A fabulous holiday. Excellent guides and superb weather. The guides were professional, supportive and extremely helpful. I owe my reaching the summit to Bernard. He was so patient with me when I couldn't find the energy to carry on. The holiday exceeded expectations indeed. A fantastic holiday highly recommended.
Massive disappoint is the best way to sum up this trip. In selecting Exodus ahead of other companies I thought I’d made a wise choice, little did I realise what awaited me in Chamonix! Put simply there was a woeful lack of organisation. The worst example of this was the failure to secure places in the Gouter refuge ahead of the group’s summit attempt. I consider myself to be pretty fit but to do Gouter route without being able to stop at the Gouter refuge was beyond me. What made me very annoyed is that like everyone else in the group I’d booked the trip months in advance thereby granting ample time to secure the necessary accommodation.
My Mont Blanc Trip was an excellent mountaineering experience. The skills that we learned on the training climb, through to the experience of climbing Mont Blanc du Tacul (Mont Blanc was outwith our reach owing to rockfall) were simply amazing.
An amazing if challenging experience. A fun group, a brilliant guide and fantastic weather all week meant, luckily for us, the summit was on offer and we took it. Standing on the roof of Western Europe looking down on three countries made all the effort worthwile. The three day aclimatization at the start of the trip was perfect to learn the skills needed for Mt Blanc and to cope well with the altitude.
A rewarding, fun and successful adventure. When we stood atop Mt Blanc, with the whole of France below us (and what seemed like the whole of Europe) I was truly proud.
A certain toughness and fitness is required, but as I am 47 years old and my walking partner was in her 20's it shows anyone can achieve this, if reasonably fit.
What an amazing trip, well organised from the moment I left the UK and such an experience to reach the top of Mont Blanc, will definately be using Exodus again but the only thing is which trip do I choose next? Decisions decisions.....
