Stunning! David was great tour guide. Train was closed due to weather but we were given other options or refund for ticket. Too cloudy at top to see anything but in the middle it was gorgeous!

This was a great tour. It all depends on weather. Luckily most of the time there were breaks in the clouds that allowed for some really special moments at the top of Chamonix. Unfortunately the optional train ride was cancelled due to I believe repairs to the tracks due to an avalanche. I opted for a refund for that optional excursion. But the town of Chamonix was wonderful to lazily spend time in and eat drink and shop. David our tour guide was great. They filled all 50 seats on the bus…which was fine because the group of people were nice and diverse.

What a wonderful experience! It was an amazing experience to see the Alps, and this tour was fun, informative, safe and comfortable. The bus ride there was comfortable and easy. Antoine was our guide and he was entertaining and informative, if you were interested in learning more. As a solo traveler, I was happy that he was easy to find and willing to help. I actually had no idea when booking this excursion what I was in for, and it exceeded my expectations. Perfect view of Mont Blanc from Aiguille Du Midi - of course this is weather permitting - and we were even able to view the Matterhorn from the top. We were not able to take the train ride to the glacier and ice caves, due to longer than expected maintenance work - completely unpredictable by the tour company or anyone else - but Antoine made sure to take us to another vista to view the glacier and again, kept us engaged and interested. The town of Chamonix is beautiful and has plenty of places to shop and purchase macarons! Would definitely do again.

Me and wife had few bookings with La Vacanza Travel around new year 2024 in New Zealand and recently we went to Glacier 3000 and then to Mont Blanc through La Vacanza Travel from Geneva. We appreciate there detailed information about itinerary, on time performance and honest pricing. Overall 5 star rating.

We booked our premium tour to Chamonix - Mont-Blanc from Geneva with Keytours S.A. and had a wonderful trip! Our guide Chris, was very pleasant and knowledgeable with the right amount of commentary throughout the trip allowing time for everyone to enjoy the beautiful sights along the way and the incredible mountain experience. We got everything that was promised in the brochure and the bonus of glorious weather for amazing views of Mont Blanc from Chamonix, Montenvers, and Aiguille du Midi. Unforgettable!
