Amazing views. Cable car was incredible engineering to go so high. The glass cave was a natural wonder. Just a note of caution that you should be able to go up and down lots of stairs and because of the altitude you will get winded. Only suggestion for the tour is to have the guide throughout the day not just at drop offs and pickups.

Only a weekend to explore for fun associated with business travel - this was the thing to do! Beautiful scenery, sufficient free time with just enough guided tour to learn and enjoy!

This was a phenomenal day trip to Chamonix. The start point was within a few hundred metres of our hotel which made for a gentle start. The coach ride was comfortable and uneventful (except for the van on fire by the side of the motorway). Thank you to Hakim for driving us. The trips within the day’s excursion (to the mountain peak and the Mer de Glace) were extremely well communicated and organised. The trip to the summit of Aiguille du Midi Mont Blanc was outstanding. The cable car rides and the views were fabulous. A word of warning though, the effect of oxygen deprivation at the peak can be unsettling. Our guide warned us so we were prepared for the effects. The train ride and walk through the Mer de Glace was an amazing experience. The history of the glacier is explained in simple terms and it is a fantastic trip. A comfortable ride back from Chamonix followed. A fabulous day out and worth the time and money.
