The places we went were very nice and worth the trip, it is something one should never miss. The only backdrop about this tour was the tour guide Chris and the driver. The guide showed no interest at all to explain details about the places we are going on. Unfortunately he also lack skills in managing groups. There was conflict in his meeting points, many guests including us got different answers (5 different answers) about the meeting point back from Chamonix. On the way back to Geneva, the driver switched on to French radio talk show. We were forced to listen to a talk show we don’t understand a word all the way back to Geneva. I believe we booked an English speaking tour at least show some respect to 40+ passengers.

The most amazing day from start to finish - worth every penny. Our tour guide was brilliant, I’ve got a nut allergy and the staff couldn’t be more helpful and accommodating. The tour it self was a one in a life time opportunity and we enjoyed every second of it. Really has made our trip to Switzerland the best holiday in a long time! Even got engaged at the top of Mont Blanc!

Reading others reviews we were a little hesitant to book but took the chance & im glad we did. We opted to just do the train as we didn’t know if the weather was going to be good enough for the cable car. This meant we had a free morning in Chamonix where we walked, shopped and enjoyed a coffee & cake. The highlight was going up the train to Mer de Glace and it snowing. As someone who is slow on stairs I didn’t get down to the ice cave as I knew I would be chancing it to get down & back in the allotted time, we would have headed there earlier if it was a possibility and enjoyed more time there. You just have to make sure you select the right option for you at the time of booking and if you decide to do everything it could be a rush from place to place. Ild happily recommend the tour to friends our guide & driver were friendly

Great transport to Chamonix and we had chosen the train ride only - not the tour up toward Aiguille de midi. We went on a Sunday but there were plenty of shops open - we had a lot of spare time. Unfortunately no snow but that was no issue. We took the train to Montenvers and the glacier which was a lovely trip and even if you have vertigo it’s ok - maybe closing eyes a couple of times ☺️ Guide was pleasant but didn’t really add much to the experience and very little interaction with the people on the coach as in providing information about Geneva and Chamonix whilst on train - very different to excellent guide we had to Annecy. Overall a good trip but if you don’t chose both activities it’s a long day.

Our guide Chris was great. He's very helpful and informative. We opted for the full package tour. We had a grand time with the tour even it was drizzling. We loved the French Alps.
