Hut-to-hut ‘Vues du Mont Blanc’ Trekking Tour

Ben was a great guide. I appreciated how straight forward he was, no sugar coating things. We really had a great time. Discussion of how what the hike really is (Tour des Muveran) and the level of difficulty required should be explained in the tour synopsis. As it is, I don’t think most people on the tour were ready for that level.

4-day Hiking and Wine Tasting Tour around Lake Geneva, Switzerland

We had a weeklong tour with Matthew in 2017 and of all the trips we have made, hiking and otherwise, this was the best. Matthew found beautiful and varied types of hikes for each day, and the restaurants and vineyards he found were superb. His knowledge of the wine and geography is deep and he has a wonderful sense of humor. The trip was a joy from beginning to end.
