After reading mixed reviews I was worried this would be a bad experience. It wasn’t. It was amazing. The bus ride was comfortable and along the way Niels told us interesting facts about Geneva and Chamonix. Once we arrived we were given clear instructions and were taken care of and knew where to go all day. We did all the extras and I’m so glad we did. Such an unforgettable day!

Both organisation and guide were amaizing, especially considering the pandemic. I wanted more time in Montenvert than Mont Blanc, and I was able to arrange it by my own schedule.

An absolutely great day. The trip up the mountain on the cable car was a highlight. We had a blue sky day so the views were the best. The trip on the train was just as good with fantastic views. The town is a beautiful place to wander around with lots of shops to explore and cafes to enjoy

For our first trip to Geneva we wanted to see Chamonix, Montenvers with a tour rather than plan the logistics ourselves. Despite a light rain, the Tour was excellent, the views were amazing and our guide Neil was very entertaining with lots of insight into what to do in Geneva after the tour ended.

If the weather is good, and the Mer de Glace glacier is open to visit, Montenvers is a must. The Aiguille de Midi (summit of Chamonix) is an incredible experience regardless of the weather.

Great day. Well organised and host Neil, provided great information about the destination and what we could do there. Tour ran like clockwork. Well worth the cost.
