a steamer, or if you are feeling more energetic, heading out on the lakeshore promenade on foot or by hired bicycle. The shops and restaurants of Annecy might tempt you to return, or perhaps you'll venture further afield.

Day Seven

Bid "Au revoir" to your hosts, and transfer to Geneva Airport for the return flight to the UK, after a wonderful Alpine holiday.

JOHN

Luton Couple
Overall good. Problem with transfer from Geneva to hotel. Flight was over 2 hours late and nobody was at the airport to meet us. We phoned UK and were told somebody would be there at 2.30pm which happened. A driver and coach arrived but we then had to wait until after 5.00pm before the coach left for the hotel. Having arrived at Geneva just after midday we felt that this was not very satisfactory, bearing in mind that we had already informed the office from Luton airport that we were going to be delayed and told that the people in France would know and we would be met.
The optional Aix les Bains would have been better arranged the other way round with less time at the lake first and then more time in the town.

Very interesting part of the country. I felt the optional trip to Aix was largely unnecessary. There was really nothing to see. But overall it was very interesting.

MARIAN

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.

STEPHEN

Hazel Grove, Stockport Couple
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.
