Guest Review: An Amazing Birthday Celebration!

Dear Peter,
I simply can’t wait for the official feedback form to tell you what an amazing 60th birthday celebration I had on our private Haute Route trek. The weather was perfect, the lodging and meals were delightful, and Kenny truly outdid himself. He has always been a wonderful guide…professional, customer-focused, respectful and intuitive. But after ten years (our first hike with him was on my 50th birthday!), he has become a special friend. 
We were so sorry that Staffan was ill much if the time.  But he was a good sport and Kenny picked up the slack seamlessly. As always, the “Strapping Swede” was a favorite with the ladies.    
Thank you for giving us these years of joy in the mountains we love. You have assembled and developed an unsurpassed team of guides, and have kept your itineraries fresh and exciting for us long-time customers. We also appreciated your kindness in treating our jolly group to celebratory libations.
I’ve attached a photo from my amazing Haute Route 60th birthday celebration. It was taken in Trient after dinner, a really cool birthday cake, and far too many drinks. Kenny was both head guide and master of ceremonies. I’m sure we wore him out!  
I’d love for you to put the photo on the blog to encourage others to celebrate major milestones on the trail with Ryder-Walker.
I hope you will pass along my gratitude to Kenny and Staffan for a trek that far surpassed my highest hopes.

Thanks Blythe. It was our pleasure to host your group. A HUGE happy birthday to you! -The RW Staff.
