Here at UTracks we always love receiving feedback from travellers who have been on our trips around Europe. Philip wrote to us the other day with his personal Mont Blanc review and below we want to share this with you. He travelled on the Mont Blanc Rambler in July 2019 to celebrate his 70th birthday together with his son. Congratulations again, Philip!
Our guide made sure that we were walking at a comfortable pace


"The trip was absolutely well above expectation in every respect-fabulous. The walking was fine and our guide was good at setting the pace. The ascents were strenuous, but completely in line with what I expected from the pre-tour information. 

I would certainly advise anyone doing this trip to prepare by following a fitness programme and doing some hill or mountain walking in the weeks leading up to departure. 

Our guide, Christophe was excellent in every respect-very friendly, along the way making sure we knew what we were looking at, pointing out and explaining about many of the alpine flowers, sharing the route with us on maps, settling us in to our accommodation, pacing the route to accommodate everyone. 

The accommodation was above expectation. Obviously we knew we would largely be staying in refuges and huts, but it was certainly less basic than I had thought it might be and we were well looked after. 

The scenery was of course stunning. We were lucky in one sense in that we couldn’t have asked for a better group on the trip-we all got on really well. So in short a fantastic trip and no complaints at all. I should add that the support from your UK office from booking the trip on was really excellent".
