The multi-day trek was fantastic with amazing scenery, flora and fauna. Bruno was a superb guide and very knowledgeable of the area. Certainly a holiday I will remember for a long time with some very happy memories!
Liz J (UK), French Alps 2010
Best holiday for years! I appreciated the enthusiastic guides and rest of staff as well. Excellent food and very nice atmosphere overall.
Cecilia O (Sweden), French Alps 2010
We had such a great range of walks each day. The knowledge and humour of the guides was exceptional, and made it an interesting and fun walk each day. I will be highly recommending your company, and will keep an eye on your website for potential future holidays!
Amanda T (Australia), French Alps 2010
A wonderful holiday with wonderfully kind and knowledgeable hosts and guides who made us feel at home and relaxed and ensured we all bonded as a group.
Very importantly for me, [OutBreak Adventure Holidays] try to reduce their environmental footprint as much as possible and deeply respect the natural order of the valley and mountains and the people and animals who live there.
Richard M (UK), French Alps 2010
This trip enabled us to experience far more of local culture than most tourists would, at the same time provide challenging, varied and well-paced walking. Every day was amazing for different reasons!
Margaret F (UK), Morocco 2010
OutBreak has once again provided an amazing vacation experience. I really loved the mix of reverence for nature and appreciation of the people and country of Morocco.
Greg B (USA), Morocco 2010
All the walks were very enjoyable and challenging, we could not have asked for more. We had a fantastic time and would like to thank Valda, Gustav, Bruno and Matt for being wonderful hosts and hope to come back next year!
Evelyn P (UK), French Alps 2010
I can honestly say that my holiday in the French Alps was probably the best holiday experience I have ever had. There is nothing that I wanted to be different. Your staff are lovely, well-organised and knowledgeable. The food was great and the accomodation comfortable.
Jessica B (Australia), French Alps 2009
Thank you both so so much for one of the most amazing weeks of my life. I totally fell in love with Marrakech, the Zat valley and its people and you both made it extra special. Gustav, your boundless enthusiasm and ability to make everything fun transforms every experience into an adventure.
Emma D (UK), Zat Valley - Morocco 2009
As a single holiday maker for the first time, I was genuinely quite anxious about the whole idea of being on my own. I needn't have worried - the team worked hard to ensure that everyone felt welcomed and relaxed from the moment they arrived.
Noel I (UK), French Alps 2009
Warm, knowledgeable, infectiously-enthusiastic guides, great treks.
Tony K (UK), French Alps 2009
I wanted to tell you how wonderful the entire week was. Firstly, you have a great team working with you. Bruno is not just a wonderful man... he's a great walking guide, making sure that every one enjoyed the experience to the fullest. We all came away feeling that not only did we have a great physical experience, but also a great educational experience. His knowledge of the plants/insects/animals/geography/history is very impressive.
Ruth L (Canada), French Pyrenees 2009
An 'ever-to-remember' holiday. The location is of outstanding beauty, not doubt about that; but apart from that the organisation was flawless. The guys in Samoens put their whole heart into making it interesting and enjoyable and somehow manage to accomodate everyones needs and wishes.
Domnita N (UK), French Alps 2009
It was great. Thank you once again for making our holiday so relaxing and enjoyable.
Kathryn M (UK), French Alps 2009
Yet again a wonderful holiday, totally hassle free, high quality food, great accomodation ... loved the holiday experience run on the next one.
Petra B (Ireland), French Alps 2009
Just a short note to say thank you for the weeks trekking from Can Llouquette. I thoroughly enjoyed the week and the beauty of the area. Bruno, Simon and Ashley were great - welcoming, knowledgeable and excellent company.
Peter E (UK), French Pyrenees 2009
It is difficult to say what was the best part of the week, but Gustav enabled us to appreciate the superb wildlife such as seeing a bearded vulture soaring above us, and watching marmots and a big herd of ibex below the ridge we were on. We also had such a laugh as a group as well.
Gillian Paul (UK), French Alps 2009
I would change nothing. I think that outbreak have a great concept, a refreshing personal touch and offer a very good service.
Gareth T (UK), French Pyrenees 2009
Beautiful, peaceful setting, delicious plentiful food. The swimming pool was lovely - and a pleasant surprise to find we could use it in mid October!
Guinevere F (UK), French Pyrenees 2009
Too many superlatives can make feedback appear insincere, but the team really knew their stuff and the activities were excellent throughout.
Noel I (UK), French Alps 2009
We've done a lot of hiking throughout the U.S. and Canada, but if I had to choose one place to go back to it would be Samoens. The drama and grandeur of the scenery is unsurpassed.
Scott R (Canada), French Alps 2009
The holiday really was a fantastic experience. It was a wonderful opportunity to see what I think is probably much more the 'real' Morocco than the majority of tourists encounter.
