1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

I think the attempt to reach the summit of Mont Blanc and in spite not having made it due to bad weather conditions it was still nice to have been to the Dome de Gouter. Other moments were the stunning landscapes.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Physical fitness is indeed a thing one has to have... the views are so much nicer if you don't need to suffer during the hikes.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Yes.

Very good... I enjoyed every moment of it, although I would not have minded if it were a little tougher.
