  • wonderful trip! had an amazing 7-days trekking tour. splendid view, lot of snow patches in the last 3 days and totally a foodie tour! would highly recommend to anyone who loves nature and hiking! M. Zhang. Shanghai, CHINA.
  • This is an amazing experience. Astounding views, excellent organization and accommodations, good food, great company and excellent guide. For anyone looking for a challenging, beautiful, memorable vacation, this is an excellent choice. R. Diemar. Australia
  • The Tour du Mont Blanc was an amazing experience. We traversed through seven valleys and essentially hiked up and down six mountains with breathtaking views. The group size was good, and our guide, Elodie was a vibrant, informative and amazing person to spend a week with, and provided us with a wealth of knowledge, support and many laughs. T. Ohanessian. North Melbourne, VIC. Australia
  • We were really happy with the itinerary, the group leader and we were pretty lucky with the weather, so the views were spectacular. N. Brennan. Point Piper, NSW. Australia
  • The trip was amazing. Astounding views, excellent organization and accommodations, good food, great company and excellent guide. We were challenged, but rewarded with stunning landscape at every turn. For anyone looking for a challenging, beautiful, memorable vacation, this is an excellent choice. Truly an amazing experience. R. Diemer, UK
  • Absolutely a wonderful week, enjoyed pretty much every moment. Fabulous scenery goes without saying, but also met interesting fellow travellers from other parts of the world, enjoyed food and accommodation which surpassed expectations, topped off with a first rate guide (Nichole). I deliberately went early season to see snow on the tops and avoid high season numbers of fellow ramblers, but beware, mid June snow and ice can be a little challenging - although pretty much everyone in our group would testify it adds to the fun (you can slide down the mountains!). S. Hague, UK
  • I was looking at multiple sites to book for Mont Blanc hike but decided to go with UTrack, best decision ever. The hike was adventurous and the view spectacular. We had a good mix of young people with different background, all full of energy. The trip would not be the same if it wasn't for our guide Maxime. Had one of the best moments of my life. Will definitely deal with Utrack again in future. R. Chengappa. United Kingdom
  • Great experience. Trek had wonderful scenery, was well organised with a great guide named Vincent who looked after us for the whole 7 days. R. Mitchell. Leura, NSW, Australia
  • I booked this trek to escape the daily grind and it was exactly what I needed. Stunning scenery complimented by our attentive and friendly guide Maxime made for the best outdoor holiday I am likely to ever have! This trek is a must for anyone looking to explore the outdoors with like minded people. J. Liddell. Brisbane, QLD, Australia.
  • This hike was one of the most amazing travel experiences I've been lucky enough to be a part of. Our guide was exceptional, as was the food and the accommodation for the entire week! I was unsure if the quality of the hike would be high or not, considering its low cost, but it completely exceeded my expectations. Being in a group was a lot of fun and it was great meeting and getting to know people from all over the world. The only downside to doing this hike is that I'll have to wait to next season to do another...and if it weren't for the off-season I'd be on another right now! O. Trigger. Indooroopilly, QLD, Australia.
  • A very good week altogether, the food was excellent although the accommodation was mixed as it was end of season. Our most memorable moment was meeting like-minded fellow travellers, however I have to thank the guide and mule who were very good leaders. J. Campbell. Oban, UK
  • Great trip with a great group of people. Scenery was spectacular from day one. B. Smales. Mount Colliery, QLD. Australia
  • Our pre-trip information and liaison with the Sydney office was excellent and we felt really well supported. The trip itself (Tour du Mont Blanc) was brilliant and really good value for money. We would highly recommend Utracks and valued their professionalism and personal attention to detail and follow up. L. Hurst. Attadale, WA. Australia.
