"Would simply say to other climbers if they want the best possible experience go with Adventure Consultants. I can honestly say I think about the whole Everest experience every day of my life and reminisce what an incredible trip it was and how lucky I was to share it with such wonderful people. As Guy says, keep doing it AC style.

"Except for getting us to the summit in a splendid way, the most important thing for me was the way I learned to live in the moment. I will carry that with me for a long time. I learned so much about life and about myself, it went far beyond just reaching the summit. I am very grateful to our guides for that!

"I have had this dream since I was 13, and it is only with your help that I have been able to achieve it. Adventure Consultants is a company, a business, but it is something that also goes well beyond that and I thank you immensely for helping me with my dream.

"Maximisation of chance to get to the top would be the main reason I would recommend Adventure Consultants. Small group numbers, the max oxygen option and flexibility. Detailed dispatches were greatly appreciated. I thoroughly enjoyed my trip and never once felt fear or apprehension. Looking forward to climbing with AC again.

"Highly recommended. The Dhaulagiri expedition was well organised, well-resourced and led by a highly experienced, motivated and competent team of guides supported by Sherpa. The environment on the mountain is high risk and thus paying for this level of support is key to a safe and successful trip. This was the reason that I chose AC for my first 8000m expedition and I consider this to have been an excellent decision.

"The Everest Base Camp trek was a lifelong dream for me. However, just because one has decided to pursue a life’s dream doesn’t mean one will return home with a trip of a lifetime. You were indispensable in me being able to handle the day-today challenges of the trek. For this I am forever grateful.

"What I got was far superior to the normal experience with local guides (on many levels)… superb guides who will teach in an environment with reliable weather, a massive variety of routes, and push you fairly hard but also stick within an acceptable margin of safety.

"I wanted to let you know the fantastic experience I had whilst on the Ice Climbing Course at Wye Creek, Queenstown N.Z. A very challenging course for me being new to ice climbing, but I would have been disappointed had the course been any easier. Professionally run operation by A.C. down to finer details of meals and pre-course arrangements by administration staff. A special thanks to Dean Staples course guide, incredible talent and skills.

"Steve judged the different characters on the expedition very well and everyone warmed to his clear but understated manner. His logistical management of both the equipment and provisions was faultless. When necessary he made sure that the team knew that we were about to enter a more dangerous or challenging section that needed our full attention. His cheese cake was a dream!

"The level of coordination Adventure Consultants provided to us was incredible, and so useful. They took all of the “guess-work” out of planning for this trip, and we had constant support available to answer all of our questions. They could not have been more helpful or provided more expertise/assistant in planning our honeymoon! It was truly an unforgettable trek, and I don’t think we could have had the same experience if a different company had planned it.
