Overview

Explore the frozen witchery of the French Alps on a private day-trip to Chamonix, the most famous resort in France, and Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Europe, from Geneva. Cross the French-Swiss border and ascend to the summit of Aiguille du Midi for sweeping panoramas of the area's Alpine magnificence. Pleasure your palate with the gourmet offerings of a Michelin-starred restaurant in Chamonix and then feast your eyes on a picturesque tableau of countryside as you ride the renowned Montenvers Railway. Relish the freedom and flexibility of this private tour, on which the undivided attention of your guide is guaranteed.
  • Private day trip from Geneva to Mont Blanc and Chamonix
  • Take a scenic 1.5-hour drive across the Switzerland border and through France's Arve Valley
  • Beat the crowds with early morning arrival to Mont Blanc, the tallest mountain in Western Europe
  • Ride the world's steepest cable car up the Mont Blanc massif
  • Enjoy staggering views of the Swiss, French and Italian Alps from the summit of Aiguille du Midi
  • Be treated to a Michelin-star meal at Albert Premier Restaurant in Chamonix
  • Ride the Montenvers Railway to the famous Mer de Glace glacier
Depart from your Geneva hotel in a private luxury vehicle and admire gorgeous views of the Swiss countryside as you travel across the Switzerland-France border to Chamonix, a charming village located at the foot of Mont Blanc. Gaze at the towering, snow-capped spire of Western Europe’s tallest mountain as you approach and relish the lack of crowds at the 15,780-foot (4,800-meter) peak in the early morning. 

Climb into a cable car and ascend to the summit of Aiguille du Midi on the world’s highest vertical ascent cable car. Gasp as you soar to a height of 12,605 feet (3,842 meters) in 20 minutes and then absorb breathtaking views of the Alpine panorama as you reach the summit. Capture photographs of the Swiss, Italian and French Alps and revitalize with a steaming hot chocolate at the terrace café if you wish (own expense). 

Descend to sea level and head to Albert Premier Restaurant, an acclaimed 2-star Michelin restaurant, to pamper your palate with a luxurious array of fine French gastronomy. See the Itinerary section below for a sample menu. 

Suitably satisfied, climb aboard the Montenvers Railway for a scenic train ride through the mountains to Montenvers, an ideal vantage point from which to admire Mer de Glace. Gaze at the icy enchantment of the enormous glacier surrounded by mountain summits and then return to your private vehicle for the relaxing journey back to your Geneva hotel.

We had a great tour guide named Yolanda, who was able to give us great experiences even though the weather wasn't cooperating

While the weather did not cooperate (and we couldn't see anything from Mont Blanc), Patricia and our driver made everything worth it! A+! The restaurant was wonderful, the driving and access without the hassle of coordinating tickets was terrific! Still hopeful to do it again and see the view!
