The tour mainly provides the main transport and tickets and the group will meet the guide at specific points in the itinerary. It’s good for people who would want a more free and easy schedule. We went in May 2022 and the Mer De Glacé was a little disappointing as many glaciers have disappeared and entry into the ice cave and crystal gallery was banned due to safety checks. As a result, we only spent twenty minutes there. The train ride up was decent though. The cable car ride to Mount Blanc was good but we would recommend all to understand the different facilities at the summit and plan your time for them. We didn’t have too much time at the summit so we did not get to the do the one with the glass flooring. Overall, a convenient option from Geneva.

With this tour, you're paying for the coordination of transport and activities and not much else. Our guide was not particularly helpful or knowledgable, but it was nice to be able to not have to worry about coordinating the transport or timing ourselves. The activities themselves are amazing -- 100 percent recommend the visit to Chamonix/Mont Blanc -- the "tour" is take it or leave it.

This was definitely an unforgettable experience. Mont Blanc is such a beautiful place, I was in awe the whole time! Only thing I didn’t like about this trip was the cable cars - I guess my expectations didn’t match the real life experience of being crammed into one cable car with about 40 others was scary, especially with covid still about. The tour guide, neils(?), was really knowledgeable and I learnt a lot about both Geneva and charmonix.
