Did this hike on a recent winter evening. Keith and his assistant, Jon, were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Our group had a range of experiences with this type of adventure and Keith and Jon were appropriately available to our different needs without ever being intrusive or pushy. Keith is a wealth of knowledge on many topics — history, travel, and culture worldwide — but he was also respectful and interested in others’ opinions as well. It’s clear he loves to learn.

The setting was also beautiful. The stars were shining, the fire and conversation were warm, and we had the mountain to ourselves.

A very pleasant and memorable evening and adventure.
