Despite the fact that we were not registered .... (Our name did not appear anywhere) we were made very welcome and the meal was very good and very filling ... I recommend ... The experience was a first for us .... combining a meal and a walk on the lake was great

The tour is excellent, the only thing is that you have to decide whether to ski or climb the glacier since in two hours you don't have time to do much of both.

Service and tour were excellent. People were kind, crew waited for us and food was excellent.

Good to consider for Ski experience and other snow activities for beginners within a day

Fantastic is an experience not to be missed, we will return ...
