Everything went smoothly and the views from the top of the cable car are amazing! Bit short of oxygen at the top of the elevator though. The glacier was spectacular too, after an awful lot of stairs. Well worth the trip.

This is a great tour. Neil was informative and shared lots of ideas and wisdom in visiting Geneva. Chamonix and Mont Blanc were spectacular. I'm sorry we only planned a half-day visit. Take the whole day tour and go clear to the top of the mountain.

You can't visit Geneva without going to Chamonix and Mont Blanc. Awesome excursion. Very well organized.

Neil was awesome and the tour was awesome. Reccommend doing the full day as the half day doesn't include much and doesn't allow you to really experience everything there is to see. Ice cave was incredible, definitely worth the 400 stairs.

The trip to Chamonix from Geneva was enough to enjoy the beautiful countryside. But arriving in Chamonix and spending some time viewing the Mont Blanc massif is something to behold. It was a beautiful day,..... perfect for walking around, shopping for souvenirs and enjoying lunch in one of the local restaurants in clear view of the snow capped mountains...it was great!! The people are friendly and very accommodating...if you have extra days to spare, Chamonix will be a great choice.
This was another day trip with Viator that worked out so well....thanks!!

This is an awesome tour. Our guide was Neal, very informative and gave useful info in a fun way. We bought the sky card from him once in the place for 84CHF and that gave us access to the Cable car and the Aiguille du Midi, the Mer de Glace train, and other attractions. The town itself is beautiful with lots of places to eat and things to do. This was a perfect opportunity to see the French Alps and some of its glaciers. Be aware that although the excursion is advertised to take around 6-6.5 hrs, it really departs at 8:30am and returns 10hrs later at the Gare Routiere in Geneva. If you have a free day there, do it... 100 recommended.

Great tour! Worth every cent. The cable car was the first on our agenda. When the guide saw that the cable car was not working, he quickly changed course and asked us to go on ice train. After we did the train and returned, the cable car was operational again. We went on it and completed the whole tour. Good job!
