Zoom Consultations

I now offer 1 hour zoom consultations for TMB trek planning. These are particularly useful for trekkers aiming to hike the Tour du Mont Blanc independently. You can email me your proposed planned itinerary and I will offer advice and tips on route decisions and answer any questions that you have. I generally discuss subjects such as water stops, variants, how to book the refuges, what to take, weather, maps, getting to Chamonix, trekking solo, phone signal etc. I find talking through the trek one on one really helps people feel much more at ease in their planning stage as it is tricky to plan it all online when you’ve never been here. Don’t worry you can ask me anything – as long as it’s about the Tour du Mont Blanc! You can read a few of my testimonials below.

Zoom consultations are for a maximum of 1 hour with an upfront fee of $150.00. This fee includes an initial email to set up the zoom call, a 1 hr session and a follow up email including video link to replay the zoom.

The TMB refuges are now 99% full for 2023 at particular bottlenecks. I can help you plan around those bottlenecks, or alternatively I can help you plan another trek in the same region but slightly off the TMB route. This would mean you would still experience the wonder of trekking between high altitude mountain huts through the stunning Alpine peaks.

I am so happy that I stumbled upon www.tourdumontblanchike.com when I was planning my trek because I am absolutely certain I would not have had the confidence to plan my trip without it!! I decided to schedule a consultation with Mags just for extra assurance of my plan, what a smart move on my part! Mags is an expert in the area and gave me so much useful information about TMB, Chamonix, and the surrounding area. She gave us hotel and restaurant recommendations and even typed up everything we discussed in our Zoom call in a followup email. If you are considering a trip here or completing the TMB- I would highly recommend a consultation with Mags who is not only incredibly helpful and knowledgeable but super nice! 10/10 experience.

We learned of the Tour du Mont Blanc a bit late in the season and there are so many details necessary to planning your hike that we were at a loss. Fortunately, we found Mags and booked a consultation. She helped us plan our trip and tailor it to our time constraints (we only have 5 days and she helped us pick out the best and most convenient stages), abilities, and personal comfort levels. She helped us get all our details squared away and answered a series of questions via email after our consultation. She was incredibly helpful, patient and friendly. I doubt there’s anyone more knowledgeable about the Tour du Mont Blanc, and I don’t think we’d have been able to plan our trip without her. I highly recommend a consultation to anyone looking to do even part of the hike.

* please note a no show due to time zone confusions can be re-scheduled once, however two no shows will forfeit your zoom call and you will need to pay and book for another session
