My daughter (17), son (16) and I (53) had a brilliant time over four demanding days of hiking along parts of the TMB, led by our excellent guide Dave. He extended the routes to give us the best possible experience, matched to our fitness and ability. The accommodation in Refuges was great throughout and my teenagers particularly loved Happy Tracks\' Refuge Le Peuty in Trient. Anja and Raphy made us welcome and it had a lovely atmosphere. If you are fit enough, its hard to beat this trip.

Superbe randonnée au lac de Fenestre. Le guide Fabrice connaît vraiment bien son sujet, le parc du Mercantour, qu’il commente bien, et la randonnée en général. Il su très bien s’adapter à mon niveau (très moyen). Je recommande vivement !
