    An excellent trip in an area I'd never visited before.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The views of Mont Blanc and associated mountains on the last day. It was clear, the sky was blue - you couldn't help but keep stopping to admire the viewWhat did you think of your group leader?Nick was a great bloke who was a very relaxed leader but willing (and able) to exercise control when necessary.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Pack light and then remove half of what you've packed - honestly you don't really need that much for what is 4 nights away. You'll appreciate it going up those passes.

    A wonderful week! Great walking, though quite hard work with a pack. You certainly need to be reasonably fit. Fabulous mountain scenery and every day different. The September sunshine added to the beauty. We were part of a lovely,varied group of people and had an excellent guide. We are already planning our next trip into the mountains!What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The Col de Ferret: beautiful weather, a lovely day's walk and incredible views.What did you think of your group leader?Nick was superb. A light touch from someone with a great deal of experience and knowledge.  Do you have any advice for potential travellers?You need to be quite fit to walk for 7 hours a day up and down mountains carrying your pack.make the pack as light as possible. Nowhere really to do washing. Washed hair once in hotel, but not in dormitory accommodation so no need to carry shampoo along.  Showers were sometimes busy so needed to queue and occasionally cold!Is there anything else you would like to add?It was a really superb week and I would highly recommend the walk.

    An excellent alpine walking holiday - lived up to all my expectations.  Fantastic scenery, wild flowers, characterful accomodation and excellently led.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Being able to see so many alpine flowers in mid July - this was because the snow had stayed later this year - and having a leader who was as interested in identifyingand talking about wild flowers as I am!The baked apple stuffed with nuts and fruit, heated up in an aga at one of the refuges. Walking across snow bridges over glacial streams and seeing glaciers close up. Rupert's homemade dice game with the wooden dice he made - played on a pavement while waiting for the bus!What did you think of your group leader?Rupert was excellent in leading us all, excellent knowledge of alpine wild flowers, very relaxed approach, made sure everyone was OK in the group all of the timen.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Long walking days with over 1000 metres of ascent and descent most days are wonderful - but good to be reasonably fit before you come to get the most out of the trip.Think minimal when packing your rucsac - pack as little as you need - then rethink and pack less!Walking poles are really useful for both the descents and for crossing snow patches.Don't worry about the dormitory sleeping - its fun!Is there anything else you would like to add?As a vegetarian I thought I might have a very boring diet - but no, the trip is fine for vegetarians - I really enjoyed the food.I enjoyed every minute!
