Excellent trip! I was a little hesitatnt on the price, but was well worth the money!
I ended up paying a little more money to come back on the later bus and spent to day in provence. Was a great day, the tour guide was helpful, friendly and fully of knowledge. Would reccomend to friends.

Three of us went together on this trip and thoroughly enjoyed the scenery, the town of Chamonix and the cable car experience. The views from the top were amazing! It was bitterly cold at the top so we were glad we had taken extra clothing with us! We had plenty time to eat in Chamonix and explore the area. The only downside was the fact that you did not have a dedicated tour guide and you travelled there on a small bus and returned on a much larger one which departed from a different area. We had to ask a number of people on the streets for directions to the bus as the directions the tour guide had provided were inadequate. This was a trip well worth doing though.

The secenery was beautiful. I was dissappointed with the driver who took us to Chamonix. He did not tell us anything about the area on route to Chamonix. We could not ascend Mount Blanc as all cablecars were closed due to bad weather. It was still beautiful in Chamonix.

Quite good tour and very scenic. I wish they could have given little bit more time to spend in Chamonix town.

The trip was great! Loved the whole experience. However the guide (according to a handful of people and me) was quite unpleasant and bitter....The rip was supposed to be 7h but was 5h and 30min...I wish I had time to have lunch in Chamonix. It is a 5 star experience but the guide took away from experience....

Mistake in the time of departure you send to me. You said 11 am and the tour began at 8.30. Fortunately the travel agency in Geneva assigned a driver to take us to Chamonix and the service was excellent

Confusing. One man took us to Chamonix, without explanation turned us over to another man, who was surprised and knew nothing of us coming. That man told us how to find the bus going back at least a 10 minute walk back. Then he showed us where to get on the Tram up Mont Blanc and said, "you won't be seeing me again". At the appointed time had to search for the bus which was a huge bus while we had gone in a small van. The ride back was uneventful. Good trip but confusing travel arrangements and really no guide.

Fantastic weather meant great views. Timely departure and arrival at start and end. Way too much time given in Chamonix though. I was the only person on the tour and was left to wander around for nearly 5 hours.

I paid too much for too little! In the way to Chamonix the passengers heard some information about the area but it sounded like a recorded tape. Then we realized that we only paid for the travel to Chamonix and back to Geneva and for the Cable train to Aiguille du Midi, and that's all! As I spent about 177 USD on this trip, at least you should provide a guide who will accompany the travellers all (half) day long, from checking-in in Geneva to the way back to the Geneva bus station. It's unfair that we had to spend about 3-4 hours on our own (and no information was provided during the way back to Geneva). I find it completely unfair. I wouldn't recommend my friend to join any Viator tours in the future. I am deeply disappointed.

I would not recommend taking the 11am half day tour. It wasn't really a tour as such. Just a bus transfer from Geneva to Chamonix, and someone buying us the tickets for the cable car. We only saw tour guides at the very beginning and the very end of the tour. Otherwise, we were basically left on our own to do as we pleased. We may as well have just taken the bus to Chamonix ourselves (the bus ride back to Geneva was the public bus anyway).
