    Overall it was excellent because of the spectacular scenery and our fabulous guide Max. We also stayed in good places and Max made us great meals. Unfortunately the rest of our group only spoke French so the experience was diminished because of this.... Show more

    The tour route is good but there is room for improvement for accommodation and food arrangements, particularly the breakfast.

    The choice of accommodation was good. Our group always stayed in the same sleeping quarters and did not mix with the other groups; this arrangement felt more secure due to Covid-19 restrictions. Fred our French guide did an outstanding job in trying to... Show more

    Sebastien was a fantastic guide with a quiet dry sense of humour. I loved his relationship with our mule who was well cared for. All the hikers carried part of the lunchtime picnic in our rucksacks to share together. The food was wholesome and I... Show more

    A good tour through pretty scenery, but a bit disappointing compared to the spectacular mountains in the Dolomites
    UTracks commented on this review
    Hi Alan, Thanks for your review. I actually did this tour last week instead of the Dolomites. I was blown away the how stunning the Alps are. The tour is great fun and a good challenge. Glad that I still have the Dolomites to explore!

    Excellent tour that was supplemented by a varied group of hikers who got on well. Great option if you only have a week as it doesn't do the full route. A couple of bus legs.
