Peter Minnikin, Ski Touring Chamonix Private Guiding, April 2019

Thank you for an amazing few days touring!  Your guidance, patience and words of wisdom were very much appreciated. The route choices were pitched to perfection being both challenging but achievable. It has certainly, as I hoped opened by eyes to the world of ski touring/mountaineering.  Thank you both again for a fantastic few days, I am already thinking about next year..

Rasmus Sorensen, Climb Gran Paradiso Private Guiding July 2014

Thank you very much:)
Yes, it was nice that it all worked out on the summit:)
I will see to the feedback via the website once we are home from the holiday:)
But one thing I can say now is that we were really happy with Hannah as our guide! She was very competent and pleasant to be around:)

Peter Abrhamson, Climb Mont Blanc Course, June 2014

Thanks for organising a great 6 days in the mountains!

 Brilliant guides (I don’t know how Hannah put up with us!) and a great itinery, the Tete rouse/Gouter combination proved to be perfect!

 So pleased we all managed to summit MB, (even with my blisters – I had to hire different boots!) such an improvement over last years guiding.

 All in all a great week, please feel free to use this as a testimonial (or any parts thereof) and we will be in touch in the future about next years plans…
