The ride wasn't too long, about 1 1/2 hours. The guide was a bit grouchy but we ignored him. The town was so amazing and quaint. The lift to the top f Mont Blanc was scary. If you are afraid of heights you may want to think twice and the air was very thin! It was cold, icy and raining at the top so we didn't get to see much. The lunch was at the most adorable restaurant and we are still talking about it! Really loved it. The train ride was fun but again, if you are afraid of heights once you get up the hill on the train you may want to stay in the restaurant/store if you don't want to ride another lift down to the ice caves. Over 400 steps to climb up and down in the ice caves. All in all this was a pretty scary but fun adventure.

This was the highlight of our trip to Europe.
The tour guide was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Tickets are provided to you and then you're left to explore at your own leisure, which is very nice.

We had the lunch included, which was at a nice restaurant in town and definitely exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend it!!!
