A very interesting and great experience to see the alps from above 3820 meter above sea level
Our tour guide was fantastic - knowledgeable and entertaining! Mont Blanc is stunning and the village of Chamonix is delightful.
Depending on the time of year - dress in layers - the top of Mont Blanc is COLD! Midpoint is a delightful cafe for sandwiches/hot chocolate/coffee - with spectacular views.
DO NOT MISS this tour - take the entire day - do not limit yourself by only going for a half day!
My wife and I booked this excursion through Viator in early September. We note from the confirmation email that the tour is actually operated by Key Tours. Our tour guide Neil was a nice guy who gave lots of information about Chamonix and Mont Blanc during the 1.5 hour bus travel. Chamonix is a very quiet and nice small town. Climbing up to Aiguille du Midi via cable car is a wonderful experience that we enjoyed very much. The view on mountain top is marvelous and one would never forget. Weather was great and we spent the whole morning in Aiguille du Midi before going back to Chamonix for a quick bite. Since the Montenvers Mer de Glace was closed during our visit, Neil offered us a nice replacement in the afternoon - to climb up to the mountain opposite to Mont Blanc by cable car. That enabled us to have a better view of the magnificent Mont Blanc. Before we headed back to Geneva, we had a nice walk in Chamonix. The tour was about 10 hours in total.
Totally amazing. Views soooo beautiful and the town really lovely with its shops and lovely flowers. Enjoyed everything about this tour to the max, the Cable car ride, the train ride, the lunch and the beer was really good. Our guide Neil was exceptional and very informative. What I really liked about this tour was that Neil informed you what to do, where to go and I did not have to follow him around
This trip is really good especially as it is quite self-directed. Our tour guide Neil was great. Beautiful sights and it was fantastic. I booked everything except the meal, which I was able to buy while I was there. There are plenty of other food options available, however the restaurant which they recommend is amazing Gustavia - attached to a hotel
What a wonderful day.....Perfect in every way. Our tour guide Caroline was very helpful.Chamonix was incredible, Mont. Blanc and the Glacier were amazing. Certainly a tour of a lifetime. Highly Recommend A
Great trip! Would highly recommend to purchase the train ride to see the glacier too. We opted not to purchase the lunch which i'm glad since it would limit our time at the top of Mont Blanc. The queue to get on the clear platform was over 30min long which we would have to skip had we had to be back at the bottom at noon. Plenty of cafes and restaurants to grab your own lunch. Fantastic day trip from Geneva!
A great day trip to one of the world's most beautiful mountain. Breathtaking ! Our guide Neil was wonderful, very informative and clear. Gave us a good recommendation for lunch venue with superb food and good pricing. Wouldn't be as enjoyable without Neil's great help. Thank you !

Beautiful scenery, lovely French Alpine village, inspiring Mont Blanc, great food and our terrific guide, Neil. What else could you ask?
If you do not take this tour you have truly missed out on a sightseeing opportunity. You will go to the top of Mont Blanc, travel to the beautiful glacier of Mont Blanc, have a chance to go into the ice cave of the glacier where you need to be in physical shape have lunch at any of the the terrific restaurants in Chamonix and if your truly fortunate, Neil will be your guide. Neil was outgoing, friendly, helpful and very knowledgable about the
I heartily recommend this tour to all!!!!!
This tour was a five star plus. Neil was our tour guide and he was perfect, knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed Mt Blanc and Chamonix so much that we did the tour over again a few days later. Don't miss this one! The ice cave was worth the 450 steps up and down. The wildflower walk and the train ride was wonderful. Chamonix was a beautiful town and worth a walk around if you have time.
Neal was a great tour guide. Raymond was a great driver. The town of Chamonix, the trip to L'Aiguille du Midi and La Mer de Glace were wonderful.
This was an amazing Tour and I was just so lucky. I did the Tour on a Monday approx 1/2 hour before we arrived at Chamonix it started to rain then snow so by the time we got to Chamonix everything was white and it was still snowing - just beautiful I have never seen snow falling before further snow was forecast and the cog railway was not working due to a tree fallen on the track. We were give the opportunity to go back to Geneva and rebook the Tour for another day which I chose to do. I did the Tour again on the Wednesday, it was a beautiful day, sun shining, blue skies so the contract was amazing. The Cable Car ride to the top of Mont Blanc was just amazing the scenery stunningly beautiful, watching skiers below, unfortunately I was a bit effected by the altitude so could not stay up there for too long but I would have to say it was the absolute highlight of my trip and I was away for 6 weeks visiting 6 countries. The cog railway gave another aspect of the Alps. Our guide on both days was Neil, he was so good and knowledgeable and his attention to detail was great.
It and #39;s a full-day tour which took us to a scenic drive from Geneva to Chamonix and cable car trip to the Auguille du Midi of the French Alps. The views were absolutely breathtaking! We also took the Petit Train to see the Mers de Glace, which is also amazing. Our guide Neil is fun and knowledgeable!
This is a trip of a lifetime. I highly recommend! You do need to be in moderately good shape, but the scenery is breathtaking!
Comfortable and on time travel. Useful insight and knowledge from the guide. Amazing village, views and experience.
Highly recommended the trip! it was a great day for us, with clear sky and sun and we are able to see a magnificent view! it can be a little cold up on top so bring some winter/spring jacket along. Did it without lunch so had more relaxing time to absorb the view. It is a pity I did not have much time to explore chamonix
Guide was excellent...very dry sense of humor I appreciated. Trip to top on gondola was interesting. Tram ride was as well.
