I take a star because this tour was not done at the last minute. Finally it was changed to the Glacier 3000 tour, which I will comment on. The trip was long but not boring thanks to the landscape that could be seen from the window. At all times the guide explained to us what, how, when and where we should act. The problem was the short time of the experience at the destination itself since they lost a little more than 5 hours in Geneva coming and going.

Amazing ride! It is self-guided but inside the bus the guide gave a lot of information on what to do in Geneva and Chamonix.
