Mont Blanc Highlights

The best holiday ever!

5
This was the best holiday of my life so far and that says a lot as I am a frequent traveller who visited approximately 20 European countries, many beautiful places and had several fantastic holiday experiences. But this holiday trumped all of that. For those who are not sure if this is the trip for you, trust me it is worth every penny. I am absolutely satisfied with how Exodus dealt with all of my questions and how they organised this trip. It was all very simple. I arrived to Geneva early Saturday afternoon and met with everyone at the airport included our tour guide. The journey to Chamonix took one hour. Chamonix town is like no others. The town it self is very beautiful and is surrounded by even more beautiful mountains. The views were absolutely unbelievable. We were accommodated in a Chalet which was very beautiful. In the Chalet we met with the rest of the group, and I have to say I couldn't ask for a better group. Everyone (including our guide - Jenny Smith and the two hosts - Rich and Sarah) was nice and friendly and made this experience even better. The weather was very good, except for one day when it was raining, so we had all the fantastic views. Every day was absolutely fantastic, so get in shape so you don't miss a thing. No words can describe just how beautiful the views were. The trails them self were in good conditions and I felt very safe on them. Yes there were some difficult sections, but our guide has always helped us out. The best thing about the trip is that when you think nothing can out do your day/moment/view there is something even better, and better and better... You will truly see the best parts of the Alps, experience a new culture, taste things you never ate before. You really want to have a hot chocolate in Italy. The hosts Rich and Sarah were wonderful and I am thankful that they were out hosts as they were friendly and funny and always lifted the atmosphere. Not to mention the fantastic food, truly it was world class, and I miss it already.

Alpine Hiking Adventure

We can't recommend this trip highly enough! The hikes were incredible--challenging, beautiful, varied, and expertly-guided. There were plenty of stops at local refuges for hot chocolate, coffee, and water bottle refills along the way. Our guide (Mark) was quite knowledgeable about the area, and our hosts (Rich and Sarah) were absolutely lovely. Sarah's cooking was OUTSTANDING--a true highlight! Finally, we enjoyed terrific camaraderie and great conversations with the other members of our group.

Mont Blanc Highlights

An absolute dream of a trip

I can't recommend Mont Blanc Highlights enough. I had never been on an organised activity holiday before, so I was a bit apprehensive about what it might involve. Also, I think it felt like a lot of money to be spending on a holiday (well, to be anyway). I think in light of the experience I had, I would've paid more for it. It was wonderful. The standard of everything was so high, my expectations were surpassed at every stage. The walking was glorious, and pitched exactly right for my fitness. We all loved our leader and our hosts. The food was out of this world. And the views... oh my. Italy day was my fave. But there wasn't a single day that I didn't enjoy. Even though this is an activity holiday, it was such a relaxing holiday: all you can concentrate on is putting one food in front of the other, which is incredible therapeutic.

In July I walked the Mont Blanc Highlights tour. For anyone short of time or concerned about doing the full circuit this a great tour. You get to see the best of the best and are based on Chamonix. I think it is great to come back to the same base each night . We had a delightful chalet right in Chamonix town, with the excellent hosts and chefs. Sarah and Rich looked after us, cooked a delicious three course meal every evening, baked wonderful afternon tea each day on our return and took us to the beginning of your walk daily. I can't talk highly enough of the general organisation, Sarah and Rich and the professionalism and knowledge of our guides, Rupert and Jen. I highly recommend Exodus Travels and will use them again.

This was an excellent trip to do. I do have a pretty good fitness level but have not done a huge amount of hiking, however although I did find it challenging it was enormously rewarding and I can't say strongly enough how fantastic the views are!
