What people are saying about Matteo


3 days for beginners, 2 days for more experimented .. and depending on the logging, difficulty increases ... should be more visible .. Booking was made personally but not by the organization team Pros: - Andreas’s skill as a guide, impressive - knowledge of the mountain - calm and patience Cons : - preparation required from Tete Rousse vs Goûter .. better information needed - extra costs related to the summit .. food, lift, trains , ....



We were very satisfied with the whole experience. Our guide Matteo was very experienced and taught us a lot during the short trip. He looked after us and made sure that we felt secure even on the most dangerous stages of the ascent and descent. I cannot express enough how happy we were with Matteo's support and guidance. He was very professional during the whole trip and also very jovial and kept us a good company. His knowledge of the mountains and mountaineering is exceptional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone wishing to climb in the Alps.



We were a bit unlucky with the weather, so we didn't summit. But given the conditions, I think we did the best we could, we've scaled some smaller peaks and practiced our spline skills. Matteo is great guide, highly recommend.
