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.

We had an excellent time out with Gav, it was exactly what we needed. Gav really pushed us with the technical skills on day 1 and on the second day out which means we both feel much more confident about our ascent up SK.
We both had such a super time and Gav was brilliant.
Thank you again.
All the best, Megs & John

Just a quick thank you for organising the last couple of days. I have had a great time with Gav, who has been excellent, in not only guiding the days but in providing advice, instruction and inspiration for future trips.
I am already looking forward to my next Alps trip!
Kind regards

Thanks for the experience, Tim and Thor were absolutely fabulous. It was definitely a much more enjoyable experience than my first trip up, must have been the great company…. For some reason I am a bit jaded this week.

I would just like to concur what John has said and express my thanks to Tim and Thor for making the trip a fantastic experience. When the planets align in the solar system and the wife grants it, I would really like to attempt to climb the Matterhorn!

It was a great week! Huge thanks for Jonny for his amazing guiding during the week. I not only learnt a ton of new information through his expert instruction, but received a ton of great suggestions for other places to explore and build on going forward from the course. Plus, he was a brilliant leader making each day fun and enjoyable as well, and catered wonderfully to each member of our group’s skill sets and what we wanted to get out of the course. I’m stoked to build on what I learned during the week. Thanks Jonny!
