Here is what Bob says:

Thanks for your response and I want to further congratulate you on the quality experience I had with your Summit Climb organization.  I also am impressed with the humanitarian effort you put forth as well.
 
As I have mentioned to others " it was not ALL about the Mountain but about people as well".  The wonderful opportunity to meet quality professional guides with many experiences to share along with competent and caring support from individuals like your staff at the office and in addition, hard work from other support staff including the Sherpa's made for an exceptional personal experience.  It was another plus to have been a part of a great group of climbers that seemed to bond and were willing to share their personal experiences that really cut to the heart soon after meeting each other and I am confident that many of us will continue keeping in contact with each other in the future.
 
I am so fortunate to go on this Trek as I grew up on a farm without mountain climbing experience or world travel. 
 
Thanks again!

Here is what Tom says:
 
Overall, the trip was a great experience and I wasn't disappointed.  It was a great overall experience; everything seemed to be organized well and people were helpful.  The timing of two days or so at each end in Nepal was good.
 
Office, leaders, staff:  Outstanding.  The office staff were great in Kathmandu - very helpful and well-organized.  The leader was a terrific trek leader and if I were to return to Nepal or Tibet for additional trekking, I'd want to go with him.
