WOW WOW WOW this was magnificent. the cable car ride up the mountains was an absolute thrill. We had a perfect morning and could see for ever. Although the glass observatory was closed which was a bit dissappointing neverless the view from the platform at the top where eye popping.

It's taken me a while to get around to writing this as we did the walk in July 2014 with Northwest Walks. We did a guided walk with Steve and there was never a hiccup along the way. The scenery is unbelievable and the walk is hard and does take you out of your comfort zone. By this I mean... More

We went to Chamonix to see Mont Blanc. We had never been there and decided to take the cable car up to Aiguille du midi. It took only 30 minutes to reach the top at 4 842 m. There are two parts. First you take one cable car to the middle station. It is relaxing to get to the first... More

It is such a beatiful place. You have to see it at least once. I loved the panorama, the weather is great there, the price is quite good regarding the experience. You can eat there and shoot photos, the employees will help you. At the top you also can buy souvenirs.

Our visit here was fantastic..! The village of Mont Blanc is quaint, clean and easy for tourists to find your way around; everything is within walking distances. Many, many fantastic restaurants and bistros with plenty of shops for all your tourist needs… The real highlight was our journey up the mountain, to the top. What an adventure; such a fantastic...

Brilliant. Although a little bit pricy, worth it. Go early morning as it is known that in the afternoon the clouds might come over the mountain and you might not have the view site you may have early mornings. Although the cafeteria is a little pricy a hot chocolate should be taken to warm yourself against the cold.

The view of the Mont Blanc from Chamonix is amazing and although i have not personally climbed it, many of my friends have. On a clear day you can see what god did on his day of rest.

We arrived late in the evening without any reservations but because of Trip Advisor and a wonderful young man at one of the hotels we found a charming inn where we also dined!

When you get to the top you have a breath taking view. The area on top has a gift shop, and nice overlooks on all sides of the mountain top. There is a midway stop if you would like to get off and visit there. It looked like a restaurant type place. We did not stop.

Wonderful experience - epecially if you can get the cable car to the very top and stand on the 'glass floor' hanging out over the mountain. Very scary if you do not like heights.
