Alright, so here's the story:
My name is Eddie. I'm just a guy from Seville, Spain that started doing tours at the age of 19. It was supposed to be a temporary thing, but 9 years later turns out I liked it so much that I've guided in 4 different countries, 6 cities, for 5 different companies and in 3 different languages. The point is I like doing tours so much I can't imagine myself doing anything else.
I've always had the dream of creating my own tour from scratch. Taking all the good things I've seen from so many guides along the years and combining them into the ultimate tour.
Well I don't know if i succeeded, but I'm definitely giving it a try!
I really can't describe how excited I am to have you join my tour.

eddie was very accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. It was so helpful to get this tour on our first full day in Annecy.. it gave us the historical, geographical, architectural and current lay of the land that we needed to get familiar with our new surroundings. We liked it even more than expected!

We spend a really nice time with Eddie who is really friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Annecy and all the cities around! He made us want to stay more to hike in the mountain and swim in the lake! We promise to come back and stay longer next time :)

Eddie provides an excellent historical tour to become acquainted with the magic of Annecy. The city has so much historical significance there’s no way 90 minutes could do it justice, but Eddie gives a great overview of the most significant points. Eddie is personable and really fun. Highly recommended tour to include on your Annecy visit.
