Just hop on and enjoy the scenic views. Good way to get some nice photos, but be mindful of the time of trains as you'd have to wait for around 30 mins to get the return train.

Mont blanc express train is a great way to get around, and explore the local areas. Chamois to St Gervais ,is a lovely journey, great views of mountains and valleys. Local park is St Gervais a nice place to walk and relax.

Travelled from St-Gervais to Chamonix. Has been quite an experience with the gradients this train has to climb. Some lovely mountain views also, however, the scenery fades in comparison with what can be seen on Rhatische Bahn or Bernina Express.

Whilst the scenery and journey are nice, our experience was rather ruined by stupid ticketing rules. As a lodger in the Chamonix Valley we had a card that stated that there is free use of the train between Servoz and Vallorcine. What it does not...More
