"Danielle, thank you for organizing a fabulous trip. You thought of and organized every detail. The little things really mattered and you always took care of them and thought/planned ahead. You exploited your excellent relationships and local knowledge to make our experience that much more special. We all really appreciated your extremely high commitment to service and your ability to respond to changing conditions and deliver a great outcome. Finally, you are a lot of fun to be with. We all came away admiring you and your business. I will recommend you without reservation. With very best regards"
"We had the very best time with you, it was such fun and it felt like we had been friends for ages! Your organisation and planning just so exceeded our expectations and the great times with you and Ed and Pierrot was truly awesome."
"Thank you so much for this magical experience. In retrospect, our trip took barely a week, but it was absolutely all absorbing. I knew there was something out there we needed to do, without being able to properly define it. But you somehow got it and now I know what it was. The two days at the Haute Route stood at the heart of this experience, where we touched our limits. This wasn’t the day yet, but I felt we were close, and I am so happy we got it done before it was out of reach. You planned and structured everything to the max, there were no empty spaces, no time wasted. We are happy and fulfilled. And totally trashed."
"Thank you for organizing and being part of a fantastic trip, we will all remember it for the rest of our lives as one of the best picturesque trips ever."
"Cela a été un moment remarquable de surprise, de joie avec mes enfants, un superbe hébergement, un repas extraordinaire !!! Même mon fils a tout mangé. Remarquables cantatrices, une chef extraordinaire, des attentions pour les enfants extras, même la course après l'hélicoptère a été "un début de voyage à la James Bond." Tout était parfait, mon cœur battait très fort de joie, d'amour et d’étonnement."
"Just a quick note to say thanks for organising this trip - just got back and had an excellent time!"
"Your info rings sooooo true. Yes........ you are family and we are too and that's exactly what it felt like when we travelled on our fabulous journey skisafari with you!"
"A great taste of the regional specialties Pinch me moment: The rock climbing and glacier walks were truly memorable"
"2 smashed and exhausted but elated guys just finished their ascent and descent and are safe and well. For both of us this was the most physically and mentally challenging thing we've done. We climbed not with our bodies which were finished long ago but with our minds, there is something truly wonderful about being able to think about nothing else in the world but where you will put your next step and the mountain and conditions allow you nothing else. You are forced to be completely in the moment, and to do it together father and son is the greatest of blessings. Danielle and the guides Paul and Pascal were absolutely marvellous taking care of our every need."
"Once again, many thanks for arranging this, we appreciate that you adapted the planned itinerary to accommodate our needs, and we really enjoyed doing something totally different!"
"Courmayeur was beautiful, we really enjoyed exploring the town and eating (and drinking) in the local restaurants"
"We went up a fabulous mountain trail on ski shoes - eating local bread, meat and cheese washed down with red wine on top of a mountain next to a restaurant buried in the snow was an experience we'll remember forever."
"Thanks again for a great time in your beautiful mountains. It is nice to be home in our respective houses but what an adventure we had with you. Thank you for taking such good care of us, challenging us and exposing us to some of the many treasures of Switzerland and Italy. It was a great experience!"
"SwisSkiSafari choppers drop off skiers near the top of peaks, and then guides lead them down runs that seem to go on forever. In some cases, you'll get a three-plus-hour run descending more than 8,000 vertical feet from summit to valley floor in stunningly beautiful country. Now that's skiing"
It isn’t a race.
It’s not about being the fittest, fastest or the flashiest,
It’s about connecting with the incredible nature of the Alps.
