Great tour! Beautiful views! If I could do it again, I wouldn't do the lunch and would've sat at the top of the mountain and had a beer/lunch up there. It was an amazing day that I'll forever remember!

What a brilliant day out we had. Neil the driver was good fun and also gave us great tips time wise so we wouldn't miss out on anything and still be back for the return journey-well worth the money for once in a lifetime mountain summit and glacier visit

Our tour to Chamonix was great inspite of the rainy weather that day. Our driver was very accommodating and knowledgeable. We opted for the package with a lunch at the Le Bistrot....very nice and well presented lunch. Me and my husband had a great time. All the food being served were superb. Thumbs up! It was such an unforgettable experience. God job!

Absolutely breathtaking. This tour was one of the top highlights of our 25 day European adventure. The bus driver was knowledgeable and provided a great impromptu narrative during our drive to Chamonix when the recording was not working. The tour was very well-organized and the sites themselves gondola to mountaintop and ice caves were fabulous. As an aside, we used Viator for several Europe tours and each one was of great quality. Viator will remain on our favorites for future travels.

Neil the driver was the perfect host. His knowledge of the area was fascinating and could not have done more to have made the day special was our Wedding Anniversary. Nothing was any trouble for him and he would go that extra mile to make the day memorable. Aiguille du Midi was, literally, breath taking and well worth the price. One of these 'must do's'. As for Chamonix simply delightful.

There are a few options to visit Chamonix but the benefit to this one is definitely the lunch, do NOT skip the lunch option. Not only is it about 1/2 price of what a meal out in Geneva will cost you, but it was the best meal of my entire trip through Switzerland. I was treated like royalty at a Michelin star restaurant and if I was eating some of the dishes in the privacy of my own home, I would have licked the plate.
This tour offers the open top bus which is, I believe, the only tour company that does from Geneva. The bus wasn't really the highlight of my trip and I recommend a hat or sunglasses because the sun does beat down on you in the morning through the glass.
The only real downside to this tour was there just wasn't a lot of time. I booked it up to the mountain by speaking to the guide while everyone was in the bathroom and was able to get a jump start on the line up to Mont Blanc, which helped moved the day along faster, but time really flew all day. Between waiting in lines and the transportation time for the round trip cable cars and trains don't expect to get much shopping in. In order to fully appreciated the village of Chamonix you have to cruise through the mountain and the ice cave. If you prefer a day of shopping in Chamonix, you can skip the ice cave. It's quite a hike to get down and back up to it. But I will say, my photos from the cave got the biggest reaction from my friends. It really was a unique experience.

Worth every penny. The views are spectacular and the pace of everything is very nicely planned -- you're free to wander or request the assistance of your guide from place to place. Additionally, the lunch is well worth it. It's an incredible nice restaurant and pleasantly breaks up the day.

Loved this tour. We went for the complete tour including lunch. So happy we did, the food was amazing. The Alps are breathtaking and so worth the money. Only complaint was the bus was open glass and the air conditioning was not working. Hot on the way home.

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.

The open-top bus never happened we were taken in a comfortable mini-van instead, but there was no canned commentary as promised. The cable car rides two in all and express elevator to the top of Mont Blanc, and the views up there, were breathtaking and worth every penny spent. Lunch at the Bistro restaurant I'd opted and paid for this was nice but... different. I'll probably opt for a burger and coffee outside instead if I ever do this again - there are lots of eateries to go to, the best one in the main terminal itself. Be wary of the over-priced souvenirs on the top - they're all available down below at cheaper rates and with more variety. We had lots of time to take in the overall ambiance of the place, and Neil the driver-cum-guide was friendly, forthcoming and very informative. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone who's visiting Geneva for a couple of days or more and wants some spectacular Swiss mountain views from relative comfort.

We really enjoyed this tour despite the inclement weather. The time allotted for the activities was adequate and we didn't feel rushed. I did have to take off a star from my review, as the audio commentary that was to be provided during the round trip was not operational. Here are some recommendations for others considering this trip: 1 You may not want to book this trip too far in advance. Instead, first see what weather is forecasted for the days you are considering. The right weather will make all the difference. 2 We did not include the lunch, which worked out better for us. After the trip up the mountain, we grabbed a quick lunch in town, then took the train ride to the glacier. This gave us over two hours to wander the town and pick up dinner at a far better price than if we had waited to eat once back in Geneva.
