It was my first multi-day through hike ever, and I was extremely fortunate that I chose Cairn Trekking’s 7-day TMB, and more importantly, I was more than grateful for our guide, Matthieu, who taught me many trekking techniques that helped me pull through the journey. He also led us to hike a few unusual variations, which, if unguided, were impossible for me to even know. The mule also was a big blessing to help me finish the trip, as I did have to carry some extra things due to special health issues. Although Cairn was pretty unknown in the US and I took a leap of faith when I booked the TMB trip a few months ago, I was so happy that I met many wonderful people, who showed me a totally new experience. Oh BTW, I found that the trip cost I paid directly to Cairn, was much lower than what I would have paid if I booked essentially the identical trip that was offered by another tour company but was actually led by Cairn (as the outsourced tour provider).

Our guide, Phillipe, was excellent! He knew everything about Mont Blanc. He was very considerate of different hiking levels. The lunches he provided were tasty and healthy.
