Keith was an inspirational leader with excellent rapport with the group. He and was willing to share his considerable expertise - we all learned much about the mountains, trekking and safety and were inspired to explore further in the future.
I most enjoyed: The stunningly beautiful scenery, in particular on the way from Resy to Refugio Teodulo and on the Hohenweg, but every day had its special charms. The healthy exercise in crisp mountain air. The companionship of a like-minded group.

Keith and Judith Robson are excellent. Great leader, nice group and an excellent challenge. It certainly lived up to expectations.

The Guglielmina hut was a revelation. Wonderful food, amazing setting/views and great rooms. In general the mountain huts were clean, well maintained and had a good atmosphere, especially on the Itallian side. Lindsay was great. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. Without doubt the trip would not have been half as much fun without her. A wonderful trip, made all the better with a small, tight group and a great guide. Physically demanding and I am glad we prepared beforehand as it would have been very tough without it. Nothing to grumble about (apart from the cost of living in Switzerland!!) and would recommend to anyone with a good level of fitness and experience in the hills.

The trip was hard, but we prepared well for it, and had a thoroughly great time. There was only 4 of us and we had a great laugh, which made the trip even better. One to recommend to any one with a good degree of fitness looking for an adventure in the Alps.

Lindsey really went out of her way to make our trip as fun, and interesting as possible. she was outstanding though out the whole trip. You are very lucky to have such a great guide working for you.

Although I am a regular walker this was my first experience of a trek. I thought that Lyndsey was outstanding in all aspects, at all times, a real professional. She even organised the weather! Thank you Lyndsey.
The experience of being in the mountains. Plus whilst walking up hill the profussion of flowers were a beautiful distraction! The remoteness was rather special too.
All the accommodation was clean, and the hotels good. This was my first Hutting experience and I had feared the worst. However I enjoyed the experience all round.
