We just returned from an ideal vacation trekking the Bernese Oberland trail! Alpinehikers, with great advice from Matt, did a great job helping us set up a dream vacation in the Alps. So many highlights, great maps & info along the way, and overall great experience. I highly recommend them!

My daughter and I did the Eiger to Matterhorn self-guided trip with Alphinehikers and it was amazing! Matt and others were so helpful from the very beginning when we were deciding which trip to do. They were informative and thoughtful in answering all of our questions. The trip was very well planned and we had a wonderful time. The communication was outstanding! Thank you!!!

My son and I did a self-guided tour of Bernese-Oberland and Zermatt (May 30 to Jun 9 2018). All aspects of the trip were planned fantastically by Abby and it was amazing. The details and information provided along with the hotels (recommended by Alpinehikers) we stayed at were all spectacular. We were pretty much treated as VIPs everywhere we stayed and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend and look forward to another trip soon!

I´ve learned so much about Peruvian culture and history. One of the best experiences was meeting all the people, like the Ecoamazonia lodge guide Elmer, Sol in Cusco!.
