What our customers say:

"Flawless planning and organisation by Alpine Treks: we stayed in 12 different hotels/dortoirs/huts on this tough 14 day walking holiday with no problems. Our small group of 5 was led by guide Robert Farwell who is competent, knowledgeable, and good company. Thanks to Alpine Treks for a memorable experience."
Mark Bentinck

"My wife and I recently enjoyed a very memorable hike of the Swiss Alps guided by Alpine Treks. We experiences a challenging, yet relaxing hike, with top notch accommodations, food and a knowledgeable and friendly guide (Thank you Robert). We were paired with other hikers with similar skills and backgrounds. The group chemistry was way more than we hoped for and we believe most of it was due to great planning and organization by Alpine Treks. It is a tribute to the guide (and Apline Treks) when you can totally enjoy the views, company and accommodations without a single worry. Great Job - we highly recommend using their service."
Mr & Mrs Betcher

"I signed up with Alpine Treks for the Haute Route (Chamonix to Zermatt) trek with a friend and we really lucked out. We had a compatible group of five with a very knowledgeable, competent, French and German speaking guide (Robert Farwell). He was especially helpful to me when the soles came off my boots after two days (in spite of pre trek repairs) and I had to buy some new ones in Champex. We had a week of glorious weather and only 2 rainy days in 12. The views were spectacular. There were no logistical problems at any of the hotels or mountain huts. It's a strenuous and occasionally challenging hike and fortunately everyone was up to it, as it would make a big difference to the experience if there were different levels of hiking ability in the group. Definitely recommended."
