G Adventures's Trekking Mont Blanc trip was a fabulous experience! We had a 50-year age span among the 14 participants, and everyone got along tremendously well.

Tour du Mont Blanc This is a Must see Must do Tour. It brings to vivid life a landscape which we only see in our imaginations. Bertrand is a stoic leader with a free spirit. His guiding hand brought all concerned at every fitness level together on a single mission to explore and enjoy a world of ceaseless wonders. I will never forget our first days trek & first night in a high mountain refuge. Or climbing to the 'Fenetre de Arpet' & discovering that a pack of potato chips had become a drivers airbag at such a high altitude. I have returned with more energy & curiosity and am addicted to pushing my own limitations. Thank you both - Bertrand & Gabriel. I hope to do it all again some day!!Overall Rating
