At more than 3842 meters, be impressed by the Majestic Mont-Blanc and all the peaks around you. If you are feeling adventurous, take a breathtaking step into the void. Three glass walls, the glass floor, and glass ceiling panels give you a unique experience enhanced by 1000 meters of free air directly under your feet, in total safety!

Everything went as planned, got on the bus around half 8, the guide was friendly, everything was made clear for the plan of the day. We got the cable car about half 10, it wasn’t an incredibly clear day but it was still amazing and definitely worth it above the clouds. We went onto the train to the glacier and ice caves then at 13:10 so it filled the day well and we definitely enjoyed it and thought it’s something to not miss out on

This a must do day trip if you're in Geneva for a few days. Stunning views and a great experience awaits. I recommend that you check the weather before leaving, we were lucky enough to enjoy a nice, sunny day. I can imagine it being half the experience if visibility is poor...

brilliant day, the guide was really friendly and knowledgeable, we can't speak highly enough of him. couldn't go on the train due to the ongoing French strikes but the guide offered us a partial refund or a different activity. we took the alternate activity and this was fantastic. I terms of the visit and cable carts, just brilliant, beautiful town and scenery, what an experience! would recommend!
