What People Say about Peaks Hunter Mountain Guide Team


Elis was fantastic!
Dan George for Matterhorn 2 Day Guided Climb From Switzerland
Peaks Hunters were brilliant from the point of first contact.  They took care of every last detail from planning the
trip to providing all the mountaineering equipment.  On the mountain our guides were amazing.  Positive, confident, good company and with safety always at the fore front.  They set the pace and made sure as many of our group as possible hit the summit.  Thank you so much to the Silvia, Elis and the team.  Will definitely be using you again
Gavin for Gran Paradiso 2 Day Guided Ascent
The trip was excellent. We met the owner of Peak Hunters and next time would preferably like to travel with
him. You all saved us and our trip and we are forever in your debt. We are already excited to book next years with you guys.
Sheena and Chris for Gran Paradiso 2 Day Guided Ascent
The trip was great, the guide the programme the team everything. Except for 1 thing: the clothes recommended in the
list of equipment was too hot for that season i felt like.
Max for Gran Paradiso 2 Day Guided Ascent
We had a great trip and it was an epic challenge but we only made it to 4400metres which is
400metres from the summit when we had to turn around as I became sick with altitude and needed to get down safely. So had to abandon our summit attempt. Gigio was a super guide and looked after us very well and got me as far as I could go but in the end the best decision was to come back down to a safe altitude and feel good again We had an amazing trip and are not deterred from possibly trying it again someday but will look to acclimatise for longer next time Thanks for organising our fantastic guide and tell him a big thank you from us 
Anne for Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route
Our trip  was wonderful!Everything was as planned. Our guide  Gigio was very professional, very friendly, spoke  good English and easily
adjusted hike to the abilities of two aging mountain  enthusiasts with 10 years old granddaughter. Hike itself was in exceptionally beautiful terrain, easily  accessible due to Skyway cable car.This hike definitely was the highlight of our vacation and we all will remember it for many years  to come.Thanks to all who helped  to organize this hike and especially  to our guide  Gigio!
Boris for Glacier du Géant guided traverse
I had a great adventure to climb Mont Blanc and summit successful. The two guide are very nice, friendly and
helpful, I really appreciate them. They always keep the safely first, well done. The experience is very good, from safety, service and Mountain View. I will introduce my friends to come here.Thank you very much!
Dave for Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route
The whole experience of the Mont Blanc climb was awesome. I was really lucky to have Claudio Bastrentaz from Peaks
Hunter Mountain Guide Team as a guide. He is very professional and a great guy to be with on the mountain. We made it to the summit before sunrise and the views were spectacular. It will be a memory for life.
Jonny Höglund for Matterhorn 2 Day Guided Climb From Switzerland
Jacobo was a great guide ! Not only he has a lot of experience in mountain sports but also was
very nice and thoughtful with us. I would definitely recommend this activity!
Sebita for Glacier du Géant guided traverse
The best trips I have ever taken! Andrea was a fantastic guide, very friendly and made me feel extremely safe
at all times. I came in with no prior experience and he taught me everything i needed to know for the trip and went at my pace. The trip was well organised and ran smoothly. Would 100% recommend.
Rachel von Maydell for Climbing Mont Blanc in 5 days
Eli’s was the best! Peak Hunter Guides was great. Elis showed some of the best guiding expertise I’ve ever seen.
Thanks to Explore Share.
Dan George for Matterhorn 2 Day Guided Climb From Switzerland
Gigio was careful, sober and supportive, Silvia outstanding in cooperativeness, problem solving and persistance. However, a little less cost effective
as compared to other teams.

Everything was perfect. Giovanni is a fantastic guide who took care of me. Moreover, the weather was fine. Great souvenir !
Thanks a lot !

Ciao, John
for Breithorn, Pennine Alps, Guided Ascent
Claudio & Jacopo are vastly experienced and clearly respected guides that did everything they could to make our trip a
success. I highly recommend them both to anyone thinking of booking a trip such as this. They tailored our trip to match our groups ability whilst always maintaining a focus on our objective. I cannot recommend them enough.Fearghal
Fearghal Duffy for Climbing Mont Blanc in 5 days
The guide himself was really nice, as was the Hut. No wifi or cell service there for those who need
that ?. We did not take the summit because of worsening weather conditions. So we shall be back later this year for another attempt. Really nothing one can do about the weather anyways...
for Gran Paradiso 2 Day Guided Ascent
We had an incredible day climbing Breithorn with Jacopo today! Despite mediocre weather conditions Jacopo ensured a safe and enjoyable
hike for all of us.Great communication, attitude and professionalism. Highly recommended!
Markus Nilsen for 1-day Breithorn ascent from Cervinia, Italy
We had a mountaineering trip with Jacopo on the Monte Rosa Massif. It was a great! Our guide is very
knowledgeable and we learnt so much from him. He is also quite responsible and trustable, he made everything well-organized and plan the trip according to the weather condition. We will definitely rate this a 5-star trip with Peakshunter mountain guides.
