What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The views of the snow-capped peaks and rocky outcrops, sometimes glimpsed through trees, the beautiful natural rock gardens and flower meadows, and the walks up the river gorges.

What did you think of your group leader?

Ruedi was excellent, especially at dealing with a group of very mixed abilities, so that no-one felt they were being held back or pushed too hard.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

As long as you are prepared for a hotel in the rustic style - which is made plain in the Trip Notes - you will enjoy it. If you expect a modern hotel with a TV in every room and a bar, you will be disappointed. We enjoyed our stay and the food was wholesome and delicious. (There is a bar nearby in the village.)

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Exodus support after booking was excellent. We were warned in good time of an air fare hike and offered alternative dates, which saved us several hundred pounds.
