This was the perfect small day tour for us! The tour was one of the most beautiful we've experienced and I would recommend it to anyone. Having a small group was also massive advantage as it was very personalised. Sandrine, our tour guide, was lovely and knew so much knowledge about France. You could ask any question and she'd answer it for you. I would recommend this tour for couples, groups or families. Children might get a little bored as its more history then an adventure tour but I'd still recommend it to families anyway.
This tour really showed how beautiful the Alps are. It was truly breathtaking.
Unfortunately, a few things went wrong the day of our tour which was disappointing but we still really enjoyed ourselves.
First of all our original double decker bus was broken down so we had to share a bus with a group of skiers. It was loud and hard to hear out tour guide. Secondly, the part of the tour that takes you to the glacier on the train was cancelled as the train had technical difficulties. This wasn't anyone's fault but it was disappointing to come all that way and not see it. The tour company refunded the train tickets at the end of the tour which was really good.
The town of Chamonix is beautiful. Plenty of food and shopping. We obviously had extra time to explore the town due to the cancellation of the train. I would recommend this tour to anyone but if you are afraid of heights or get bad altitude sickness, then this tour probably isn't for you. It's very high on the mountain and you do experience slight altitude sickness and shortness of breath while your up there. Nothing too bad, but it just best to be aware before you book the tour. You can choose not to take the gondola up if you want.
All in all, a great day!
