Just perfect ! I would recommend Undiscovered Alps to anyone. Sally and JB were very welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The booking process was flawless and the points system works very well. During the activities the guides were professional, friendly and motivating…
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in the Alps – such a beautiful area and with so much to do, we wished we could have stayed for longer – we felt we were just getting started! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Undiscovered Alps to others.
All our family had a fabulous time and can highly recommend a holiday with Undiscovered Alps. The sun shone for the majority of our holiday, which is always a bonus when you are in the mountains, the activities were excellent and accommodation top notch.
