Hear It From Our Guests

“In a word, everything went smoothly. The trails were great, and the views were fantastic. The hotels were all wonderful, and the meals were exceptional. All the baggage transfers went off without a hitch. Your trail descriptions and maps were great – we had no trouble finding trailheads or staying on course. And best of all, the weather cooperated nicely – we had 6 straight days of beautiful sunshine. The Engadine valley is truly one of the most picturesque places on earth. A hearty “thank you” to you and the whole crew at Ryder Walker for a great job organizing this fantastic trip.”
