Take a day trip to Chamonix from Geneva and spend time skiing at one of the world’s most renowned resorts.

The guide indicated that the weather was not good at Chamonix that day but he didn't explain how badly it would affect our experience. He and his company, Key Tours, knew the conditions based on the weather report, the Chamonix ski resort website information, and his own experience skiing the slopes and the company's experience leading tours. We should have been given the opportunity for a refund or to book on another day. Our skiers were completely drenched with rain after 1 hour on the slopes. We were taken up a cable car with windows completely covered with wet snow and fog - couldn't see a thing. We were brought home at 12:30 (we paid for a full day tour). I contacted Viatour for a refund, and Key Tours only refunded 1/2 the cost. In my opinion they wasted our money and time by not offering to reschedule the trip. Very disppointed.

This is a great choice if you're looking for a day trip into Chamonix! Bus ride - easy to get to, informative and organized! The guide spoke many languages Cable Car Ride - a must! You go early enough to bypass all the lines(tickets are handed out during the bus trip to France) Skiing - if you plan accordingly and manage your timing, you should have enough time to grab your rentals and ski for about 1.5hrs When you're done with the cable car and skiing, you have enough time to walk around the cute and quaint Chamonix town and check out the shops - so much to do and see! At around 5:30pm the bus departs and you head back to Geneva.

£302 for 2 persons, I thought every penny will worth my Full Day Trip. On arrival at 10 am, we were told that Aiguille de Midi Cable car will be delayed to 11 am. Then we were told its not going before 13 00. During which, Brevent is proposed as an option which is around 1000 m less compared to what was paid for. At 1300, we were informed the Cable Car is not going for the day. Then, the Red train to Montenvers... Mer de Glace.. Ice cave is closed. Keytours do provide you with an Unlimited Day Pass.. when they know the activities are not in service. Surely, NON REFUNDABLE. Keytours in this business for many years.. they know which service is on or off. I paid for Aiguille de Midi.. NOT Brevent. Behind the cute smile of the Guide Neil, hides a hypocrite well trained staff. To end, I will suggest NOT to book with these people, better pay few more quids, go there on the spot and do your activities folks.

The guide was very nice and scenery was beautiful. But I purchased the 1/2 day ski trip with the Midi Cable car ride but was only able to ski. The guide told me it would be better to just ski because the shop where we get the gear closes from 12-3pm. I just feel like it was a very expensive ski trip, for that I could have taken a shuttle over and bought the entrance myself. I also wonder what beautiful views I missed out on by not taking the cable car ride

Slightly disappointed in this trip. Parking at the station was difficult and the bus would not wait for us even though it waited for those who were taken off of the bus when entering France. When we arrived at the mountain we were told that the tickets would work anywhere, that we found to be untrue as we waited for over 30 minutes for the tram only to be told that the tickets that did not work. All in all an ok day. The equipment was not great and the fact that there were no helmets to rent was really disappointing.
