I went to Geneve for the weekend and took a trip to Chamonix. Our tour guide/ bus driver Zak was fantastic. He really had a great sense of humour and made our experience so much better. He was wonderful. He went above and beyond what he needed to do for us and we greatly appreciated it. Chamonix was so beautiful. The large Cable Cart was closed but Zak took us to a smaller one which was still a wonderful experience. I would highly reccomend this trip!

The advertisement for the tour highlights access to Mt Blanc and the Glaciers. They were closed and we were not warned ahead of time. In fact virtually the entire town was closed until December. There was nothing to do. We left early. A total waste of time and money.

The mountains are beautiful, the shops are lovely and the onion soup was delicious. I wouldn’t recommend going to Chamonix at the beginning of November as most attractions, plus many pubs & shops, are closed at that time.

Awfully rude man checked me on the coach, so not good first impression but the on board guide David was lovely and the drive was pleasant. Walked around Chamonix for a couple of hours, worth the visit, such a pretty town, and was back in Geneva mid afternoon.

I am very disappointed in La Vacanza Travel. I had to miss my scheduled time because of a family situation. There were plenty of seats on the next scheduled bus but I was charged an additional 50e unnecessarily.
