Absolutely amazing tour with La Vacanza Travel. The experience will give us ever lasting memories. Truly, knowledgeable, friendly tour guide, made such a difference. Highly recommend using them, if you want to cramp in as many things to do as possible in only a few days.

As per review below cable car and train were out of action due to bad weather, so we were left in Chamomix for the whole day, luckily I caught an early bus back but many others didn’t. Paid £200 got £100 refunded back, so paid £100 for a return bus journey.

We had booked the trip to Chamonix and Mont Blanc including the cable chair and the train to the Mer de glace, we were 79 people on the bus. When we were on the way up to Chamonix they told us that the day before they couldn’t go to Mont Blanc due to the strong wind and they thought today would be the same. When we arrived to Chamonix, obviously, the cable chair, and therefore the Mont Blanc, was closed. We stayed in a small town like Chamonix from 9:30 to 16:30, with nothing more than a 15minute tour. They don’t say anything about the possibility of more than half of the trip being cancelled until you are on they way to Chamonix so they can charge you the tour and give you a partial refund, the price of the cable chair and the train. When we talked to the guide he said that buses must leave, otherwise they would have to refund the whole trip, as he said, when talking to the manager of the office she told us they couldn’t give a total refund because we had used the bus and the guide. They charge you for something otherwise you wouldn’t take. Be aware of the possibility of your trip being cancelled. They totally ruined our day.

Excellent cable car trip. Unfortunately the Glacier Train was cancelled due to the weather. Coach journey was very smooth and our guide most helpful and knowledgeable.

One, if not the best, experience when visiting Geneva ... hope to this with my wife again =) Tour guide very friendly and experienced, the duration of the tour was perfect. We did have weather on our side, no rain or snow, but do remember to bring good winter clothing.
