Best tour ever! Really worth seeing Mont Blanc. Our guide Neil was really accommodating and funny. He even gave us tips on where to go in Geneva after the tour. Highly recommend you do this tour. Although, I would not recommend you go see the ice cave at Mer de Glacé. Its 420 steps down, thats 840 steps two way. Even if you think youre really fit, its not worth seeing just a cave with ice walls. Take Neils advice.

Amazing. We were lucky we were told by the guide that the cable car was open, no strong winds to be closed. We did not originally include a glacier train ride but my suggestion is to buy from you tour guide. It is much cheaper than through viator site. Views are beautiful.

This is simply a must if you are in Geneva !!! Awesome and spectacular !!! Words cannot describe the beauty of the glaciers and snow capped mountains......
Do remember to carry your Passport as you cross the French border. Key Tours the local operator, turned down many people who had not brought their passports. The Viator website needs to mention that this is compulsory when booking.

Great walk. My sister and I almost missed the train back to Chamonix. We ran up the 450 steps in 15 minutes. It was snowing when we took a train back to Chamonix.

The tour started on time from the bus terminal near Mont Blanc stop in central Geneva. The guide gave us detailed info about how the day was organised along with a map of Chamonix where the meeting places and times were marked. The guide doesnt accompany you on the cable car or the train and stays below in Chamonix. One can explore on their own and meet the group at the times mentioned OR just join back at the end of the day so one is quite flexible. We started back at 5pm and at 0630pm, we were back in Geneva.

Our guide was very helpful and gave us information about Chamonix, Mt Blanc, things to do in Geneva etc etc.

Some tips:
i Dont forget your passport/ID as you will be crossing borders
ii Taking the lunch option isnt mandatory as there are many options to eat in Chamonix. This could save you some money specially if you are a family or group.
iii Check weather forecast. If its too cloudy/rainy/snowy, you wont see a thing up there. Clear weather is very important to enjoy the day to the most
iv Keep an eye on the watch. If you booked the trip with cable car train, you need to hurry a little as there are waiting times for the cable car and train in summers it could be much worse than off-season.
v Ice caves on the glacier were ok not very big. If you have the time and energy, you can climb down and up the 450 steps.

This is a day trip that I'll remember for the rest of my life. Chamonix is a place everyone needs to see! We had a great weather day, so it was clear skies at the top of the mountain. They give you plenty of time to walk around and do your thing. Absolutely no complaints. Would highly recommend!

This is an excellent trip, and I would recommend anyone to go on it. Unfortunately we were not able to go up in he cable car that we had planned to, do due to the weather, but we went up in another one that did not go so far up, which was a little disappointing. Warning on this one as there is a very long uphill climb before you can get on the cable car, and many people were out of breath before they got there. However the view from the top was lovely, and there is a small café where you can get a refreshing drink or something the eat. The train journey in the afternoon was excellent, and the snow on the mountains was beautiful-sit on the left hand side going up for the best views. All in all a very good trip, and our guide Neil was excellent as well.
