This tour is amazing! Chamonix is a lovely town and the snow moutains are fantastic! The views from Aiguille du midi and the amazing ice cave are definitely worth the visit! Highly recommend!

Absolutely wonderful trip. As it turned out, the only people on our bus was my husband, daughter, myself and our driver, Darren. This tour is so new to Viator and even though it was only the 3 of us, they still went forward with it. Thank you so much!! We loved the Aiguille du Midi cable car ride and the time we had to walk around the town of Chamonix. Having lunch with Mont Blanc as the backdrop was simply amazing!!

Simply Superb! This was the highlight of my European trip and it was everything I had hoped for and more.
The tour was really well organised, commentary informative and entertaining, and the views from the bus were amazing. The glass roof was closed as it was chilly but you still felt so much more part of the mountains than on a regular tour bus.

The Aiguille du Midi was awesome. You are so high up and the views are spectacular.

I would recommend this tour to everyone.

Thouroughly enjoyed our trips up the mountain and down into the ice caves. The only reason we rated it a 4 instead of 5 was because of the weather. Certainly not anything the tour operators have control over. Fortunately we rose above the clouds into sunshine at the top of the gondola which made the trip extremely worthwhile.

3 star rating: Worth doing

A bit disappointed did not get to the peak glass void as the cable car to peak was halted due to weather condition. The ice cave was closed for maintenance too. Moreover, the bus multi languages audio system was not working and glass roof was never opened. Overall a so-so experience only.

We did the Chamonix French Alps Day Tour from Geneva by Open top Bus 18th May 2015.
It was so disappointing!

From the very beginning, the bus was late for 10 mins. We were all waiting outside the hotel in the cold for more than half an hour. We were told to arrive at least 15mins earlier before the schedule pick up time at 8.15am and most of us were there earlier.

Then, we have to wait for some of the pax to go back to their hotel to take their passports and there was another delay of at least 20mins.

With all the delays, we were late by schedule for about 45mins.

And why bother to even send a faulty bus with no audio available. We can't even hear what the guide/driver was saying when he had to drive and give explantations at the same time on a stuffy bus with no ventilation.

The void on the french alps was closed. The ice cave on the Mer de Glace was closed as well. And your guide can tell us, usually around this time of the year, it's closed for maintenance.
Meaning to say, this is kinda expected and yet we were not inform before hand if we would like to opt out the Mer de Glace.
Come on, i really feel shortchanged.

This trip was the worst we ever had. Not only with irresponsible group of pax that keep making us wait for them the WHOLE Trip, faulty bus, one guide / driver and he look like he can't cope that well and with half of the attractions closed.
I really feel shortchanged for this trip and it did ruin our day.
