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.