  • I did the mont blanc tour with utracks, it was my first trekking tour and I loved it. I totally recommend this company, very organized and delivered everything they promissed ! J. Macieira. Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
  • Beautiful scenery, lovely experience with the mule, things didn't always go to plan with the mule but it added to the enjoyment and amusement. I found the hike challenging but in saying that you need to go to heights to see such magnificent scenery. The second day was quite hard, but I felt great the next day to tackle the third day. Two excellent guides, Eric & Sandra, who both were very fit and good senses of humour and knowledge M. McNeil. Heatherton, VIC, Australia
  • This was a great walk. The scenery was incredible. We had a great group of people including some French speaking people. The walk is not easy. Each day there are some very steep elevations to walk. Preparation is essential. J. Woodyatt. Carindale, QLD. Australia
  • My Tour Mont Blanc was stunning. A year off sixty, this walk was a challenge in more than the physical sense. Stopping to pause at the beauty and wonder of the Alps gave me time to think. Our guide was sensitive to my needs. She was great fun to be with and an excellent leader..... planning to do the Dolomites Walk next year with UTracks. A. Wregg. Port Melbourne, VIC. Australia
  • Our holiday was excellent. The guide [Phillippe] was knowledgeable and great company. The food, accommodation, and communication with the guide were all good. M. Clune. Thornton, NSW Australia
  • The mule 'Titus' was entertaining. Certainly had a personality - "stubborn as a mule" at times. Very well handled by our guide Yves. Great group of 12 people. Guide was very easy going - fantastic for holiday spirit, highly skilled, safe and most informative. Thank you for an excellent holiday! We will travel again with UTracks and have encouraged our adult sons to do an active trip. L. Kelly & B. Margin. Daviston, NSW Australia
  • The whole trip was a wonderful experience - the guide, food, accommodation & fellow travellers. C. Lumb. NSW. Australia
  • The Mont Blanc Guided Walk was a wonderful experience with a much-experienced guide (Nicole) who, with great knowledge and humour, made sure that the group had the best possible experience. Whilst a challenging walk in some parts, everything was wonderfully organised to make sure that it wasnt struggle to take in the spectacular scenery. The meals, accommodation, 7kg luggage allowance, generous rest breaks and transfers back to Chamonix gave a great sense of luxury in a tour that represented excellent value for money. J. Maxwell. Sydney, NSW.
  • Trip were well organised with interesting itinerary, I will travel again with UTracks. N Jackson Watson, ACT
  • Great trip - really good group. A true European holiday, most participants were from Europe. This is the type of holiday the Europeans go on. Fantastic cultural experience. J Funnell Brighton, VIC
  • I had a wonderful trip! Great people, beautiful scenery and active adventure. J Weyler Varsity lakes, QLD
  • Every day the scenery just kept getting better. P Hastings The Gap, QLD
  • Very enjoyable, more than expected! G Dauncey Haberfield, NSW
  • All meals were excellent (we were surprised at how good!) Accommodation was very good at each stop. Our guide was highly experienced and had a vast knowledge of the track. He had an excellent sense of humor which helped the cohesiveness of the group, and made a point of interacting with everyone. G Buttel Albion Park, NSW
  • Could not praise the guide, food and accommodation enough. The guide went out of his way to make this a great holiday. Very considerate, safety conscious and good sense of humour. Right fitness essential. R.Osei WA, Australia
  • Excellent value. The included food was plentiful and quality. No need to spend any extra. I took this on as a challenge and it certainly was that, but it felt amazing to do it and I highly recommend it to others. V. Spitzer Carina Heights, QLD
  • Susan and I had a fabulous time. We were fortunate to have such an experienced guide who made sure everything was running smoothly. He went out of his way to accommodate specific requests from others. The accommodation far exceeded our expectations for this type of trip, so was a bonus. Thank you for providing such a fantastic trip. Elizabeth Grover. Nth Balwyn, VIC, Aust
  • Overall a good trip through wonderful country. 2nd day was difficult for most because it was very steep walking on steep slopes & the condition of the track. Dorms were basic would have been better paying extra for own room. I. Haase VIC. Australia
  • The attitude and competency of the leader was very good. Thank you for organising my attendance at such short notice. L. Collard NSW, Australia
  • Delightful Trek, very civilized not at all like bushwalking in Tasmania. Guide provided valuable info each day (environment, culture & history). M. Ling Tasmania, Australia
The historic Tour du Mont Blanc is easily one of the most spectacular walks of the world. Brimming with incredible vistas from high mountain passes, lush valleys and highway sized glaciers, alpine scenery does not get much better than this. Joining an international group led by a bilingual mountain guide, the emphasis is on full immersion into the sublime mountain culture, with overnights in cosy mountain refuges or charming village gtes. Carrying only a day pack, a mule carries your luggage leaving you free to enjoy the days walk. Commencing from the Chamonix Valley in France, the route takes you through Italy and Switzerland doing a horseshoe circuit around the Mont Blanc massif. There is plenty of time to enjoy the small villages along the way, including the delightful hamlet of Trient.
