Full description
Discover the picturesque area of Les Diablerets (little devils) in the heart of the Alps Vaudoises at Col du Pillon. Made up of chalets, this village has an amazingly preserved heritage. Don't miss the majestic 3000–meter high glacier. Dominate the snowy peaks and take on the Peak Walk, the world's first suspension bridge connecting two peaks. At 108 meters long, discover more than 24 peaks over 4000 meters on the walkway. Take advantage of the fun park where sleds are waiting for you. In summer, try a descent in the Alpine Coaster, Europe's highest tracked toboggan run.  If you prefer to stay in the village of Diablerets, take a stroll along the river and explore the beautiful landscape. Around 3:00 PM, head back to the bus to return to Montreux, and enjoy some free time to explore this artistic city before returning to Geneva.

Our guide Tom was amazing. It was so beautiful in Montreaux where the tour took off from and the ride up the mountain was stunning. I highly recommend this tour to anyone! It was a lot of fun on top of the mountain as well with some unbelievable views. However, we couldn’t ride the alpine coaster (may 9th) because they were still clearing the tracks, I think it usually opens it late may. I just wish they made it more clear the bus takes off in Geneva and then meets in Montreaux. There are several large indications within this posting that made us believe the only departure point was in Montreaux so we trained from geneva to montreax which costed us $88 Canadian. Other than that it was absolutely amazing and I highly recommend.

Very well organized trip. The communication were made very well in advance which helped in planning the trip. Regular update through mail and what’s app assured the time of the trip. The trip started on time. The tour guide was an excellent person. He really took care of all of the person who we’re traveling with us. Regular updates by him on the places on the way with sufficient time to take pictures of breath taking views. Regular guidance on the tour helps us all have a wonderful experience without missing out any sight seeing spot.

We had Ed as our guide and he was super friendly and accommodating. Met up in the morning, got on the coach with only 7 of us in total, we picked up 2 people on the way via Lausanne where we could stop for 10 mins for a toilet break or take a quick photo. Another 1hr 10 mins to the bottom of the cable car up winding roads. Ed kept us together and informed of timing and itinerary etc.. We had about 2.5 hrs at the Glacier, so enough time to have a quick bite to eat, play on the slopes and walk the bridge. Views were amazing and Ed helped me take photos as being a single traveller you don't want selfies all the time! Met some really cool people on the tour and overall it was the highlight of my long weekend in Geneva. On the way back we stopped for an hour in Montreaux but shops were closed on a Sunday but beautiful small village with park and fab views. Got back at around 5pm. Only criticism is it could have been an hour or 2 longer but still loved the trip and worth going for sure.
