American in Chamonix

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The Aiguilette des posettes, was my favorite day. A steady climb with views that you could hardly believe would get better the higher you got. Also, the day we hiked in Italy was amazing. The Refugio Bonatti is a place i would love to return to. Incredible wild flowers all through the mountains.

What did you think of your group leader?

Simon was a wonderful leader. He kept us on route, made adjustments for the group and for weather if needed. I enjoyed that he kept things silly and light, but never compromising the task at hand of safely arriving back at the Chalet for our next delicious meal.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

I was a single american woman traveling alone, and this was a very comfortable and wonderful way to see more than I ever would have on my own. Don't overthink it...if you enjoy hiking just book it...it will be joyful.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

John and Jayne, were amazing hosts. They were so kind and caring and a pleasure to spend time with. I was blown away by the quality of the food, each meal was delicious. The afternoon tea and deserts were such a treat. They took wonderful care of us and the Chalet.
