I had a wonderful experience – as always – with AAI. The guide team was phenomenal; they were always helpful and their combined experience truly astounding. Their willingness to share their knowledge and stories of past expeditions made for some very entertaining conversations. Despite some tricky logistics and early evacuations of some of our team members, they were able to divide the work load and make all of us feel well taken care of and safe. Their enthusiasm for the mountains and their desire to share their love for the outdoors was both palpable and contagious.
I had a fantastic time on the 13-day course and would recommend it to anyone interested in learning to get started as an alpine climber. I feel somewhat capable as a climber after taking this course and am excited to continue taking trips through Alpine Ascents.
This was a great trip that was made exceptional with the variety of excursions and experiences available. Enjoyed the cultural aspects as well as the hiking/climbing. Our guide was excellent in every way.
I’ve always had a great experience on AAI outings. I just want to add that your entire team is A+++. Great client group too! This Mongolia expedition far exceeded my expectations.
The trip was great! Stuart was great and was very informative with climbing. He made the trip overall very fun. Even when we were at camp there was never a boring moment. The tours throughout the city were very informative and provided a nice recovery day after climbing.
The guides were excellent; the hikes were beautiful and it was a great experience. I very much enjoyed exploring that part of the world. Overall, a great trip! I’d highly recommend it.
The logistics were perfect, a big key for such a long trip. The Treks were just the right distance and the views were spectacular. Jose Luis was very organized and kept the group together and having fun. All guides were great. Excellent knowledge of plants, wildlife, and glaciers. All Lodges and ECO camp were great.
I enjoyed the trek very much. Terrific location, outstanding guides, nice itinerary. Trip is fabulous.
As we expect from Alpine Ascents, the quality of the accommodations and guides was exceptional. Clearly Jose Luis is a very experienced expedition climbing guide. The local guides (Rodigo, Roberto, and Jonas) were all very knowledgeable about local fauna, flora and geology. They were great.
Mt. Baker was a true wilderness experience. Remote and primitive. I will always remember having dinner the last night with a mountain goat grazing on my left and a rock slide on my right.
