What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
This is a joint review & for me it is impossible to pick one inspirational moment - the whole trip truly was an inspiration. For my husband it was the culmination of the 1500m (4500 feet) ascent from Les Bossons to Brevent (like Where Eagles Dare!).
What did you think of your group leader?
Jeff was an outstanding leader. He clearly has a passion for everything outdoors. He not only guided but also fully informed you at every opportunity as to the flora, fauna and wildlife - his background in biology came through in the knowledge he was able to impart. He also managed the groups various skill and fitness abilities in a very delicate manner where everyone was made to feel that they had achieved. He was sociable outside of guiding and had a great sense of humour.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
If you are of a good level of fitness then this trip will require some effort from you but you will be able to enjoy it to the full. If you fail to prepare then you are preparing to make life very difficult for yourself and you won't get the full benefit of enjoying this amazing trip. Make sure you have good kit to equip you for rain or sunshine. There are washing machines and tumble driers at most of the camp sites so no need to over pack. Be prepared to muck in at mealtimes with preparing/packing away the dining area.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Following on from the specific comments about our guide Jeff, he was truly, well and worthily supported by Andy. He really ran an excellent camp, prepared excellent meals and went that extra mile to ensure that we were well and truly catered and accommodated for. It was clear he put in the extra effort to ensure each and every camp was special. In addition, I celebrated my birthday whilst we were away and he made extra arrangements to make it a memorable day.
