September week in Chamonix

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Hiking day in Italy - warm sun, the best hot chocolate, beautiful scenery.

What did you think of your group leader?

He know the mountains well, and could tell interesting stories. I felt a little RUSHED at times:once we had made it up the mountains, I would have liked to take time walking down in the beautiful scenery, enjoy the moment more - not going as fast as possible.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

It does require you to be fit - I think it is more strenuous than the categorization suggests. You need to be able to climb (not just walk) for 2-3 hours, then lunch, then walking down, which may be hard on your knees. Poles recommended!!! for late September you might need rain gear, but it is nice and quiet in the mountain, so I highly recommend going at that time.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I can recommend Exodus!
