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.

This trip was excellent. The cable car, the train to the ice cave and the village of Chamonix was well worth the drive from Geneva. The weather was perfect and we saw amazing views from the top of Mont Blanc.

My wife and I did this tour on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2019. Bus was on time and comfortable, bus driver was nice and safe driver. Tour guide Neil was nice and informative, gave us all the information we needed to have a good time, including the options for side trips. Weather was great, Chamonix is a quaint little Alpine village, but great fun to visit. Only thing we did not like was being crowded into the first cable car that takes you half way up the mountain, but there is noting the tour guides could do about it. It was well worth it for the view of the French Alps, above the clouds! Another happy and successful tour from La Vacanza! Dr. David A. Williams, Phoenix, Arizona

This activity can not be put into words to express the beauty of the mountains covered in ice. The Chamonix glass box is an activity that will provide memories for a lifetime. Such a pleasant experience for pictures to be taken. The only negative was that our tour guide "Maria" was not very clear at all about the pick up point and as a result many people arrived over 30 minutes late to the departure point which was irritating having to wait for others in order to leave.
