Mt Blanc is something to behold. Google it before you go to get a better perspective of what you are looking at. We took the gondola/cable car up and while it was quite pricey, it was worth it. My biggest complaint was that for the amount we paid for the gondola (67 Euros/adult, 56 Euros/youth), we shouldn't have been packed... More

I booked a one-way trip from Chamonix to Geneva airport in February 2015 for a ride on 30 June 2015. We appeared at the pick up location 5 minutes early, at 8.15 am, and once the window had passed at 8.55 am, we called the Cham Express emergency number and the rude woman on the phone insisted the driver had...

If Disney needed a ski village to model this would be it. Just adorable. Fantastic scenery. We were there in May and the weather was beautiful with the gorgeous mountains surrounding. So glad we went even for one night.

The minute you get off the train and walk outside it takes your breath away. The most amazing scenery I have ever laid eyes on. For my first time in the snow it was remarkable. A very beautiful little township with the kind of buildings that make you feel like you have traveled back in time. The cable lift will... More

My first time seeing snow (Native Floridian) in the middle of June. Stunning, I was in awe of the natural world. You must take the trip to the highest point. Pricy, cold but worth it.

Buy the daily lift pass. Take the train to ice cave first, then the 3 hours track to Aguile du midi. Then go up to the highest point, take a beer, enjoy the view.

If you want all the comfort of a small city right in the middle of the mountains this is the place. Plenty of things to do. A night at the casino, morning paragliding afternoon shopping and dinner in one of the great resto you might have the chance to spot there

It was a superb place to spend a few days during our Swiss-French holiday. Easily one of the best days I have spent. It was off season, so the streets were relatively quiet and it did rain on one day. But nothing would take away the charm and magic of this town. Recommended.
