Our guide Tom was amazing. It was so beautiful in Montreaux where the tour took off from and the ride up the mountain was stunning. I highly recommend this tour to anyone! It was a lot of fun on top of the mountain as well with some unbelievable views. However, we couldn’t ride the alpine coaster (may 9th) because they were still clearing the tracks, I think it usually opens it late may. I just wish they made it more clear the bus takes off in Geneva and then meets in Montreaux. There are several large indications within this posting that made us believe the only departure point was in Montreaux so we trained from geneva to montreax which costed us $88 Canadian. Other than that it was absolutely amazing and I highly recommend.

Beautiful day out and worth the money for the time spent in this area. Scenery was stunning. Bus trip about 45min from Lake Geneva, two sets of cable cars to get you up to top of Mont Blanc, we then took the small train up the hill to then make the trip down into the ice caves, which again was worth the 500-odd steps down, as it is beautiful, and you can see the history, and the development of the glacier as it moves. I would watch if you are not fit, as the return walk is a bit tiring. Back down on the train and wandered around the shops and had some lunch, to then take the return trip back to Geneva.

Great tour. Unfortunately the was no visibility from the top of Auguille du Midi except a few brief moment with a slight break on the cloud cover (obviously the tour company has no control over the weather). The afternoon trip to Mer de Glacé was clearer. Nevertheless, it was well worth going. We had a great day. Our guide (Chris) was great.

Very good ride. Very comfortable van, excellent guide. Much appreciated!

Amazing experience and a great tour guide. Couldn't recommend it more.
