I would rate the Guide as 10/10, or maybe a 9/10- really excellent.
The cook was great also, as were the donkey drivers. Thanks for setting us up with such great people. The food was very good, 9/10. Maybe a few more potatoes than we bargained for.
The highlights were probably the summits, although the rest days after the summits were very nice.

The training on the glacier was great, very well organised and useful. Accommodation/food/guides/organisation - extremely well organised especially compared to other companies in Huaraz. Suitable equipment was provided which proved to be of a high standard. The tents were ideal for the conditions and the sleeping bags were more than adequate for the temperature. The food was beyond what I expected in terms of quality. It was plentiful and tasty. The guides were knowledgeable and encouraging and prepared to go the extra mile to help.
