What people are saying about Annecy

I'm not very comfortable on Latin scooters so I had some concerns. But it's much easier to handle than I feared. In fact, after a few minutes, the use becomes instinctive and you move exactly as you want. It's incredibly intuitive. The visit is very pleasant, our instructor is very educational and takes instructive breaks about Annecy and its lake. Despite the frequentation (pedestrians, bicycles), everything went well. We really enjoyed this activity and we found that one hour was too short. If we had known, we would have taken 1h30. I recommend, it's a very good time.

Super nice to get to know the Segway in this way. Nice tour guide. Do not expect a very extensive history about Annecy. We went for the experience of the Segway and that worked out well!!

A really fun couple of hours. A very friendly guide with good English who provided a potted history of Annecy and the area we rode through. Would definitely go again.

Despite the weather (snow and low sky), it was a great experience with a very friendly young guide.

Very pleasant walk. For a first in Segway it was great.
