Full description
Board a bus from Geneva to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, and in 90 minutes, arrive at this Alpine village to discover the beauty of the mountains. In the morning, ride up the cable car to the summit. At more than 3842 meters, be impressed by the Majestic Mont-Blanc and all the peaks around you. If you are feeling adventurous, take a breathtaking step into the void. Three glass walls, the glass floor, and glass ceiling panels give you a unique experience enhanced by 1000 meters of free air directly under your feet, in total safety! Look around and admire the highest peaks in Western Europe, and view the Bossons Glacier, with the greatest descent in Europe, from a dramatic perspective.  Snap some incredible landscapes from one of the numerous panoramic terraces, or warm your hands around a coffee from the shop. Head back to the village, and take a freetime to put your sensations back together before you take the Mountain train Montenvers to discover the Ice Sea. This is the largest glacier of France, featured in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. If it's open ( not garanteed) Take the steps down to visit the Ice Caves. Enjoy the museum and the view from the panoramic terrace, before you head back.

Guide was really good and helpful. We couldn’t go to the top of the mountain as the 2nd cable car was out of use due to technical difficulties however our guide gave us alternative options which were good. Chamonix was incredible, the views were to die for. We are going back again.

Excellent transportation and our guide took our group to the front of the line so we did not have to wait. Small group with plenty of time for each activity except for the final one. We lost our guide after getting off the cog train and that caused us to miss our 5:00 bus back to Geneva. Fortunately she had told us that there was one more at 6:30, at a different stop that we had to ask around to find.

We had a fantastic day and Chamonix. What a beautiful place. Surrounded by the alps, lots of nice shops and restaurants. We’re planning to return. It was lovely to see another destination outside of Geneva. The guide was helpful but not too overbearing. He just guided us on times, and where and when to catch the gondola up to Mont Blanc. Brilliant (and tiring!) day all round. But 100% worth it. Views were spectacular! Get my guide app made everything straight forward also.
