Our guide was wonderful and knowledgeable. Despite the weather not fully cooperating (one lift closed), the town was charming and the trip to the glacier was worth the trip.

Our private tour to Chamonix was a huge disappointment. Our driver/guide arrived at the pick-up point late. When we arrived at the cable car to Aiguille du MIDI, we discovered that no reservation had been made for our group. This meant we had to wait 1 hour for the next cable car. Later, we arrived at the Montenvers railway to Mer de Glacé only to discover that we had missed the train. Clearly our guide did not know the scheduled departure times, which meant an additional 35 minute wait. In all, we spent 1 and 3/4 hours waiting during our tour and the tickets that assured us of no waiting in line were worthless, as we stood in line continuously throughout the day.

Thomas was an amazing tour guide as the top peak was closed due to adverse weather, and he suggested another peak to try which was equally beatiful. Furthermore, the day was thoughfully planned by keytours and would love to go again with them
