The activity is super worth the money. The experience being on top of that mountain is priceless. I think this tour is not enough for a day. It needs an accommodation near the area to enjoy it. Both areas are magnificent and amazing! The area for improvement is for our tour guide from the company called Swiss Guide and his name is Chris. He is not tourist friendly, he has his own world. The big bus used by this company also does not have any working USB charger on board which makes it a little challenge. Other than this all were fine and perfect!

Fabulous trip. Chris, the guide on the bus, was personable and very clear with instructions about the day - directions about where to meet, how best to undertake the activities etc. There was plenty of time to do everything (cable car, train, ice caves) - and have lunch in Chamonix. We were very pleased we did the trip.

Chamonix is a must-see destination! The tour guide was very helpful and he explained everything when we arrived. The meeting point was easy to get to, the location and direct address are provided in the ticket/booking details. A highly recommended day-trip if you’re planning to spend your weekend in Switzerland.
