What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The combination of great walking, good weather, a fabulous group and the best Exodus leader I have had in 9 trips made this a really wonderful holiday. Walking in the snowfields up at the tops of the cols was a new experience for me and the level of exertion was enough to be a challenge without being excessively difficult!

What did you think of your group leader?

Rupert, our leader, was an absolute gentleman and could not have done more to look after the group. He was always attentive, thoughtful and considerate about everyone's different needs; good-humoured and kind. The fact that he was also a botanist was the icing on the cake for me.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

This is a great trip for getting a good feel for the Mont Blanc area; has lovely variety in 3 countries and varying landscapes en route, and the three rest(!) days provide opportunity to explore Mont Blanc from other angles including taking the dramatic cable car up the Aiguille du Midi (the neighbouring mountain) and paragliding around the Chamonix valley. Pack it all in!!
