What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Took a short but steep detour to a quiet peak with a 360 degree view of Mont Blanc and surrounding mountains with clear blue skies and no one but a pipe smoking Italian who was striking a pose to share it with.

What did you think of your group leader?

Our group leader was perfect for the task. He dealt with a range of abilities and experience and ensured everyone had the holiday they wanted and more.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Be fit and comfortable with ascents and descents. Take an umbrella as it's infinitely better than putting waterproofs on in a short shower. Take an inflatable pillow as clothes in a bag can get a bit much after 2 weeks.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Take a bottle of something from duty free for an impromptu cocktail party under a glacier with your new travelling companions!
