My husband & I just did a 10 night self guided trek in the Dolomites. We have walked with several different companies in the past & have never had this level of attention to detail. It was a joy to stay in the carefully selected hotels/B&Bs. Fabulous food, great ideas for side trips, alternative routes (weather & energy dependent). Loved the personal touches, staying in contact & rapid response to questions. I would whole heartedly recommend Alpinehikers to first time hikers up to experienced trekkers. Thank you for a perfect holiday!!

Alpine Hikers arranged an awesome self guided hiking tour, in the Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland, for my group of five people. The hikes were amazing. We have never seen such stunning scenery. On top of that, the Inns were top notch, with delicious gourmet dining. All at a very reasonable price. The knowledge and expertise of Alpine Hikers made this spectacular vacation possible. We never could have arranged such a wonderful tour on our own. Also, due to the relationship Alpine Hikers has with the Inn Keepers, we honestly feel we were given special attention at each Inn and often received the nicest rooms available. Thanks Alpine Hikers for the trip of a lifetime!

My wife and I have been blessed to be able to see some beautiful places around the world, but neither of us can remember a trip where we were able to experience more stunning natural beauty than this one. On top of the perfect weather and scenery, we were blown away by the fabulous accommodations, delicious food, and exceptional service we received. This was the first time we have ever been on a vacation that was planned by someone else, and I have to say that no detail was overlooked. From the hotel and train reservations to the recommended hikes, everything was perfectly in order. We have been impressed with your meticulous organization and prompt and thorough responsiveness during the whole process. We had the pleasure of meeting Michelle when we were in Murren, and were impressed that she took the time to check in on us to make sure our trip was going well. In short, this trip exceeded our already high expectations and is one we will never forget. We are already trying to decide which of your tours we will do next. We can't sing your praises enough!

"This Peru travel agency planned and booked a custom trip for me and my wife to Peru in October 2015. The trip included a short stay in Lima, and almost a week in the Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu and Cusco. Their service was outstanding. The planning for the trip was perfect, and we relied entirely on them as we had not been to Peru before. They also went beyond the call of duty by getting a reservation at a good hotel in Lima even though there was a huge convention of the world bank in town at the time. They persisted until they found a cancellation. they even booked two good restaurants for us in Lima. The guides they provided were also excellent, including one who was truly outstanding.

I never would have located this company except through Zicasso. Two years ago we made a trip to Brazil and we looked and looked for a travel agency of this kind and never did find one. I would highly recommend using Zicasso to find the appropriate agency if you are traveling somewhere that you have not previously been to, or if you do not have an agency you are satisfied with."
