The bus ride had some great scenery. Sadly the Gondola does not run from 11/15-12/15 for routine maintenance. Instead of shorting the day, we were left to roam around Chamonix for 3 or so hours just waiting for the Train ride. Most restaurants were closed because it was morning. All there was, was ski shops and resorts. It got very boring. We were very disappointed. For the 4 of us, it was $721.00. Not a cheap trip. If you choose this tour mak

This is a wonderful tour, the only thing that would have made it better is if we could have gone to the top. Beware the 500 steps down to the glacier you have to climb back up but worth the trek down.
