Day Trip to Chamonix and Mont Blanc from Geneva

Hello,

We will be in Geneva October 13-15,2012. One of these days we want to take the trip to Chamonix and Mont Blanc.

One option I found would be to go with Viator Tours, which is fine but pricey. Can we do it on our own in one day?

Please advise.

Many Thanks in advance!

Hi NatashaMaya,

Yes, it's quite easy to do on your own.

Just use the bus site Gare Routiers:

(terrible url, but it'll work)

Use the drop-down menu to select "Regular Lines Region Bordercross" to get a pdf for the schedules into the French Alps. The fares and schedules are right there. It's about 2h each way.

Have fun!

This is the "normal" link: http://gare-routiere.ch/. Bus departs from Place Dorcière that is perpendicular to rue du Mont-Blanc, midway between the main train station and the lake.
