What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Seeing France, Switzerland, and Italy at the same time from a mountain top.

What did you think of your group leader?

Oliver was a great guide who had excellent knowledge of the history and culture of the region.  I was very safety conscious and did a good job arranging for evacuation of a member of our party who became ill at a mountain top.  His jokes received mixed reviews but overall he was great in setting a positive mood to the trip.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Trekking poles are essential.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The trip is rated B but should be rated B/C.  Several days had over 1000 meters of ascent or descent which was tough with the heat wave in Europe that week.
