The trip was really good - lots of incredible experiences. Hiking through the Alps was awesome.
My only real criticism is that many of the hikes had to be adjusted because of unseasonable weather. While I fully appreciate that we can't control the weather, I think that the service provider should have flagged the conditions a day or two before.
The guide did a great job of adapting to the conditions and ensuring that we had the best experience possible.
