Throughout the years, we have received many reviews of people who have been on hikes with us, be it in the Alps, in the rest of Europe, or in Nepal.
Here are some of them to give you a better idea what we’re all about. If you would like to talk to any of our past hikers, please contact us, we are more than happy to put you into contact with them.
We are back home after completing the TMB last week.
The trip was excellent, the whole family is high spirits and the feeling of accomplishment is overwhelming. The kids (as we) feel everything is achievable, anyplace”¦ anytime”¦
Many thanks for the great organization. In the field Lindsey was excellent, took really good care of us, her communication with us and the children was superb. All of us felt a true part of the day planning and learnt a lot from her. Once on the track we really felt your route planning, accommodation, etc. was truly made with deep understanding of the capabilities of the family and great knowledge of the route and places. All during our tour we felt Alpine interface and particularly Karen were keeping a watchful eye from above so we are comfortable and get the best value accommodation on the route.
Once again many thanks for the organization and a super successful tour.”

Enjoyed the trek with the other American friends, the guides Mr.Mark and Mr. Blaise, who were enormously helpful, cooperative and jolly good fellows. The stopovers, food were excellent. Personally, my feeling clicked with the city or the
village of Courmayeur amongst all. Next, I would like to do the same around the Zermatt or the Eiger after next year.
If you have any plans around these places, please let me be informed.
Thank you so much, greetings from Tokyo.”
you both took such amazing care of us! We had the absolute BEST time! We can’t wait to get together again very soon in Colorado and in Europe!
Thank you again so much for our spectacular week.
P.S. Please know that we would love to be references for you. We are already dreaming about our holiday with you next year. We can’t wait to start planning all the details :)”

Sleep still eludes me, but at some point this week, I feel certain to be back on track. My secret medicine to function in a sleepless state is — chocolate!!! I am now a full appreciator of its medicinal qualities. I wish both of you much success and harmony. Thank you for making my first hiking experience such a positive and
rewarding one. I will be more than happy to be a reference for you if future clients need to speak to someone about your trips, or interview you mercilessly. I hope our paths will cross sooner than later.”

Lindsay and Martin are a world-class act and we greatly appreciated their superb efforts and dedication to ensuring our trip was safe and fun for all.
In addition to his yummy lunches, driving the van (and managing the tupperware), Martin provided exceptional comic relief at dinner–always, of course, in his inimitable Brit manner.
Brent and I particularly appreciated Lindsay’s success in arranging for us to look in on the Beaufort cheese “factory”, the stopover at the mountain hut with the wood stove and resident chien, the visit to the cow bell factory outside Chamonix, and especially for inviting us over to their cozy apartment in Finhaut for vin rouge Of course, there’s only one downside to all this – Lindsay and Martin have set the bar too high for any future guide team to effectively compete.
Please accept our most appreciative thanks to all who made this a trip of a lifetime.”

I want to send you a few thoughts about our recent trip trekking the Tour Du Mont Blanc (TMB). As I mentioned to you on the phone, overall this trip was exceptional. You are welcome to use this letter in whole or part or to have anyone contact me as a reference. Alpine Interface is a great company and we look forward to more adventures with you.

I also want to thank you for helping me with my lost luggage, and providing me with clothing for the first day. Thank you again, Louie, for helping me get boots and helping Doug pick out a ligher pack. Thanks too for looking after Doug after he had to drop out of the trek. What a wonderful memory this will be. If you need a refererence for future potential clients, it would be my pleasure to contribute. “

“I was planning to email you today to tell you what a wonderful time I had on the TMB. It isn’t often that your expectations are not simply met, but exceeded.
This was the case with the TMB. You and Louis set the tone by your caring and concerned answers to all of my booking questions. Neil was prompt and pleasant in picking my sister and me up from our hotel at the start of the tour. Charlotta was a most professional, competent and caring trekking guide. She was knowledgeable and pleasant. She did everything possible to ensure that the members of her group got the most from their tour. Peter was an excellent driver. He went out of his way to make things run smoothly and was extremely reliable, pleasant and helpful.
As for the tour itself; the meals were excellent…my sister and I had a hard time deciding which dinner was the best. The hotels were charming and a pleasure to reach after a hard days climb! Charlotta found trails which were challenging but the view always rewarded the effort and, as you mentioned, the weather for much of the tour was spectacular. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the TMB with alpine interface to my friends based on my very positive experience and hope that I will be able to join you in another adventure in the future. Again, thank you for making my holiday so special and enjoyable. “

If we think about another hiking trip in Europe (maybe Italy) we will definitely be in touch. Louie was also helpful about France; Normandy in particular, which we hope to visit”¦maybe next year.
Just want to thank you for an awesome time. You all did a GREAT job of showing us your world or at least part of it, and it is a beautiful part of the world. Our accommodations were fun and interesting, I love visiting places with character!! Kudos to all of you!!
I am sure I will be traveling with you again in the future. In the meantime, stay strong, happy, and Blessed!”
Sucha had a great time…it was a present for her 50th birthday. I’m so glad you helped me to give that to her.”

You mentioned the Slovenia adventure. We may be interested. If not that then something else for sure.
Keep us on the list and let us know what is happening…”
