Depart from your Geneva hotel in a private luxury vehicle and admire gorgeous views of the Swiss countryside as you travel across the Switzerland-France border to Chamonix, a charming village located at the foot of Mont Blanc. Gaze at the towering, snow-capped spire of Western Europe’s tallest mountain as you approach and relish the lack of crowds at the 15,780-foot (4,800-meter) peak in the early morning. 

Climb into a cable car and ascend to the summit of Aiguille du Midi on the world’s highest vertical ascent cable car. Gasp as you soar to a height of 12,605 feet (3,842 meters) in 20 minutes and then absorb breathtaking views of the Alpine panorama as you reach the summit. Capture photographs of the Swiss, Italian and French Alps and revitalize with a steaming hot chocolate at the terrace café if you wish (own expense). 

Descend to sea level and head to Albert Premier Restaurant, an acclaimed 2-star Michelin restaurant, to pamper your palate with a luxurious array of fine French gastronomy. See the Itinerary section below for a sample menu. 

Suitably satisfied, climb aboard the Montenvers Railway for a scenic train ride through the mountains to Montenvers, an ideal vantage point from which to admire Mer de Glace. Gaze at the icy enchantment of the enormous glacier surrounded by mountain summits and then return to your private vehicle for the relaxing journey back to your Geneva hotel.

While the weather did not cooperate (and we couldn't see anything from Mont Blanc), Patricia and our driver made everything worth it! A+! The restaurant was wonderful, the driving and access without the hassle of coordinating tickets was terrific! Still hopeful to do it again and see the view!
