Beautiful scenery!

This is a wonderful tour, the only thing that would have made it better is if we could have gone to the top. Beware the 500 steps down to the glacier you have to climb back up but worth the trek down.

The ride wasn't too long, about 1 1/2 hours. The guide was a bit grouchy but we ignored him. The town was so amazing and quaint. The lift to the top f Mont Blanc was scary. If you are afraid of heights you may want to think twice and the air was very thin! It was cold, icy and raining at the top so we didn't get to see much. The lunch was at the most adorable restaurant and we are still talking about it! Really loved it. The train ride was fun but again, if you are afraid of heights once you get up the hill on the train you may want to stay in the restaurant/store if you don't want to ride another lift down to the ice caves. Over 400 steps to climb up and down in the ice caves. All in all this was a pretty scary but fun adventure.

This was the highlight of our trip to Europe. The tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Tickets are provided to you and then you're left to explore at your own leisure, which is very nice. We had the lunch included, which was at a nice restaurant in town and definitely exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend it!!!

Pauschalangebot viel zu teuer. Programm nicht eingehalten.
Edith_M
, Jun 2020
Wir haben die Pauschalreise für CHF 210 pro Person gebucht. Mitreisende haben nicht dieses Package, sondern die Busfahrt, die Luftseilbahn und die Fahrt zum Glacier de la Mer separat online gebucht für CHF 150 pro Person. Wir waren den ganzen Tag miteinander zusammen, ausser dass bei unserem Angebot ein Mittagessen enthalten war. Die grosse Preisdifferenz ist für uns nicht nachvollziehbar. Das Nachmittagsprogramm zum Glacier de la Mer fand nicht statt, weil Bahn geschlossen war. Mitteilung an uns erfolgte viel zu spät, erst um 14.30 Uhr! Als Entschädigung erhielten wir nur CHF 20 pro Person zurück, trotz Reklamationen unsererseits.

Good morning, Thank you for your comment. You bought a package for the independant tour, the bus round trip, the cable car, the lunch and the mountain train. This means it's a multipass valid for all the activities. If you buy the cable and the train separately it's more expensive. The cable car is 80.- CHF and the train is 43.- CHF but if you buy them together it's 100.- CHF so if the train is close it's 100-80 = 20.- back. Because of the low frequentation they decided to close the train, there is nothing we could about it. We hope you still enjoyed the cable car ride as it has the best view on Chamonix. Best regards
