MONT BLANC HIGHLIGHTS

5
A thoroughly enjoyable and well organised week. Oliver and Elaine are excellent hosts, the Chalet Savoy is a comfortable and homely base for the trip with amazing views, and the food is excellent. The five treks are all different, varied and well planned. All in all, this is a fantastic trip to see the best of the Mont Blanc area.

Oliver, the leader, was unenthusiastic, like an office clerk doing the same job for years. He was difficult to understand, sometimes snappy but foremost, I felt like on a school trip when a teacher would scold you for anything. It was obvious he had some bad experience in the mountains, because even when you tried to keep walking, tired of stopping all the time, and stayed ahead of the group, he panicked and would brag about safety in the mountains for hours &days! Food was quite basic, we all craved for veg and fruits and had to stock up ourselves with those things. Last but not least, it didn't feel like grade B+, there were too many stops, you couldn't get into the rhythm of walking because of the guide stopping with his dog every 5 minutes! That was quite annoying as we didn't pay for a stroll with a dog in the park.

Exodus Response

Oliver has been an Exodus leader for many years and his knowledge and experience are of the highest level. He regularly scores very highly in our client feedback survey and as can been seen from other comments on this review page, clients have been extremely happy with him and the trip as a whole. Oliver also leads winter itineraries for us and you will be able to see many 4 and 5 star reviews on these also: Trip codes CEB, CEC and CYC. For any leader client safety on the trip is essential and this means ensuring the group do not become too spread out on a walk. This can be more tricky to manage in a group with varying abilities but all our leaders are experienced at managing this situation to ensure that the group are happy and enjoy the trekking pace. Please note that this itinerary is Grade B and not B+ and the itinerary has been set to reflect this. Elaine, Oliver’s wife prepares a delicious menu throughout the week and again you will see from previous reviews that this is well received. With each evening meal there are normally 3 different vegetables served and breakfast and lunch usually include fruit. Dylan their Fox Terrier does accompany some of the walks and has proved a popular addition. He is extremely friendly and loves having his photo taken!

A great week. Weather not perfect but Oliver varied the programme to fit. The group  of 15 had 4  'couples' and 7 singles but all laughed together at Olivers stream of jokes and stories and shared the pleasures of walking in a great area. Elanine kept us well fed and the chalet was cosy with hot tub, sauna, sky and ping pong, as well  as goats and a donkey just outside.

Great trip, hospitality by Oliver and Elaine was fantastic. Walks were brilliant with great views (when it stopped raining) and would like to go back and do the whole tour of mont blanc. We went in early June, I would recommend going a bit later in the season for better weather and for the lifts to be open. However overall a fab trip.

A fantasic week of being brilliantly looked after by Oliver and Elaine. The views and walks exceed my expectations. Chalet Savoy is a very comfortable place to stay, with everything that you need, especially a hot tub for the post walk soak.

This was an excellent trip for hikers who do not have 2 weeks to do the complete Tour de Mont Blanc.  The mountain views were fantastic.  The food was hearty home cooking.

Excellent holiday, thoroughly enjoyed the week. Five hikes with a variety of sights and different terrain. The Chalet Savoy is a perfect base for this trip and size of group. Food was fantastic (thanks Elaine) and wonderful tour guide Oliver (except the jokes).
