What a great trip!! Departure point was easy to find and we left on time. Our guide Maria was very informative and quite friendly. En route, we were given good direction on where to go and when to meet for our return. If you are looking for a heavily guided tour, this isn’t for you. Besides the ride there and ride back, we were fully on our own. However, Maria let us know she’d be at certain spots at certain times if needed. That was a nice insurance policy if we got turned around or just plain lost. But we managed to do just fine on our own. I can’t even begin to describe the beauty of Mont Blanc!! You will not be disappointed with it. Make sure to purchase the cable car (can’t go up the mountain without it!). We did not purchase the lunch (seemed a bit steep for such a small meal) and we did purchase the train. But a couple of tips: In the summer, the glacier is a path of dirt and rocks. No snow of course so if you’re expecting a traditional glacier, you won’t get it. The ice cave you are also taking the train for is 450 steps down and then 450 steps back up. We saw quite fit people coming up looking like they were about to die. So we skipped the cave. The train is great for breathtaking views but the glacier-less glacier and staircase of death was a bit of a snooze fest. Departure back to Geneva was on time. All in all, we had about 6-7 hours on our own. Plenty of time to do everything. I would definitely recommend this tour (no way you’d figure transport and locations of those events on your own if you’re a tourist) and would pay again to have all of the plans arranged for me!

We purchased just the transportation to Chamonix on line and purchased the excursion to Mont Blac and the glaciers on the bus because we had read you may not want to to go up the mountain if the weather was not clear. Turns out we had a gorgeous day. It was much cheaper. Both were well worth the money and we saved by doing it this way.

Good pace, well planned out. It caters very well for travelers who want different options within the same tour. We selected the one with lunch provided. Managed to cover all our selected sights at a good pace.

Amazing tour - the view from Mont Blanc is totally breaktaking. The cable car is very steep though and not for the faint hearted.

Chamonix is a lovely place with plenty nice restaurants to eat in. Great, well organised tour.

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.
