Excellent tour, loved our guide Neil who was funny and informative. Mont Blanc, what can you say but beautiful and the views from the top fantastic. Would do this one over and over again!
Chamonix and Mont Blanc are amazing. I highly recommend this tour. In fact- I would do it again. Neil is a fantastic tour guide.
Left the “Gare Routiere” in a double-decker bus (combining tours with public transportation) a little after 8:30 AM. Got to Chamonix after 10, directly to the cable car for Aiguille du Midi, took the cable car up – around 90 minutes to explore (counting two cable cars each way). Down to the city, then walk for lunch at 12:45 (good restaurant, you pre-order on the bus: 4 options for appetizer/entrée, 3 for dessert).
At 1:45 PM walk to the railway to Montenvers, you have then there almost one hour – enough time to go (by yourself) to the Mer du Glace (the cable day-pass covers this too, plus 380 stairs each way).
Bus left back from the Chamonix rail station at 16:45; don’t be late: presumably due to the public transportation part it won’t wait for you. No extra charge for anything; on the bus there were people with very different selections – probably buying directly from the local operator (KeyTours.ch): they were offered upgrades at (presumably) lower prices. It might be worth considering this if able to better plan for it. Viator had this trip only with lunch, Expedia with/out lunch – picked Viator with a 7% coupon and it became a little less than Expedia no-lunch.
Great guide: Neil.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour.
The only minor downfall was I became unwell with altitude sickness.
The Chamonix and Mont Blanc tour was even more than expected. Just beautiful. We recomend this excursion. I wish we could have had the time to stay in Chamonix a couple of days.
This trip was the highlight of our whole trip to Switzerland! The tour made it easier to navigate around. Only wish we had more time to stay. Now that we know more about the area, next time we'll go on our own.
A tour that I will remember for the rest of my life. Tour guide was great. Scenery was beautiful! I was scared to death as I am scared of heights... but it was worth every minute to be able to say I was up that high in the Alps.
An excellent tour. Our guide was Simon, and he was very friendly, helpful, and professional. I would recommend this trip very highly.
This is one beautiful place that is not be missed if you are ever in the area...and don't forget to take the train to the Glacier AND make the effort to walk the 400 steps down to the Ice Cave....
Fantastic, especially the scenery, all was like postcards. Tour is well organized, all participants are well informed and enjoyed the tour very much. Thank you to Viator team.
We set off right on time. Our guide Neil was very informative he explained everything very clearly and the itinery went like cloclwork. The scenery ws magnificent and it will be a day we will always remember. The coach driver was first class. I usually suffer with travel sickness but did not have any problems. Well done to all concerned.
Probably could have done the food on my own, but aside from that it was worth every penny. The view from the mountain top was AMAZING, one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. The town was so cute, the glacier was also amazing to see and the train ride made for a fun expereince.
Our first trip to the Alps was magnifique! Our tour guide Neil was very informative with an interesting sense of humour and full off interesting information about anything and everything. Cable car was absolutely amazing and the view of Mont Blanc was worth the harrowing trip for my husband! Lunch at Chamonix was delicious and the view from the restaurant was picturesque. The ride on the mountain train to the glacier was breathtaking. Overall would recommend this tour for anyone who would like fantastic memories of their time in the French Alps. We are from Western Australia and the experience was priceless!
Excellent Tour. Would highly recommend it as it proved to be a fantastic day out for everyone.
Good narrative and a great overall tour. Went up to Mt. Blanc - phenomenal. Took the train up to the glacier and the lunch was very good. Great value for a full day.
While we could have pieced together this trip on our own, we never would have done it so effortlessly and stress-free. It also helped that the day we went was absolutely beautiful in Chamonix and the views were amazingly clear and enjoyable.
beautifull countryside and breathtaking gondola rides to mont blanc. the views are unforgettable. neely the guide was extremely knowledgable and made the tour interesting and a lot of fun.
Great day tour a beautiful part of Switzerland just make sure you are dressed for -10 degress.
We picked this tour as we wanted to see some snow while in Europe (we're from Australia!) and since we were visiting in the summer this seemed the best option. It was terrific - and yes, there was snow. The meeting place in Geneva was very easy to find and our guide, Neil, was fantastic and provided some excellent commentary while on the bus. Chamonix is simply gorgeous and provides the perfect 'alpine' picture postcard. The cable car up to Mont Blanc is a great experience. Lunch was very nice. A great day out.
Great day, great guide, would recommend to anyone with limited time. With the tour, we avoided many of the lines, and were able to visit everything in a day.
We were unlucky for that day, it was raining all day and the cable car was cancelled ! The rest of the trip was ok and well organized. Our tour guide was such a character, everyone loved him, so i think this trip deserves to get the 5 stars because weather has nothing to do with Viator!
