I’m a repeat client (Dolomites in 2016). Everything on both trips has been 1st class every step of the way.
Great experience with your team from the start of the planning process to finish of the trek.
We love your personal knowledge of the areas, the great hotels and good food and the helpfulness of your staff. I have used many of the major adventure travel companies and think you guys are the cat’s meow.
The Julian Alps were stunning! We also loved that all the details were taken care of.
We’ve greatly enjoyed each of these trips and love Ryder Walker’s attitude and style. We really didn’t consider another company.
We had a wonderful time! Everything was perfect! Ryder Walker is such a great company!! Thanks so much for another memorable adventure!!
We had such an amazing experience with your Appenzell Hut Hopping that we thought about joining the Italian Dolomites for next year. Your company is the best! I am thinking about a year ahead on these European trips.
What a wonderful trip! Organizing a trip through your group has spoiled me for the rest of my life….I can’t imagine going hiking overseas without your help now!
This trip is ridiculously awesome. I think I just had one of the best dinners in my life tonight. Thank you for organizing this trip. You guys rock!
