... all clients who had been travelling with you admit your deep knowledge of the region and sincere keen interest in the subject ... All our clients agree that treks and peaks are much more then a job for you and for Andean Summits; it's a lifetime passion and a destiny ... From business point of view, all services are impeccable. Every small possible detail is well thought after in advance, pre-trip field research is always done, all essential info is provided well in advance and with great accuracy.

Dear Jose,

I understand from Michael Smith that you are sorting out logistics of the expedition that YRC is planning to make to Bolivia in June and July. I just wanted to drop you a note to wish Andean Summits every success, and to hope that the YRC expedition will go well. It's really good to hear of companies like yours who are working to make it possible for the remoter parts of the world to be exploerd by those who don't wish to follow the well-trodden trails in the Himalayas and Karakorum.
