Fantastic walking on a very famous and popular trek but nevertheless, still quiet in many places. Tour leader was great and worked very hard to make sure we were all well fed, happy and in good shape. This was quite a step up from the tour I did last year graded "moderate" although one of the reasons I chose it was to experience some tougher walking. The accommodation, however, was not challenging, in fact, it was a lot better than expected which raised a few questions as to why it was deemed necessary by Explore for us to be without our main luggage for most of the trip. I had assumed that Explore were not able to organise delivery of our luggage to accommodation for four nights because we were staying in remote refuges away from vehicle access. This proved not to be the case, all the accommodation with the possible exception of one were medium sized hotels with full access to main roads. As there were two sessions of two nights without main luggage it meant carrying three days of lunch, clothes and anything else you might need for two nights and three days twice over the course of the trek. This for me was the biggest challenge and it wasn't much fun sitting in a nice hotel in the evening in my waterproof trekking trousers! Also, you do need swiss francs for the days you are in Switzerland, euros are accepted but you will get a lousy exchange rate. Otherwise a very good trip and certainly worth doing if you like long treks and mountain views.

Stoke on Trent
Stunning scenery.
Overnight stay at Les Contamines would be better closer to the town as the hotel and location were soul less/no atmosphere.
Hotel in Forscal (?) had serious fly problem.
The walk ended in Chamonix, and we had to get a bus back to Argentiere - it would have been good to stay the final night in Chamonix.
Walk was strenuous as detailed in the notes-and carrying own kit for 3 days should not be underestimated.
Trek covers a lot of ground, which is achievable, but you should have a good level of fitness, especially for uphills.
The pace of this trip was somewhat dictated by 3 or 4 of the group rather than the guide-they were all fitness fanatics and this split the group into two. Usually these trips bring the group together throughout the course of the walk but unfortunately it was difficult as the lead group wanted to move at an extremely fast pace, running on many occasions.
Other accommodation was good, and food provided was always tasty and well prepared.
Guide had extremely good knowledge of the mountains and the area we covered, and was passionate about his job. He answered questions on many aspects including the wildlife, geography and geology.

This was a great tour with a really good leader and group of people. The walking was hard in parts, but no more so than expected, and completely worth the effort with beautiful scenery. Our tour leader enabled everything to run smoothly; he was very experienced and knowledgeable and was able to manage the whole group, keeping people together where necessary but allowing everyone to walk at their own pace and not compromising on safety. Accommodation was generally very good.

Upper Rissington
A fantastic trek with beautiful scenery around every corner. Definitely a challenging trip if you haven't done any preparations with long days walking with lots of ascent and descent. A good waterproof jacket and trousers advisable. Hotels were great and food very good. Our guide Neil was excellent very knowledgeable about the area and knew the best spots to stop for lunchtime picnic! A must for all walkers and another box ticked! Rest day in la Plaud I recommend going on the skyway its pricey at 48 euros but if your like me and like being high up and into spectacular views its a must. Recommend a 40litre day sack or larger for the 2 nights you don't get main luggage. 1 with 1 compartment and flip over top rather ones with various zip compartments might be advantageous.

A great tour and quite demanding and our guide, Simon, was very good. There was still quite a lot of snow we had to walk across at higher altitudes, but this just added to the experience. We were lucky with the weather with just one soaking, but good waterproofs are essential and they double up as a good wind proof outer later when it gets windy on the cols.
As you don't have access to your luggage for two consecutive nights on two occasions only carry the bare minimum to keep the pack weight down as you'll be expected to carry a share of the packed lunch too.
The highlight is the stunning scenery all the way round and the cable car to Punta Helbronner above Courmayeur is expensive, but 100% worth it for the views.

A fantastic trek amid the stunning scenery of the Alps. Our very experienced tour leader Simon was excellent throughout, very efficient, knowledgeable and good company. The accommodation overall was very good with some lovely hotels and rather more basic but still comfortable auberges. My top tips would be not to overload yourself with things, take plenty of sunscreen and a pair of lightweight shoes to carry with you in your day pack (flipflops or very light trainers) in case your boots get wet!

Simon the tour leader was invaluable on the trip, both from his friendly personality, to his knowledge - and you always knew you were in a pair of safe hands.

The group I travelled with were all excellent, and I'll hopefully bump into some of them on future trips.

Some highlights including traversing snows, and powerful mountain rivers. Also the various Col's we summited were gorgeous.

In terms of tips, I'd recommend a camelbak/general backpack oriented water supply. On some of the hotter days it felt quite laborious dropping my bag off & on to get some water out.

Fantastic scenery. A great but challenging hike but well worth it. You should prepare before you go with some training as it will make the hike more enjoyable. The food was very good . The group were excellent, everyone helped each other when necessary. We stayed in some lovely hotels. Our guide Simon was excellent. He gave you confidence with his knowledge of the mountains.

It all went to plan except the five hour delay at Manchester on the way out - but that was Easyjet's fault!
