Climb Mont Blanc
Dream Guides has taken hundreds of clients to the roof of Western Europe, including none other than Sir Richard Branson, Princess Beatrice and Dwaine Chambers. Here is what they had to say:
“I’d recommend Dream Guides 100%. I want to be a Dream Guide!” Sir Richard Branson
"The summit was like a dream. It was so overwhelming i began to cry with joy for making it to this magical world at the top of Europe." Princess Beatrice
"Without Fabio and all the team at Dream Guides in Chamonix I would not have got the job done." Dwain Chambers
We think that this gives us a pretty good understanding of how to give you the best Mont Blanc experience that money can buy.
You might be concerned about how likely you are to make it, after all, climbing Mont Blanc is a large financial and time commitment. A quick word of warning when comparing the “summit rate” of different companies:
Conditions at high altitude are far too dependent on weather and climber fitness for a simple statistic to accurately convey the expertise of a guiding company. A period of bad weather can severely reduce the summit rate of even the best companies. Likewise, if a climber arrives with a poor standard of fitness, the best acclimatisation program cannot guarantee a successful summit bid.
That being said, if the climbing conditions are safe, and you as a climber prepare yourself to an adequate physical standard, our summit rate is 100%.
But we’re more concerned with another number, the percentage of clients that we have kept safe. And that number is 100%.
So, apart from being the choice of celebrities and royalty, and our perfect safety record, what else makes us so sure that we can give you the best possible experience?
This is Kenton Cool, internationally renowned IFMGA mountaineer. Kenton has climbed Mt Everest a world record breaking 11 times, the most of anyone ever. As a director of Dream Guides, Kenton didn’t let us go live with this course until he was sure that it was as close to perfect as it could be.
After handpicking our elite team of guides, Kenton distilled down hundreds of key lessons he learnt from pushing the envelope of human endurance to the absolute limit.
His personal input means that we pack the experience of 11 Everest Summits, and 21 successful expeditions to the greater ranges into making this course a market leader.
Many companies specialise purely in climbing Mont Blanc, and they all have reputable, good courses. But our clients come to us because they know that with our experience in mounting international expeditions, we offer something that other companies cannot.
But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what some of our clients had to say:
In fact, our guiding team has hundreds of years of cumulative experience guiding clients everywhere from Everest to Mont Blanc, from the Andes to Kilimanjaro. That means that when you ask a question, your guide knows the answer.
When the weather changes, your guide has seen it a hundred times before.
When the going gets tough, you guide knows exactly what to say.
Because we know what climbing Mont Blanc means to our clients.
So book on, and let Dream Guides take you on a journey to the highest point in Western Europe.

‘Lars was absolutely brilliant, I would recommend him to anyone. It was great having him there the whole time, he was so confident and competent it really rubbed off on the group and put us all at ease. He appeared to be almost 'acting head guide' and it worked very well - his knowledge and organisation was perfect
