Excellent Chamonix Walking holiday
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Amazing walking with a constant back drop of the Mont Blanc massif.
What did you think of your group leader?
Fantastic leader who was knowledgeable, friendly, sociable (always ready for a beer and chat at the end of each walk and joined us for dinner and a drink in the evening), made the group feel safe on the mountains paying particular attention to people who felt uneasy on uneven and steep ground. Some members of the group were difficult to manage and didn't seem to understand that group safety was the guides priority, and even in this difficult situation the guide was professional and attentive to everyones needs. I always felt safe and well looked after on the mountains.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
There is some steep climbs at moderate altitude but the guides ensure that you can take your time and you never feel pressured to keep up with the group. So walk at your own pace, stop regularly to enjoy the views and you will get up and down the hills with out difficulty. This is a great taster trip if you haven't done anything like this before put are thinking of doing a trekking holiday in the future.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
A very well organised trip with all the best bits of the tour of Mont Blanc with the luxury of a chalet with hot tub to come back to every night. With Chamonix a few minutes walk from the chalet you have the convenience of bars, coffee shops (with great cakes) restaurants and shops close by. Overall a great trip which has everything you could ever need for a great weeks walking. The chalet is amazing with great views, great chalet hosts, with excellent food (and plenty of it), plenty of space to socialise, a garden, balcony and hot tub. Everything you need at the end of a great day in the mountains.
