“My climbing and trekking experiences span five decades and encompass all seven continents. I have used Shipton Tours three times and they are, far and away, the best outfitter I have ever dealt with. Their attention to detail and their staff are both outstanding. I just returned from a five week trek/climbing trip to the Biafo Glacier. Everything about the service provided by Shipton Tours was excellent.
