Booked online and reserved tickets, so avoided queues. However, you are packed in like sardines in the cable cars to ascend and if you're short (like me) will be unable to see anything apart from the sweaty armpit next to you! At the top, however, the views are staggering. Loads of photo opportunities. A few people experienced altitude difficulties -... More

Wanted to do the must see attraction, however, price, waiting time and huge crowds made it like a Disney theme park, not my idea of a great time. Having read the reviews I am happy we did not believe the hype. I am sure the views are amazing but it is not very well organised there at all.

Well worth a visit ... Great views, it's expensive to get up there but it's well worth it. They are In The process of updating it it'll be even better when they've finished. Be aware it's at 3800 m and the lack of oxygen takes effect. Also take warm clothes there is often snow and ice up there even though... More

We went here with our friends from Le Mans and Lyon and we had to queue up to get telecabine to go atop and the view was just amazing on the top of Aiguille du Midi and this was the first time we were in snow and touched the sky. Amazing souvenir of Mont Blanc

This attraction is incredible accessed by a two stage cable car, a walk across a bridge then a ride in a lift to the top where the views are incredible.

I couldn't wait to get there to see the awesome view from that famous bridge so high up in the air! It did not disappoint...it is a breath taking view. My only disappointment was that the glass box portion of the attraction was closed and I really wanted to see that. If you go there just to stand in the... More

An absolute must see if you're in Chamonix France! An even better option is to take the funicular from La Palude on the Italian side, across the Alps to arrive in Chamonix!! When in La Palude, stay at La Vallee Blanche Hotel. A definite treat to cross the Alps this way!

Worth the queues (but go as early as possible), the views are by turns astounding, astonishing and sometimes plain scary! Fantastic to see climbers below and above from a safe viewpoint. Cable car to Hellbronner is also outstanding, suspended above the glacier - the new visitor centre on the Italian side is a huge improvement, though now attracts more crowds.Not... More
