“Leaving Pontresina now for 10:02 train to Zernez and hike/hut in park there. Hotel Steinbock was terrific. We did all three hikes Troy recommended. All great. One could spend more time here. Would recommend this to everyone.”
“Chris and I just left Zermatt and are en route to Meiringen. What an incredible trip so far!! I know we have a lot left, but we have so enjoyed the places we have stayed and the recommendations that you provide in the guide that I just wanted to send a quick note of appreciation. I think Chris’s favorite was Chamonix – he loved being at the top of the gondola taking pictures of Mont Blanc and the rest of the range, while my favorite was Zermatt: day hiking to Zmutt, exploring the Gornergrat area, and relaxing in the spa at the Hotel Europe. It was just amazing! We hope the beautiful weather holds and are looking forward to our hiking adventure! Thank you so much for planning such an incredible honeymoon for us. :) “
“Well, our trip was fabulous! Thank you so much, Troy, for planning such a nice itinerary for us. We loved Salzburg, and everything we did there. Munich — not so much — just a big city — but a great base for exploring the castle one day and Dachau the next. Then Switzerland! It’s funny, after California, I thought England was so green, but now after being in Switzerland, England looks parched! The scenery in Wengen was so beautiful. The biggest surprise was how much the Jungfrau had changed since I’d last been there… But it was stunningly beautiful, and we hiked up to the hut where they served goulash, and then just wandered around and stayed hours peering out at the gorgeous scenery. We didn’t get to go up to the Schilthorn, but we did lots of other things in the couple days we were there, and loved every minute. Oh, and the suite at the last hotel was PERFECT!!! We LOVED it — made all the difference, and a great way to end the trip.
We really appreciated Michelle being available too — had a couple questions which she took care of for us on the last day, and now we’re back in England, looking back on a fabulous little jaunt to one of our favorite places. “
“I have traveled with Alpine Hikers for the past 10 years (yes, every summer!) which should be testament enough for how great I think Troy and all of his guides are. I’ve done the Dolomites tour, Haute Route, Tour of Mont Blanc, Saas Fee, a short Zermatt-based self-guided, and the Bernese Oberland Traverse (5 times – yes, it’s my favorite and I like to think of it as my “time share”). I can truly say that each trip has been unique, through its combination of the people on the trip, weather, accommodations, and the terrain and magnificence of the different areas of the Alps and all they have to offer. Every trip offers something new and wonderful. I have done a fair amount of adventure travel and Troy’s careful planning, attention to detail, and level of client-centeredness are unmatched. He and his guides are extremely knowledgeable about the areas in which they are guiding and can adapt to changing weather, specific needs of clients, and any other surprises that adventure travel might bring.”
