Stunning Trip!
Cassandra_H, Sept 2023
Norman was the best tour guide. Trip was absolutely worth it - stunning views, ample time for exploration, and comfortable transportation. Highly recommend.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Good morning Norman is a great professional, he meets all the conditions for it, we are privileged to have him, he knows every corner of Chamonix/Mont Blanc hehehe. Thanks for trusting us; Chamonix/Mont Blanc is one of the most charming areas of the Alps. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards
Best tour!
Stacy_C, Sept 2023
Great tour! David was an excellent guide. He told us what to expect and was with the group all day. The highlights were the glass box and the ice caves, but the whole day was great!
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Good morning Chamonix/Mont Blanc is a beautiful, unique area and it is necessary to visit it even once in a lifetime. Being at the top of Europe is an adventure that must be lived. David is a champion, one of our best guides, it is a privilege to have him with us. Kind regards Keytours

The Alps are alive with spectacular views!!
Linda_S, Aug 2023
This was one of the highlights to my Geneva visit. Norman couldn’t have been any more accommodating and I loved his sense of humor. The incredible sights, friendly people and fabulous food were tops. Don’t pass up this trip if you are in the area.
Response from Host, Aug 2023

And Normunds is a splendid guide, a great professional. It is a privilege to have him with us. Kind regards Keytours
Great day out
Derek_S, Aug 2023
The little cafe at mid station was a gem well worth stopping at on the way back down. The ice cave was really good and the steps weren’t too bad to negotiate
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Good morning The steps to go to the Mer de Glace are special hehehe. It makes us very happy to read messages like yours, we are glad to know that you enjoy it. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Keytours
Christopher_L, Aug 2023
Disorganized. No backup plan in case of inclement weather. The guide was a little blase about instructions, directions, and meeting times. Insisted on packing 1 bus with 60 people, and the second bus with 10, instead of dividing the group equally.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Dear guest, We are very sorry that we have not met your expectations, we will take note to avoid this type of situation in the future. Have a good day. Kind regards Keytours
Amazing trip but...
MarieFrancoise_M, July 2023
- Get in the cable car ride to go to Aiguille du midi. - The picturesque views are worth it - Take the amazing train ride to the glacier During a busy season, you will spend most of your time in line and very likely to miss the bus at 5pm If you miss the first bus, you must catch the next at the bus station stop (another location close to main entrance) this was not clearly explained, that is my only negative experience as we luckily figured it out and got on the last bus to Geneva, so be on time!!!!!!
Response from Host, July 2023
Good Morning, We are glad to hear you liked the experience. The guide give map and explaination in the morning, we are also reachable by phone and email if needed. Happy you were able to catch the last bus and arrive safe. Hope to see you soon.
JAVIER_B, July 2023
I bought an SPANISH guided tour, but the guide, Cris only laught when I asked to repeat in spanish the comments. Víctor lies.
Response from Host, July 2023
Buenos días! Tal y como indicamos en Viator, el tour guiado se realiza en inglés, únicamente ofrecemos en castellano material por escrito. Lamentamos la molestia y esperamos que haya disfrutado de Chamonix y las vistas. Un saludo
Tour guide was not at all...
Deepesh_E, July 2023
Tour guide was not at all responsible and he was not willing to wait for us to come back to the finishing point.
Response from Host, July 2023
Good morning, We're very sorry you felt the guide was not with you. Our guides have the itinerary set and they take the clients to all of the different activities and after you have free time in each of them. Safe travel back home Thank you
Had to pay extra money to tour guide for full tour
Emily_H, July 2023
The description under the tour we purchased for our family of nine clearly says that all tickets included (see photo). On board the coach on the way to the tour, however, the tour guide told us that we had not paid for a full tour and demanded that we pay another $55 per person to have the full experience. Viator has not given an explanation for this additional fee, and will not refund it to us.
Response from Host, July 2023
Good morning, We are sorry to read your review there was a confusion as when you book your excursion you have to select the options for activities like the cable car and the mountain train. If you do not select the options they will not be included. We hope you still enjoyed the Chamonix Valley. Best regards. Keytours team
Okay trip
8qh77y4m6z, July 2023
Ice caves are overhyped. You can find the charm of Chamonix in Annecy near Geneva. Rather spend time on Mount Blanc. Except Mont Blanc all is hyped
Response from Host, July 2023
Good morning Annecy, Chamonix, Geneve, etc. They are destinations that all have their charm. We will always be here to make your stay the most pleasant. We hope to see you soon. Thank you so much! Kind regards Keytours
A good day trip!
