It was truly an amazing and magnificent tour to the beautiful village of Chamonix and the Mont Blanc. After a smooth pick up and ride by Sky Tours from Geneva at 08.30 in the morning we arrived approximately 1 hr later at Chamonix. The tour was lead by Kim and Marie who were the hosts. I forgot the name of the driver but he was an excellent driver who brought us smoothly to Chamonix and back to Geneva. The view from Aiguille du Midi at the Mont Blanc and the Swiss, French and Italian Alps was stunning and breathtaking due to the clear and beautiful weather conditions. In the afternoon we went up Montenvers with the famous red train. At the top we had a stunning view of Mer de Glace. I want to end with a big hail to the hosts Kim and Marie and the driver. They made the trip worthwhile and fun. We recommend the 2 hosts Kim and Marie of Sky Tours to everyone who want to visit Chamonix and the Mont Blanc. A job well done!
