If you're joining us on our 'Tour du Mont Blanc' trip, you'll meet Jean Marc, our lead guide. Jean Marc is a true blue Chamonix Valley local, has been a competitive ski racer on the European circuit, and has led high mountain adventures and expeditions his entire working life. Aside from guiding our 'Tour du Mont Blanc' (if you ask him how many times he's done it, he'll tell you he's lost count!), Jean Marc has guided expeditions in Madagascar, Ethiopia and every corner of Europe. His passion and knowledge of the Alps history, flora, fauna and culture is phenomenal and his enthusiasm and energy seem to be endless! When he's not guiding our trips, you'll find him skiing with his two young daughters and trying to keep up with renovating his Chamonix Valley house.

“Outstanding, Jean-Marc was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a great understanding of the history, geology and geography of the area. He ensured that everyone enjoyed the adventure. He obviously loves the region and conveyed that at all times.”

“It was truly an honor to be part of the trip with Jean-Marc. His laugh and enthusiasm were magical, his knowledge of the area was encyclopedic, and his attention to our needs and safety was warmly comforting. What a great gentleman and ambassador for the Alps!”
