What Our Guests Say
This was my forth trip with Rob and third time taking a group of school pupils with HMG. Each time, we tweek and improve the schedule and this year was no exception. With Rob’s eye for detail and thorough planning, the 12 pupils aged 14-18 all had a truly amazing experience including the Aiguille Tour,; harder routes on the Tete Blanche; Marbree ridge; Entreves traverse ; topping off the trip in the Cosmique Hut and routes on the Pt Lachenal; Cosmique Arete & Arete Laurence. A smashing 9 days with some great rock climbing at Les Contamines. I thoroughly recommend Rob for planning and guiding your adventure, whether it’s a gnarly North face or gentle glacier traverse. The guides that he employs are all first class professional mountaineers who interact well on a personal level too.

Steve was great; knew what he was doing, was patient and supportive, and great company. All in all it was a truly memorable couple of days. As ever, the professionalism of you and your company make you my only choice when it comes to guiding. I’ve recommended you to other friends who have also used you/your guides and say the same thing.
Thanks again for a great experience and look forward to having another adventure with you again soon.
