This is worth the money though it isn't cheap. The views from the top on a clear day are spectacular.

Tips:

Go early - less wait and likely to be clear. On a weekday in late August there was minimal waiting either at the bottom or top at 8am. Once we had done what we wanted at the top we could go straight down.

Get a pass - this also allows access to many other cable cars and attractions such as Montenvers and the Mont Blanc Tramway. The cost is only a little more than the Aiguille cable car alone, and if you get it in advance that's one less queue you need to be in!

Reserve your ascent in advance - likewise with Tramway de Mont Blanc. You do this on the website for free (you still need to buy a ticket or pass at some point). If you do this and get your pass in advance you basically join the boarding queue at the alloted time, bypassing the much longer queue for people who do not have reservations or tickets.

It's cold at the top, so bring a coat

A trip up to Mt Blanc is worth every cent of the c. EUR 195 we paid for 2 adults + 2 young kids ... but its worth it. 2 amazing cable car rides take you almost to the top (but obviously not to the actual summit). Amazing views ... pick your day of you can ... we had clear blue sky but the weather can cha ge quickly up mountains so be warned. It was 30 deg at the base by 0 deg up top ... so remember warm clothes ... it is cold and windy up there ... and we went in near perfect conditions. Avoid the snacks up there ... take your own food and drink. Youd need a mortgage for 4 hot choc drinks + 4 bags of crisps ... but lesson learnt. Kids absolutely loved it... sure its expensive but you are going up Mt Blanc ... enjoy its worth every penny and minute of queuing.

Not cheap at 63-64 euros and better that you check the weather and reserve ahead. People who comes here likes to check this cable car item off so reservations helps. 2 stage ride and timing bit hard to understand to and fro, guess they need to manage both ways’ traffic.

We got the Mount Pass for few days in the internet before coming to Chamonix, not only it's way cheaper, it also cut the Q to buy tickets at some sites including to Aiguille du Midi. We only showed our cards to the staffs and they gave us numbers, we waited for about 40 mins before taking the gondola up to the first platform. It was a very busy day as it was sunny and on the long weekend, but the wait was worth it.

Once you arrived on the platform,the staff will give you number to go back down with exact time - pls note if you need to go back early, best to tell the staff on site, they may be able to give you earlier number and time to go back to Chamonix. The staff on the gondola back to Chamonix will call your number on the dedicated time, and they will only let the exact numbers to go. There were a group of tourists need to go down early cause they are late for their bus, but the staff won't let them till their number is up. So, ask for earlier number if you are in a rush. For us, 2 hrs is even not enough :))

Take your time to enjoy all the sites, and if you are brave and have time, take pic at the "Step into the Void"

No one tells you you have to book a particular car up. We arrived at 10 and got tickets for 3:30 intending to go to Italy which closes at 4. On reaching top at 3:50 we were told Hellebruner shut at 3:00 with no signs at bottom. On trying to descend back to Chamonix we were given tickets for descent at 6:00. Avoid unless you like being held hostage...
