Tramway Du Mont Blanc Reviews & Ratings
Fantastic views of the peaks glaciers and sheer slopes! Great way of getting half way up mt blanc, if you fancy cheating.
Took this trip to explore more of the Mont Blanc range and wasn't disappointed. Incredible journey up the side of the mountains, sharing the trip with mountaineers who were off to the summit. Good choice of walks from the top - clothing for cooler weather & good footwear essential.
Very poor experience. We asked for tickets to chamonix at the cashier desk and were sold tickets on a trip for hikers that doesn’t go to chamnoix. The cashier explained which cable cars were open and closed, yet the train doesn’t go to them anyway! After wasting 3h of our afternoon we returned to the cashier to ask for a refund and were told to walk to TMB’s office up the road so we did. We were told to complain via email for a refund. So more time wasted and we will see if we can get our money back. We then had to drive to chamonix and stay over so all in all about €150 down. Thanks TMB
TMB - Tramway view from Belleview before return to Le Fayet in the valley. Best to start at Le Fayet rather than Les Houches
Fantastic tramway with amazing views of Mont Blanc, the valleys below, and the towns nearby as you ascend on its west side. You definitely want to be on the right side on the way up and the left side on the way back down for the best views. Bring your lunch and take the 11am tram up and the 2pm tram back down if you don't plan to hike much, otherwise give yourself more time. There are cafes and restaurants, but if you cam,.pack your own!
