We travelled with Dartbus from Geneva to Val Thorens. The driver was great - he avoided the traffic and got us to the resort really efficiently. On the way back Dartbus recognised the risk of heavy snow and were in touch well in advance to bring our return forward to beat the snow and the traffic. Couldn't have asked for a better service, we'll definitely use Dartbus again.
Great service and friendly staff. Everything was smooth and easy. Can highly recommend.

At Geneva airport, Tom kept us well informed as to timings due to strikes etc. The driver did his best to avoid road congestion. A great service at a decent price. The return driver did a great job too.

Excellent service & communication. Appreciate Dave’s care and attention.No issues with the dartbus team.However, the way out wasn’t pleasant, driver was quite rude and wasn’t concerned for our well-being!The way back was exceptionally nice, the local driver was caring, polite and had a few shortcuts. Even a stop to stretch the legs.

This was a two way trip. Trip out was perfect. Trip back had some problems and we were picked up late. This was noticed promptly and managed by Dartbus (including frequent communications to us) which was good.

Great communication and updates from the team on the day of travel. My journey from Val Thoren to Geneva Airport was smooth and at a reasonable cost and I arrived early to the airport which I was worried about initially because I had an early 9am flight.
