Our recent trip was fantastic. We saw so much and loved every minute of it. Our transportation with GVA Transfers was great. The vehicle was very clean and comfortable. The hotel pick up was very convenient and very prompt.
Our driver Evan was the best. He provided so much information about everything we were seeing. He provided time for pictures along the ride.
I would highly recommend this tour and the travel provided by GVA.
Stunning village. A great variety of shops. Easy to negotiate shops and streets i.e. no steps and steep elavations. This was my favourite day of my three weeks in Europe. Stunning views at the top of the cable car. Electric train was a nice ride, but I am not sure the ice tunnels are worth the scores of steps down and up. Even without the cable car rides, this village is stunning, maybe even more beautiful from the village than at the top of the mountain.
The trip is basically just transport to the village, and the guide tells you what to do with the tickets etc. If you booked the lunch option, he basically will walk you to the restaurant for a three course lunch - which when it is busy, may take more than an hour. Personally, I enjoyed exploring the town and buying my own lunch as there was plenty of take away options that were totally delicious.
BEWARE - our driver told us that the other driver would collect us at 5pm. This other driver drove off at 5pm because when he was asked three for Geneva, he thought he was being asked if he was a taxi, and said no, this is a private tour bus and drove off. Lucky one of the guys with me had the previous driver's mobile number, as this first driver had to call this other one to turn around and pick us up. Part of the problem is that the second driver wasn't told how many people he was expecting and so didn't realise he had to wait for us three but we were on time. There are trains to Geneva - if you find yourselves being left behind! Make sure you have a contact mobile number!
You could maybe pre-book the cable car and do this trip yourself - not sure how much cheaper it would be. But it was easy to be collected from the hotel and go straight up the cable care - avoiding the very long queues. Great day in this quaint village.
The tour was incredible, breathtaking views. Thomas, the tour guide was excellent, very friendly, gave us a lot of information and answered a lot of our questions. He had our ride tickets ready, dropped us off and picked us up on time, at the end of the day. This day trip is a most. Wonderful experience
I recently had a wonderful trip with Gva Transfers to Chamonix. The driver who collected me, who's name was Thomas was on time and his bus was clean. I sat close to the driver and everyone was offered refreshments. The journey was smooth and Thomas explained some history about Chamonix and the things we would get to see and do. We were escorted by Thomas to the Mt Blanc Cable car and given our priority passes. The journey to the top took around 15 mins. It was probably the best view I have ever seen and felt like being on top of the world. Later when we came back down- Thomas was waiting for us and recommended a great place to eat and then accompanied us to get some incredible french pasteries and coffee. After our feast we were taken to the Montenvers train to visit the sea of Ice, This was stunning- so stunning that I was around 10 mins late to get back down and meet the rest of the group. However no worries as the minibus and Thomas were there and the air con was firing!!! 1 hr later Im back at my hotel in Geneva - Thanks for a great trip- perfect from start to finish.
