    Sara was my guide. She was calm and clear with her directions. We had a good but chilly weather day. Climbing was moderately hard but I’m 70 and found it fun! I took the 2 1/2 hour climb which was perfect for me because I had done a 6 mile hike the day before. The views and the exercise were outstanding.

The tour was great. They cover lots of different spots. The tour guide was great as well. The only concern I have is with "Get Your Guide" team who mentioned the hotel I stayed is not a pick up place so we walked to the nearest spot in a rainy day but the tour bus came to our hotel looking for us and they mentioned that they cover most of the hotels as their pickup locations. "Get Your Guide" team, please keep that in mind from next time.

We went up on the first time available! We had clear sky’s. It snowed over night and we attempted the hike to the summit but did not have poles or our spikes for our shoes. It was very slippery so we heard down. It clouded in and started snowing. We enjoyed a coffee at the top. On a clear dry this would be amazing! The views incredible!

Our guide Jacob was excellent. He made sure we got to the summit safely and shared a variety of informations with us. We would recommend this hike!

Estelle was friendly, knowledgeable, and entertaining. The food was very good. I highly recommend this tour.

I had never done something like this but would 100% do it again. Can only recommend!
