What Our Guests Say
Rob has been instrumental in getting me into mountaineering. First through the courses organized in Wales, and then through his organization in the Alps. We recently did a weekend together in Chamonix and it was as good as it gets. He is experienced, energetic and a fantastic mentor. Don’t think you will find better.

“Me and my wife had the pleasure to do the classic Arête des Cosmiques on Oct 17th with Rob. From the first touchpoint via email and through the entire planning and the tour itself, Rob was as professional, friendly, patient and supportive as you would expect from a great guide. Next time on tour around Chamonix, there‘s no doubt about which guide we‘ll contact.
Thanks Rob for that great day up there! And also for the nice pictures!” Regards, Tom & Olga
