The tour was a great combination of exercising in beautiful nature, discovering local flora and fauna, and learning a range of regional, historic, ecological, geographic and linguistic insights. Alessandro was friendly, engaging and informative during the guided tour, and Emilie was a very hospitable and welcoming host. Highly recommend this tour! It was the highlight of my European holiday, and the Savoie Valley is a jewel of breathtaking majesty and beauty.

A beautiful walk through villages and forest. Alessandro & Emilie were very welcoming and friendly, and accommodated for our family of 5 (including 3 young children). Alessandro was full of interesting information and the children enjoyed exploring in the forest, collecting pinecones, flowers and nuts. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience the French countryside. Thankyou Alessandro & Emelie

Alessandro was very nice, knowledgeable, communicative and made us feel wonderful. The trip was nice and the explanations and conversation made everything a perfect day, with the amazing views. We recommend it as a great experience to feel nature, hear stories and enjoy a nice walk in the alps.

Alessandro was conversational and made us feel very comfortable. He led the excursion at a moderate pace and was considerate when we needed to rest for a moment. He was knowledgeable about the area and made the experience very interesting. We highly recommend Alessandro.
