"I would have trusted Bronwen with my life if it came to that. She is very good, she has a good head on her shoulders. She is kind and was a great help to me personally with advice and knowledge skills."

AC Guide Bronwen in her happy place on skis

"Bronwen was a superb guide and we feel very fortunate to have had her leading our trip. She was attentive to everyone, very caring, communicated well, planned carefully and maintained a sense of humour throughout. I'm sure all the AC guides are good but it's hard to imagine anyone being better than her. Her leadership was definitely one of the highlights of the whole experience."
