Spectacular! Helped by the perfect weather. I did suffer a little, with the altitude at the highest point of Aiguille du midi, making it uncomfotable and returned early, but the features and walkways at the top are breath taking. The Mer de glass was awesome seeing the path it had taken and how it had carved through the rocks, the glacier is now a fraction of it's size, so to get close you had to climb down over 500 steps and back. There were several smaller glacters to be seen.

Worth the trip , very recommendable ❤️ our guide is good and the experiences is amazing and we all have the satisfying day. Its a wonderful thing to do to put on your list the ice sculpture was mesmerize but the 600 steps to come there is a big challenge

Couldn’t recommend anymore. Fantastic day out, thoroughly enjoyed it. Tour guide was great - super friendly and helpful… surprisingly good value in my opinion when countering coach, cable carts, train ride and tour guide
