Chamonix Guided Tour

Enjoy free time at the top to explore the terraces, and take in panoramic views over the Chamonix Valley and the peaks beyond. On a clear day, you may even see the Matterhorn, the Swiss mountain made famous on packages of Toblerone chocolate. There's also a café, where you can have a hot chocolate or enjoy a light snack (own expense).

Chamonix with Aiguille du Midi Cable Car
Take the cable car to the summit of the Aiguille du Midi with your guide and enjoy free time at the top to soak up the views. Afterward, meet your guide at a pre-arranged time and travel back down into the heart of Chamonix town center.

Browse the shops at your leisure, perhaps enjoy a refreshing drink on a sun-drenched terrace in town (own expense) and admire the many chocolate-box chalets and boutiques you find.

Chamonix with Cable Car and Mer de Glace
Hop aboard the cable car and travel to the summit of the Aiguille du Midi with your guide. Take in the panoramic mountain views during your free time at the peak, then return to resort level for lunch in a local café or restaurant at your leisure (own expense).

Meet your guide at the train station then board one of the charming red carriages of the scenic cog railway. Take the steep, picturesque journey up the mountainside to Montenvers and the Mer de Glace glacier, and listen as your knowledgeable guide points out the soaring summits of Les Drus, Les Grandes Jorasses and Les Grands Charmoz. Visit the ice caves and museums, then return via the cog railway to Chamonix and enjoy a little free time for shopping at your leisure (time permitting).

Full-Day Guided Tour with Lunch
Travel up by cable car to the summit of the Aiguille du Midi with your guide and enjoy free time at the summit to admire the views over the peaks beyond. Afterward, meet your guide at a pre-arranged time and head to a local restaurant in the village for a 3-course lunch.

After lunch, hop aboard the cog-wheel train and ascend the mountainside to Montenvers and the Mer de Glace glacier. Take in beautiful views over the mighty glacier, and explore the ice caves and museums at your leisure.

When it’s time to leave the soaring Alpine peaks of Chamonix behind, travel back to central Geneva where your tour will come to an end.

An awesome day which we thouroughly enjoyed from beginning to end. The coach was comfortable and clean and our tour guide was very knowledgable and witty. On arrival in Chamonix we were given our ski passes which enabled us easy access onto the cable cars and the train up to the glacier. Crystal clear blue skies allowed us to witness the most breathtaking views. The lunch was also delicious. Overall a highly recommended and well organised day trip. We shall definitely be returning.

Great Trip!! Lovely location our guide Neil provided just the right amount of assistance for my preference. If you want someone to hold your hand all day this is not for you.
