    Disappointment…times were not accurate, information was not accurate, cable cars were so full you couldn’t breathe. Views were gorgeous, though.

    I have requested my money back. Will never book with this company again. Horrible experience. When we reached out to customer service for Help, they did not offer help.

    A wonderful day spent in Chamonix, the guide and driver were lovely and very helpful and informative. The independent trip to Mount Blanc was breath taking, the information desks are very helpful If you need help. We also enjoyed the train ride up to the mountains, to then descend by cable car and then hundreds of steps to the ice caves. The caves were stunning I wish it was bigger but glad I did the trip.

    niels was the best guide!! he had so much information to share and is so passionate about the mountain! this man deserves a raise!!

    Our tour guide was very unprofessional and misguided us and wasted our time. We didn’t get to see everything we wanted to see cause of his lack of communication. When we told him what he did, he didn’t seem to care.

    This tour exceeded our expectations. My husband and I traveled with our 12 year old son from NY and was pleased with the service and comfort offered during the tour. Not only did we experience the excitement of the cable cars to Mont Blanc, the train to the glacier was amazing!Highly recommend!!

    Great experience with the bus ride there and then walking around the town and our guide Nels was awesome. Riding the cable car to the top of the mountain was amazing and the view. And then the train ride through the mountains afterwards and to the ice caves was wonderful. Great tour to take.

    Loved the ice box and the ice glacier What I did not like is the fact that I tried numerous times to get my 10 Percent discount on one of my tours! No one could help me. I booked many many tours, and felt upset that not ONE Got a discount!

    The trip was facilitated. We came in April but the it was snowing and it was a winter for us. The scenery was awesome and it is worth it. The only slight problem is that we thought the package we chose was to include lunch( whereas excluded). But that’s okay In overall, the trip was thrilled and I am happy to see the beautiful champnix

    My wife and I had the worst experience on the tour. First you inform that the activities in Chamonix such as Cable car and Mountain train are closed due to the maintenance. So I accept the option of tour "Glacier 3000". When we arrive the day of the tour they not have that in the system so we go to the Keytours office for change the itinerary. They give the Glacier 3000 option in the office but that option was stand by, because they where waiting for confirm the Glacier 3000 will open. After about 30 minutes, they say to us (24 group people) that the Glacier will open so we begin the tour exit to the Glacier. They never gave me nor did my wife give the printed tour guide in Spanish. There was no disinfectant hand gel available for travelers and staff. They never took people's temperatures or asked for evidence of vaccination. We arrive and the driver go to take the tickets for all the 24 peoples of the group, when we where climb to the Glacier, an employee of the Glacier 3000 say to us that the Restaurant, the view point, the Ice Express Chairlift, the fun park, glacier walk where closed (all where closed) so we only take the for go to the souvenirs store (so for nothing). The wheater was so bad that take the Peak Walk by Tissot was impossible only 4 of the 24 peoples of the group go up to that and no one can go to the final. After that parade for basically nothing (only for take a coffee on the Glacier with zero visibility). We exit on the bus to Montreux, and going down from Glacier 3000 the bus had an accident with the whole group inside (we were about to fall down the mountain and die). Unfortunately, there was a road accident as our bus skidded.  I would like to thank our driver who managed the situation well and thanks to his driving skills we all stayed alive. We were waiting for a new bus for around 4hrs and by the end of the day peoples were stressed and exhausted. We would like to ask the company for a full refund of the tour due to points below: - Health&Safety procedures were not followed well (example we haven't been asked to fasten seat belts, etc) - in my case I have the seat belts but nothing say to me to put that. Two person where hit during a road accident, and by the end of the day company hasn't asked to provide a medical check for him (my wife was one of these). - people heard that our driver was asked by company to carry on to drive , even he said that the bus needed to be checked first; - one the road accident's reasons could have been that the bus tires hadn't been changed to winter tires types that's why bus skidded. Forecast said it supposted to snow that day. - bad communication with our group, as the company Keytours didn't inform us about the next actions to be taken and how long it will take. Everything was unclear and people were unaware what was happening. - after around 4 hrs of waiting, we drove back to Montreux and supposed to stay there for one hour as the programme said. None from the company asked if we wanted to stay in Montreux. People were tired, some of them didn't have a proper meal at all before or after the accident, just a drink for me and my wife (2 Fanta china). Everyone wanted to go back to their hotels and just have a rest after a stressful situation. I would like to add that I have travelled with many tour companies and during such incidents everyone had a contingency plan. Yesterday was pure chaos. We were not well informed and the whole day was wasted because of delayed assistance.  It felt like the company didn’t care about our well being by making us wait in the cold in such a risk prone area and no body ask for medical support for the peoples that get hurt. We expected that we could be inquired about our injuries upon arrival. However, there was no one at the office. This has been the worst experience on any excursion and although a full refund does not make up for all the bad day that my wife and I had, mainly she who was injured and has marks on her body that we have photos of evidence. We ask for that full refund you should at least provide us with an additional option. This is unnaceptable.
