Our small group guided tours are a great way to explore a new area easily and safely.  You’ll learn a lot along the way, and will meet and hike with many others who share your interests. 

Our guided tours are fun. They’re relaxing. Plus, all of our tours are guaranteed to run, with no group minimum!  We are specialists in the Swiss, French and Italian Alps.  We develop, organize and scout all of our tours personally.  Each of our itineraries are unique adventures designed to show off the best that the region has to offer.  You’re going to love it.

We offer a select variety of carefully crafted guided tours.  Choose from village-based or inn-to-inn hiking trips, luxury or classic, single region or multi-region highlights.

Our Guided tours are all guaranteed departures with a minimum of just one guest, so you can always book with confidence. Sign up, buy your plane tickets, and you are going hiking in the Alps.

Our guides are an elite crew, some of the best in the Alps, chosen for their professional skills, their charm, and wide-ranging individual experience and interests. We love to hang with them, and we think you will too.

Small groups create a fun, flexible dynamic that’s just not possible with a larger number of people, so we strive to keep things small, with groups limited to 14 people. This allows us to get to know each other, and to stay in smaller, more intimate inns that bigger groups can’t visit.

Our guided tours include lodging, all breakfasts, all lunches, most dinners, baggage transport between inns, ground transport during the tour, selected entrance fees, gratuities and taxes, and daily guided hikes. We include shuttles or Swiss rail passes for travel to/from the airport on most tours. We don’t expect you to pay for cable cars, buses or trains we take during the course of our hikes, tip the hotel and restaurant staff (we do that), or provide your own meals. Just show up ready to hike, relax and have a great time.

Guides are the face of your company.  They know the mountains, the routes and the customs of the people intricately.  They are very knowledgeable about many subjects and are very perceptive about people and actions.  They give great advice about many things including hiking techniques and proper nutrition for challenging days. They love what they do and excel at it.  A joy  to experience. Thank You for planning such a special trip, from the shuttles to the hotels, the routes and methods of travel to the trail heads – it was all exciting and worry free for me. It was a trip that I will never forget and so far have not quit talking about to everyone that I meet.  It was very empowering for me, a feat to be very proud of.  A big thanks to our guides who made it all possible. Eight complete strangers started the hike, but 10 days later we were leaving it as a family.  We shared many experiences, had many laughs and encouraged one another along the way.
