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.
