"I would like to say that you have exceeded my expectations (yet again). I came and did the Introductory Mountaineering Course (IDM) in 2007 and was blown away by the professionalism of the guide and the experience of the course. I have since climbed in Europe and must say that NZ is the place to be! I decided to get my brother involved in mountaineering and so I booked the IDM again for this year. We had a brilliant time. The guide again pushed us safely to experience new things. The weather and hut were awesome and I would strongly urge anyone with an interest in getting into mountaineering to sign up for the IDM course. You run a brilliant business and I look forward to organizing my next trip."
