There was a total lack of commentary throughout the entire tour. Instructions were provided on how to use the gondola and where and when to meet, but no information at all on the area, the mountain, seasonal activity, etc. The tour write up could have done a better job describing how to see Mant Blonc which requires you to take the gondola. All you see on the cog RR are glaciers. Chamonix is a neat village with nice shops and good restaurants. Tour was very late in leaving. Bus was overbooked.

This was pretty much a logistical assist more than a guided tour. It started out pretty disorganized with everyone guessing what to do. From there the guide told us, and two full coaches full of people, that she would, “tell us later” what to do. After that we were pretty much “frog-marched” to the Cable Car and the train. Information or history shared was minimal, the guide moved pretty quickly without looking back to see if her charges were still with her, and for most of the time we all looked to each other for guidance. The Cable car was amazing and the train provided fantastic views. These are recommended. Lunch was on our own with a great variety of cafes to choose from. Compared with many other La Vacanza Travel excursions and tours we’ve done, this was the least informative and helpful. If you are just looking for someone to provide a nice coach ride and to reserve your tickets, then this one is for you.

Norman was the best tour guide. Trip was absolutely worth it - stunning views, ample time for exploration, and comfortable transportation. Highly recommend.

Well organized cable car ride, the weather was cooperative. We saw the tip of Mt Blanc. The ice cave is a bit wet/melted, but it was fun to walk down.

Great tour! David was an excellent guide. He told us what to expect and was with the group all day. The highlights were the glass box and the ice caves, but the whole day was great!
