    Greg - October 19, 2017

    The Alpine Ramble team from start to finish were unfaultering in their professional service.
    The management were organized, attentative to all requests and have an ability to instil confidence within our inexperienced team.
    Our guide was like a highly knowledgeable friend who would listen and endeavour to meet all of our needs for this experience. His assistant, being highly knowledgeable, was excellent at assisting all of us as well as our lead guide. The Sherpa crew's strength and determination was very impressive and gave our team confidence in our goal of reaching Everest Base Camp.
    The safety of team members was paramount and Alpine Ramble always maintained good team interaction to determine each members physical state as we ascended the mountain range. Oxygen tests were performed at altitude daily to ensure our safety.
    Overall I was pleasantly surprised how well the schedule was adhered to.
    Many thanks to Alpine Ramble, the experience was genuinely appreciated and I would recommend this company to anyone.
