I used the train which was an 0810 departure with very few people on board. The train seemed new with good facilities for recreational equipment such as skies and mountain bikes. This train was far better gthan anything in the UK!

A wonderful journey through the picturesque mountainside on a clean and comfortable train with panoramic views. Breathtaking views of the Mont Blanc massif as you approach Chamonix - probably the best part of the trip. Chamonix itself is lovely and well worth a visit, with lots of great bars, shops and cafes. Martigny is much quieter and probably not worth... More

Great trip we have taken from Martigny, Switzerland to Chamonix. The train goes through picturesque area of Col des Montets, Argentiere, Chamonix Valley, down to St Gervais.

I actually hitch hiked from Chamonix to Martigny but on the way back i took the very expensive, 22 Franc train across the border. It's almost one Franc per kilometre which is very unsettling. The ride is quite scenic and you can stop off at a lot of places along the way. Matrimony is a village in the valley so... More

The full journey begins at St Gervais france, and ends in martingy, Switzerland. Our portion was from Chamonix to Martingy. There is plenty of mountain scenery along the way, with lots of stunning views, so pick a good sunny day to make the most of them. The trains have extra roof windows on some carriages so make sure you head... More

We took the Mont Blanc Express from Martigny to Chamonix (and return), as part of a railtour holiday. This was probably the highlight of our tour, as we took the train (part cog railway for the 20% gradients!), through spectacular scenery, dark forests, wild gorges and towering peaks. This is a "must do"; it was an unforgettable trip !

We caught the train on a Sunday to take us up into the mountains for a walk. We didn't realise that it was a special day at the Alpine Zoo and so the train was packed with families. The cog section was spectacular and general scenery lovely. Just one an hour though so do check times. Fortunately the stations we... More

We had no idea what we were getting into. We took the Mont-Blanc Express to Chamonix Mont-Blanc. It's worth doing a little research so you know where to leave from and what time the trains leave. Once we got our tickets, it was very easy. Sit by the windows on the way up. We found both sides of the train... More

The trip from Chamonix to Martigny requires a brief train change in Valorcine. This is definitely a train trip worth taking if you enjoy mountain views, plunging ravines & quiet villages scenes. The whole trip takes just over 90 minutes one way, even with the change in trains. Overall worth seeing!
