Private trip to enjoy a full day excursion to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc and Montreux. An optional ride on the Aiguille du Midi cable car for unbelievable views. Later, an experience of the elegant town of Montreux and a visit the historic Castle Chillon.
Begin the delightful private journey from any convenient location for you in Geneva. Sit back and be rewarded by the impressive views of Swiss countryside, while you cross the border to France through the Arve Valley along with the River Arve. Enjoy the spectacular scenery as you arrive at the remarkable Chamonix-Mont-Blanc – a well-known ski and holiday resort, with the first Winter Olympics held in 1924. In Chamonix you will have leisure time for exploring the town, gazing at the neighboring mountains and glaciers lifting up to Mont Blanc. If you wish, you can take the highest cable car in Europe – Aiguille du Midi, and reach the kingdom of eternal snow, which will unravel a crystalline view over Mont Blanc cradled by the French, Swiss and Italian Alps. After returning back to Chamonix, the trip will proceed with the journey to Montreux, which is firmly squeezed between Lac Leman (Lake Geneva), vineyards of Lavaux and the Alps in the French-speaking region of Switzerland. Besides gazing at the panoramic views down on Lake Leman, one can also find souvenir shops, boutique stores and traditional restaurants selling local food. One of the sights is the 3 meter Memorial of the worldwide popular singer and front man of the rock band Queen - Freddie Mercury. The main landmark of Montreux, however, is the medieval Castle Chillon - built in the 11th century, located right on the rocky island of the Lake. We always strive to arrange the trip as per your preferences and interests, suggesting a personal approach. Overall, your private trip will end with a comfortable return to the initial meeting point in Geneva.
