This is one of the best activities I have joined and I’m so glad I decided to come event though I was alone. It was well-organized and I learned a lot about Switzerland from the tour guide. I’ve been telling my friends about this for when they come to Switzerland.

We had perfect weather for our day in Chamonix, the guide was great and gave us clear instructions for what to do, where to meet, and how to make the most of the day! Recommend this trip for the great views of Mont Blanc.

Really enjoyed this and so did our 9 and 11 year old. Got some history, lots of of chocolates. We had fun, learned a lot and now have new favorite chocolates.

We really liked the tour, although it was very cloudy, we enjoyed it to the fullest, we highly recommend it. No delays.

Es war eine wunderschöne Reise. Ich war beeindruckt von alles, was wir besucht haben.
