Please note: We have decided to use Lyon as the gatewat for La Clusaz for two important reasons - Firstly, the changeover in Lille is much easier and quicker than in Paris (and is much preferred according to client feedback) so the extra transfer time is partly offset by a shorter connection time in Lille. Secondly, the departure time necessary to connect with the Annecy train is very early (07:00) due to changes to the French train schedule or arrival at the hotel would be very late, inconvenient options in both cases. The transfer time by coach from Lyon is approximately 2 hours which means arrival at the hotel in good time for dinner.
Please note the maximum group size on this tour is 49 passengers.
Built in the form of chalets and located in the heart of the alpine village of La Clusaz, the 3-star Hotel Alpen Roc offers comfortable bedrooms with private bath/shower, TV and telephone. Facilities at the hotel include a restaurant where you will have dinner each evening, a beautiful lounge with a panoramic view of the village, heated swimming pool, steam bath, sauna and fitness room.

Terry was an excellent tour guide with a wealth of knowledge and took a personal interest in looking after us all. Perhaps needed a longer time in Geneva as being the last day we needed to leave earlier than normal. A very enjoyable holiday throughout with lovely scenery. Would definitely recommend it.
