Private Trip From Geneva to Chamonix & Montreux

3. Private Trip From Geneva to Chamonix & Montreux

Begin the delightful journey from your hotel, then sit back, relax and enjoy the impressive views of the Swiss countryside as you cross the border to France through the Arve Valley along the River Arve. Enjoy the spectacular scenery as you arrive at the remarkable Chamonix-Mont-Blanc – a well-known ski and holiday resort, where the first Winter Olympics was held in 1924. In Chamonix you will have leisure time for exploring the town on your own, gazing at the neighbouring mountains and glaciers lifting up to Mont Blanc. If you wish, you can take the highest cable car in Europe – Aiguille du Midi, and reach the kingdom of eternal snow, which will unravel a crystalline view over Mont Blanc cradled by the French, Swiss and Italian Alps. After returning back to Chamonix and having lunch at one of the local cafes, proceed with the journey to Montreux, which is firmly squeezed between Lake Geneva (Lac Leman), the vineyards of Lavaux and the Alps in the French-speaking region of Switzerland. Besides gazing at the panoramic views of Lake Leman, you can also find souvenir shops, boutique stores and traditional restaurants selling local food. One of the sights is the 3-meter Memorial of the worldwide popular singer and frontman of the rock band Queen - Freddie Mercury. The main landmark of Montreux, however, is the medieval Castle Chillon - built in the 11th century, located right on the rocky island of the Lake.  Your private transfer will then return you back to your hotel in Geneva.

What people are saying about Chamonix-Mont-Blanc

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.

Great tour, unforgettable views and places. Our host Vivi was very nice and attentive to everyone. The tour was well scheduled with enough time to do everything and easy transfers between places. A must do if you’re in Geneva.

Simply breathtaking. The cable car option is very highly recommended. The mountain train option was unavailable but I imagine that would have been spectacular as well.

The guide could have been more clear, but overall it was an amazing experience I would recommend!

very nice! everything went according to plan and the views are superb! 100% recommended
