Recent accolades from Mexico Volcanoes: "This trip exceeded my expectations. We received first class guides, food, hotels and service. This expedition took me out of my professional environment and in a span of ten days I experienced the culture of Mexico City, Climbed IXTA, visited the classic city of Puebla and then summitted Orizaba. This trip hit on all of my senses; sights/sounds/smells/curiosity/taste and of course the mountains. I cannot recommend it enough." - Eric R.
I want to thank you for an adventure of a lifetime. As always the staff and logistics of Alpine Ascents exceeded my expectations and I couldn't be more satisfied. A while back you mentioned win-win relationships. My win was a rewarding trip to Mt. Everest. AAI's win (and mine too) is my decision to climb Mt. Elbrus and Carstensz Pyramid to complete the seven summits and trek to Machu Picchu and probably Everest base camp with my wife. Thanks again for everything.

AAI delivered again on my expectations. Flawless planning, preparation, logistic and execution. Best guides in the business. Most enjoyable experience on a challenging, long time away from the family trip. I cannot recommend AAI enough to friends, family and anyone who asks my opinion on who to sign up with for life-changing climbing and trekking experiences.
Immensely enjoyed the expedition. It was the most amazing and challenging outdoor experience of my life, so far. The guides were nothing short of excellent. The mix of group gear and supplies was dialed-in perfectly. Good preparation, a strong team, great logistics, and exceptional guiding were the key strengths. No weaknesses come to mind. 2014 Denali Climber
I was very impressed with the program. From the beginning I found it very professional and I found people very responsive. Whether responding to initial inquiries, working out schedules, helping with equipment rentals all the way through the climb I thought everyone was great. Our group of guides were very easy to get along with. They really put us at ease. I truly enjoyed the experience thanks to our great guides. The four of them really made the trip for us. - James O. Rainier Muir Climber.
Excellent. I can't say enough good things. It was very well organized, and in the face of any hiccups there was always a plan, or options, and our guides always ensured we stayed as informed as possible. Their knowledge of the mountain was very good, they were instructive and helpful, and they fostered a great atmosphere. They adjusted the program as needed to suit our situation regarding the weather and acclimatization. And the food was very good too. The strengths would be the great organization, the great guides, good choice of tents, and good food. Overall, it really is an excellent program. - Recent Aconcagua climber.
