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!

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.

Excellent experience. The guide was very helpful giving all the information necessary for a safe and successful trip. He also made our trip be fun, talking about the environmental and also giving us technical information, as needed. The trip is amazing. The scenario is beautiful and varied. The bus was on time.

If you have never been to the alps before, this is a great way to get familiar. This tour is more about the beautiful scenery than history so I didn't expect a lot of dialogue from our guide. What we got was a reliable escort to each of the attractions with our tickets provided. I would highly recommend the lunch, it was wonderful. We went up the cable cars to Aguille du Midde, had lunch, visited the glacier, and had time to wonder around Chamonix. Chamonix is very pretty but I am glad we did the glacier. I had enough time to get a taste of Chamonix afterwards.

I took that full day with the Aiguille du Midi cable car. It was money well spent. Loved the excursion and Neil was a great your guide.

We had a wonderful tour, the weather was extra warm that day so the sky was a beautiful colour and the paragliders were wonderful to see flying over the snow tipped mountains. Our tour guide was excellent and very willing to give us any information we needed. We found the experience fantastic in every aspect.

It was an amazing experience especially conversation from the tour guide Neil.
Mont Blanc - Comments are not even sufficient to praise the beauty of it.

We had the full works, the return coach trip to Chamonix, the return gondola trip up Aiguille du Midi, the lunch and the return train ride to Montenvers to view the bottom of the Mer de Glace glacier. Overall our experience of the whole package was positive but as a result of our experience we would have taken up different options within the package if we were to go again.

By far our favourite part of the package was the trip up Aiguille du Midi. We found that the views of Mont Blanc were so stunning that we would have stayed up there for a couple of hours at least. In fact, because it was suggested that we catch the 11:45 gondola down we only had 45 minutes to admire the views and explore all of the different facilities offered at the top. The main reason for this limitation was that we had booked lunch at the Gustavia hotel. The three course lunch, with soft drink, served at the Gustavia was in fact very good but had we known we would have foregone it and stayed for a lot longer at the top of Aiguille du Midi.

In fact we found while driving to Chamonix that there was a coach leaving at 14:00. So for us the ideal trip would have been to arrive at Chamonix at 10:00, catch the gondola up to Aiguille du Midi at 10:30 and staying at the top for just over two hours, returning on the 2pm coach back to Geneva.
This means we would also have missed Montenvers trip. However apart from some very stunning mountain views at Montenvers there was very little to see there. Unfortunately the Mer de Glace glacier visible there was just stones and rocks at this time of year. So we could well have missed this trip.

Finally the trip was organised by Keytours and they provided an excellent guide named Neil. He was somewhat laconic at the start but proved to be very informative and organised the trip really well.

Fantastic trip to Mont Blanc and Mere de Glace. We were lucky enough to have great weather (only the ice cave was inaccesible to us!). It really is a self-guided tour, but this works out great as you are free to do what you want when you want (as long as you and #39;re back on time!)

I was sceptical to book this tour because previous reviews on Trip Advisor regarding the local tour operator and the tour leader had me worried but I can honestly say that this tour was really good.
You meet at the bus station in Geneva, easy to locate and you can clearly find the tour office if you cant locate the bus. You check in, hop on board, across the border to France and on the way there you get your itinerary, tickets and any other useful information.
I am well-travelled and don't need somebody to babysit me so this tour was what we were after. I travelled with my boyfriend, we stuck to the itinerary and felt that we had plenty of time for all activities. Unfortunately we just had to rush for the Glacier Cave as they changed the timing of the mountain train and therefore we only had 1hr to trek down the 450 steps to the glacier and then back up, it was snowing but managed it in no time at all you also need to take a small cable car down part-way but that was quick this was not the tour companys fault btw. Some people missed the 4pm train due to it being overcrowded but the tour leader/driver waited the 30mins for them to arrive on the next train as it was not their fault for not be allowed to board the 4pm train.
We got the full day package with lunch and it was very nice, all you can eat soup, salad and then you got a main i.e chicken, fish or veg and then dessert and a soft drink/juice all included. If you don't want to do the lunch there are plenty of other places to eat.
Overall if you want an organised tour where you can go off on your own but not have the hassle or buying tickets, getting to Mont Blanc, looking for a tourist map etc then this tour is for you. Yes Neil is pretty blunt at times but in all fairness we did have a load of people who weren't listening to him and it can get very old but he is super helpful, speaks like 5 languages and was always seen in Chamonix in case you get lost - but Chamonix is small.
