“Beautiful Views with Great Tram Ride”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

If you are looking for a magnificent view of the mountains in France and Italy, this is the spot. Breathtaking! The first day we were there it rained in town and snowed on the top of the mountain. We went to the top and you hardly see anything through the snow but the next day we ventured again. While it was raining in town, we climbed above the clouds to witness great views. Highly recommend.

“As the young say; totes amazeballs!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

this was the trip of the holiday. We were so lucky with the weather, Chamonix in sunshine, cloud midway up, second cable car took us through the cloud into brilliant sunshine. Yes it wasn't cheap but still worth it.
Advice - keep an eye on the weather, if possible book tickets in advance so that you don't have to queue an age to get tickets. If in a group, get tickets together from same booth (if not booked in advance) as otherwise you may get t=different time slots.
For those of you follicley challenged (like me) remember your hat or factor 50!!!
Overall a trip strongly recommended, such amazing views to be forever remembered :)

“3rd Time Lucky”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Great views from the top on 23/07/2014 at 6;45am - got the weather window at last on attempt number three despite the worst July weather on record in Alps since 1965! (According to the Swiss press). Charged up and down in 26 hours via Gouter Ridge - Grand Couloir crossing scary in the afternoon though!

“It may be the highest but it's not the most impressive”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

It's one of those mountains you have to have seen at some point in your life and it is indeed quite imposing. We found the best views to be from the hiking trail up to the Glacier des Bossons.
