Thomas — January 27, Perhaps a need for more emphasis on the physical and mental toughness needed to summit Aconcagua but still all excellent. Kiaran was an excellent leader — approachable, supportive and very well organised. An excellent trip — tough but very rewarding.
Aconcagua – Normal Route - 17 days
Anonymous — December 14, Your Argentinian guide is excellent but his English will need to improve. Having someone to speak with local staff in Spanish was very useful and beneficial. I chose Adventure Peaks because of your advice and recommendations regarding Martin our leader. Adam — December 14, The kit list could be broken down more to essential or optional, nice to have items.
Martin was excellent and so is Maxi. You guys were cheaper than jagged Globe which is why I chose Adventure Peaks.

Matt G — February 19, Claire — March 29, We had very good guides. The lead guide Martin was absolutely lovely and very patient. The local guides Pablo and Marcos were very knowledgeable. On summit day he set a good pace and made some tough but fair decisions regarding the progress of certain team members, for their own safety.

Mark M — February 15, Well planned, successful trip. Chris was very ill for a number of days during the trip but never let it affect the team. We developed as a team under his leadership and were ultimately successful because of his planning and guidance. Ciaran — February 16, Really great trip.

We summited and made it safely down so cannot complain. Chris [trip leader]…an absolute trooper given he came down with a virus, but still managed to get us to the summit and down again safely. Really thorough when it came to briefings. Really good…It took a lot of time and effort to get up there, but the views were breathtaking. Ivar M — January 6, The leader was excellent…Paul was exceptional, highly knowledgeable, very calm and controlled under pressure, excellent risk assessment and above all a highly positive attitude and encouraging nature. I cannot recommend him highly enough for future trips.
Scott P — January 9, Carrie [trip leader] has been the best leader I have to my previous five expeditions.
Fred — January 10, Brilliant organisation, planning, and leadership on the expedition. I thought Carrie [leader] did such a great job on the mountain. Kept the team together and well managed while being approachable and friendly. She was fantastic!
Ian — February 5, Getting to the top was very emotional. The culmination of a 25 year dream and to do it with my son was amazing. You have to work really hard on summit day. Even though the trek is a difficult walk the level of hardship is high which makes it all the more rewarding. Brilliant organisation by Adventure Peaks. Trip leader was excellent, got the balance right allowing freedom whilst remaining safe. Chris — February 6, Excellent service, communication and guidance.follow site
