If you are thinking of coming along on an expedition of course I would tell you to come with me and that it will be safe, well executed, great fun and an amazing experience. But really you need to hear it from a third party.
So … I have just received the most amazing feedback from Dr Abi who was on the recent Everest expedition. She came along for the 3 week acclimatisation trek and stayed with us for a further 4 weeks as our Everest Base Camp doctor:-
‘I have known Tim for many years and had the privilege of working with him on a couple of expeditions.
I cannot recommend him highly enough in all aspects. He is a highly professional mountaineer and guide in addition to being a very approachable, energetic and personable fellow. He undertakes the organisation and planning of an expedition with the utmost diligence and meticulousness. This excellent preparation makes for a smooth running, well balanced, flexible trip that ensures safety is paramount, both from a mountaineering and medical perspective.
The medical kits on his trips are second to none, and Tim has a broad lay understanding of how to manage acclimatisation and minor medical problems. In this sense, he really stands head and shoulders above other ‘non medical’ guides.
Tim has a wonderful ability to enthuse and encourage team members even when the task at hand is tough. He provides a highly professional and supportive service throughout a trip tailored to each individual’s needs as the expedition evolves, and for the team as a whole.
I have had the opportunity to see how other larger commercial teams function on mountaineering expeditions and Tim’s professionalism, meticulous organisation and enthusiastic support of individual team members is above and beyond any other company out there by far.
Added to which, even though you will be undertaking a serious expedition, you know you will also have an incredibly enjoyable experience. Tim goes that extra mile to ensure that when you have ‘down time’ to relax at base camp, it’s made as enjoyable and entertaining as possible.
Personally, I would not go on an expedition with anyone else.’
