    약 2000미터 높이에서의 비행은 정말 최고였습니다. 다소 처음에는 예약관련하여 문제가 생겨 비행을 할수 없게될까봐 너무 조마조마했지만 결국 비행시간을 맞춰주셔서 다행히 비행할수있었습니다. 같이 비행하는 파일럿 요한은 시크했지만 전문가의 포스가 넘쳤고 30분간의 행복한 비행을 했습니다. 최고였어요~~ 꼭 샤모니에 온다면 도전해보세요

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!
