What people are saying about Annecy

Excellent and informative walking tour of Annecy. Aude, our guide, packed a tremendous amount of history, geography, and architecture into a two-hour tour. My wife, who’s not as big a fan of walking tours as I am, thoroughly enjoyed it. Aude also offered numerous helpful suggestions for things to do on the remainder of our stay. We says parts of the old city we likely would not have encountered if we’d simply wandered the city ourselves. Highly recommended.

World City Trail helped us explore the city of Annecy in around 1,5 hours, with a dog, without needing to go in any shops or attractions. The app gives you information about the places your visiting, as well as some small puzzles that you get to solve.

A very fun and original treasure hunt, accessible even in teams of 2 and easy to use with your laptop. We loved it. And of course we recommend.

Explore places in an all new way!!! This App is easy to use.

I would do the same tour again! Highly enjoyed it...
