A fantastic holiday in a great unspoilt region with a good route. The days were demanding but rewarding. Loved the place and the views and liked going to the summits, particularly the Pain de Sucre. The holiday was made more enjoyable by a great group and an excellent leader.
Mylene was a fantastic leader. Always smiling, integrating well into the group and great company. Professional and inspiring confidence, patient with the slower and less confident members of the group, but managing the pace well. She lead effortlessly and we all followed without even thinking.

Mylene Widmann, trip leader, could not have been better. She was helpful, patient, attentive, professional and unflappable. She is both a skilled mountaineer and a skilled group leader. She was the best group leader we have ever travelled with and we will happily recommend her for 'group leader of the year'.
Most enjoyed: Exercise, challenge, stunning scenery and food and excellent leadership.

Antoine really made the trip for me. It was great he was a French leader and we did not come across any other British tourists the whole week! Stunning views and wonderful scenery.

Excellent - exactly what I was after. Tough and interesting walking; some scrambling up to peaks, good number of peaks. Mylene was a fantastic leader. Competent, calm, relaxed and extremely knowledgeable.
