John Jordan climbed Mt Blanc with us in 2009

Dear Franck & Olivier,

I am writing to thank you for a most amazing experience. I teamed up with Guide de Cimes and guide Olivier Gayan to pursue my goal of summiting Western Europe’s highest peak, Mont Blanc. Thanks to you and your team for making my dream became a reality. Firstly I would like thank you for all your help preparing for the climb. With your guidance I was able to train and acclimatise in the Alps and build up the fitness necessary for such a challenge. Secondly many thanks to all your help arranging logistics and booking accommodation on the hill. With your insights and contacts we were able to change our plans and dates at the last minute to summit earlier in the week before the bad weather came in. On the climb my guide Olivier was fantastic. The decisions he made on the mountain undoubtedly made a huge difference to our success and ensured a safe ascent and decent of the mountain. Thank you all for such an amazing time!

I would recommend Guide de Cimes to anyone looking to experience the wonders the Alps. If anyone would like to contact me to ask any questions of my experience before booking with Guide de Cimes I would be happy to answer any emails.


All the best,

John Jordan
