Well run tour - we just did cable car up the mountain and then spent remainder of the day in Chamonix which was a real highlight. Very enjoyable day out.

Unfortunately we didn't get to ride the train to the glacier. The train was not running because of a derailment earlier in the week. Tour guide Niel was very knowledgeable and friendly

The day started out rather cloudy however the sky cleared and Mont Blanc was at its best! The train was out of service so we went on a ski lift cable car instead? Beautiful views!