Joni_H, June 2023
Trip was well organized and timings were clearly communicated by the guide. Weather was great that day and the cable car ride was smooth tho crowded. I didn’t join the train ride to see the glaciers so I had lots of time to explore the village and it was bigger than I thought. There was a marathon that day so village was crowded too but I enjoyed exploring it. There were many retailer shops, restaurants, etc..hence quite interesting..
Response from Host, July 2023
Good morning, thank you very much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the tour and its organisation. We are happy for you the weather was nice, and we wish you a nice holiday!
A good experience
Randall_R, June 2023
The Chamonix and Mt Blanc trip was great. We chose to just do the Midi and not the glacier trip which allowed us to tour the village and enjoy a good meal + sight seeing and shopping. I would like to do the glacier next time but doing that and the midi leaves little time to enjoy the village. Overall the trip was great and listen carefully to meeting locations or you will be lost.
Response from Host, June 2023
Hi! Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy you enjoyed the day at Chamonix and we hope to see you soon! We wish you a safe travel back home!
Must see for traveling in area!
Maria_N, June 2023
Full bus, difficult for tour guide to manage given changes with weather conditions. We all managed to make the final pick up point, but needed more notice of plan and options during day. We enjoyed final plan, but could feel guide’s stress.
Response from Host, June 2023
Good morning, Thank you for your review. Sometimes there are weather changes and the guide tries to arrange things to make the tour run smoothly. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed visiting our Chamonix tour and hope to see you again soon. Best regards Keytours team
Elevation experience
David_W, June 2023
Viator made it Easy to book trip and arrive everywhere with entry access. No waiting in lines for tickets. Easy easy easy. The views from the top of Mont Blanc was wonderful. Our guide gave advice for the trip and where to meet back up. He was very experienced. The train ride was enjoyable as well. Up up up.
Response from Host, June 2023
Good morning, thank you very much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the trip, the organisation and the guide. We hope you keep good souvenirs from the alps. Best regards
Fabulous day with breathtaking sights!!!
Marilyn_M, June 2023
Chris, our tour guide was fabulous. Kept us all informed every step of the way. Lots of history and beautiful scenery. Chris made sure we had plenty of time to explore, Was such a fun day from going up Mont Blanc on Gondolas, to taking a train up the side of the mountain to see glaciers. Breathtaking. I would recommend this to anyone.
Response from Host, June 2023
Good morning, thank you so much for your review. We will pass your message to Chris. See you soon
Sights worth seeing
Graham_F, June 2023
Tour guide very good and did her best to keep everyone under control. Well worth the visit but there are 560 steps to see the Ice cave which is beyond a lot of people’s capabilities. This should be made clear before booking
Response from Host, June 2023
Good morning, thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed the alps mountain and Chamonix Mont Blanc. It's mentionned prior that to get into the glacier there is 500 steps but the train ride until the terrace is ok for everyone. Best regards
Beautiful Day
Richard_O, June 2023
Absolutely stunning views from the top. The little town is charming and the ice caves were awesome. Our guide was very organized and nice. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
Great experience!
N_N, June 2023
Amazing tour and very professional and friendly guide. The waiting for the glass box was around 55 minutes for 10 seconds picture and this is the part i won’t recommend unless you want that experience (outside was worth more time). Overall, a day well spent!
Response from Host, June 2023
Good morning, thank you very much for your review. We are glad you enjoy the your day and the guide! We hope you have good memories of the french alps! best regards
A High-Altitude Adventure Worth Taking
Cinda_C, June 2023
This day-long excursion was five-star. From the moment we were greeted by the guide, Chris, at the Geneva bus station until we returned, the tour exceeded our expectations. It was an excellent introduction to the breathtaking French Alps with loads of information, remarkable views and a taste of Chamonix, one of Europe's most desirable mountain destinations. Highly recommend this outing, particularly if you have limited time to explore the alps. Once again, Viator was spot on with its service and delivery. Thank you--California Steve
Response from Host, June 2023
Hello, thank you for your lovely 5-stars review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your tour with us. We will pass your message to our guide, Christos. Stay safe, Best regards, Keytours team.
