The Tour of Mont Blanc was a brilliant holiday, and one that I will remember for a very long time. The hotels were varied but conveniently placed so that many could be walked directly to, rather than being bused to at the end of a hard walking day. The rest days were well spaced throughout the holiday. Our Guide/Leader 'Frank' was brilliant, making sure we had fresh produce for our lunch every walking day and that our evening meal was taken care of, taking into account vegetarians and someone who needed gluten free meals. Nothing was too much trouble for Frank. He pointed out and named all the peaks and glaciers that we could see whilst walking. On our free days he suggested places of interest we could visit. I had a lovely time. I couldnt get over the beauty of the Massif, I had to keep pinching myself just in case I was dreaming. Magical!!
Seeing Mont Blanc for the first time on the first day, glistening in the morning sunshine.
See above. Frank really looked after me and my hushand. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He knew the circuit of Mont Blanc like the back of his hand, he was very knowledgeable of the area and its history.
Just do it and enjoy every moment!!
No, I had a lovely holiday.
A superb trek with fantastic scenery, excellent weather and good company. If you enjoy mountain walking with amazing views then this is the trip for you. If however you are not entirely comfortable with climbing on 3 or more consecutive days, then would recommend you do a bit of mountain walking first.
Loved walking from 1 country to the next but could not single out any one particular section as being inspirational......they were all equally as scenic.
Frank was a very competent walk leader who had excellent knowledge of the area and was able to answer all questions.
Take flip flops! Some of auberges require you to remove your walking boots and leave them in an outside building. Flip flops proved to extremely useful on these occasions and were a welcome treat for warm feet.
A wonderful hike around Mont Blanc. The weather was kind to us, the food was delicious and the views amazing.
Walking up the trail to the Col de Tricot - it looked so steep at the bottom!
Frank was calm and laid back, but always watching out for everyone. A very competent leader.
This is not an easy hike and you need to be an experienced hill walker in order to enjoy this. If you are unable to walk up and down very steep hills/mountains for 3 full, consecutive days at a good speed, then think twice about this trip or start your fitness training now!
There are no kettles or tea and coffee facilities in any of the hotel/auberge rooms. We found our travel kettle and cups invaluable.
The leader will be able to advise on how you can reach the next night’s campsite using public transport. There is a reasonable bus service in many of the areas visited. Please contact Exodus directly if you require any further information.

Throughout the trek we use small family run hotels, village inns, pensions, and auberges that vary from unclassified, to 2 or 3-star. All are clean and well run and set up with the needs of the trekker in mind. Please be aware that room sizes (twin, double or triple rooms) and facilities will vary from hotel to hotel and sometimes from room to room within one hotel. On 9 of the nights facilities are ensuite whilst the others have shared bathroom and toilet facilities 'on the landing'. Couples will always have their own room but we cannot say whether this will be twin or double. Single clients must be prepared to share with one or two other members of the same sex. We are unable to accept bookings for single rooms due to the small size of the hotels used and the fact that we are usually staying only one night in each hotel. The Auberge does not provide soap and you may wish to bring a towel, as those provided by continental hotels are sometimes small.

It’s not necessary to take both currencies as the places we visit in Switzerland will take Euros. However, you may not get a particularly favourable Euro/ Swiss Franc exchange rate, but you won't be spending much when over the border so the difference is minimal.
