Description

Experience a slice of French paradise when you visit the alpine resort of Chamonix and beautiful mediaeval town of Yvoire on this full-day tour. Journey into France and get intimate views of Mont Blanc before venturing through mediaeval castles and the Garden of Five Senses in Yvoire.

In the morning, meet your guide and hop into a coach to ride from Geneva into France. As you drive, admire the rolling alpine terrain that passes beside you, leading up into snowcapped peaks. Once you arrive in Chamonix, nestled quietly in the foothills of the Alps, admire the view of the breath-taking Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps. Spend your time exploring Chamonix's quaint shops and learning about the extreme sports that make it a popular winter destination, or opt to take a cable car up the mountain itself.

Drive next to Yvoire to explore a piece of mediaeval France. The town, which was built in the early 14th century, is recognised as one of the Most Beautiful Villages of France (Les Plus Beaux Villages de France). Step back in time as the 700-year-old Yvoire Castle and imposing stone fortifications that once defended the city. In the Garden of Five Senses, roam through a stunning labyrinth of flora to refresh every one of your senses. At the end of your tour, return to Geneva with a relaxing ferry trip across Lake Geneva, landing in the picturesque English Garden.

This combo city/village tour is not as described. Greatly disappointed. Tour is discribed as going from Chamonix to Yvoire, not cutting short stay in Chamonix to wait for coach to return to Geneva & then wait for a van/transport to go to Yvoire. Description indicates “your guide leads you through the 700-year-old Yvoire Castle;” no guide was provided & no entry to castle was provided nor was entry to Garden of Five Senses. We would have had pay an additional fee & by the time we found site there was no time. Chamonix & Yvoire are worthy of a visit, but false advertising misled us to believe we would have a guide to make the visit efficient. Van driver to Yvoire merely dropped us @ bus station. Map to Embarcadere was wrong! It showed it was to right of Chateau whereas it was quite a walk to the left - nearly missed ferry due to this discovery after waiting 15 minutes @ other port. Refund should be given & description made to match actual tour so an informed decision could be made.
