Testimonials & Feedback

It is always an absolute pleasure to receive positive feeback and it reminds us that all the hard work is worth it! The following are a few of our favourite testimonials from the past few years:


“Jon has extensive experience of expeditions globally with a great summit success rate. Having seen Jon in the mountains the overriding impression I get is that of fun, which is the single most important thing that life can bring us. This doesn’t detract from Jon’s drive and determination to climb and explore, but merely adds to it. I’ve spent two seasons on Everest with Jon, we summited the same day in 2013. I struggle to think of a person who I would want to spend more time with in the mountains”

Kenton Cool – IFMGA Mountain Guide & 12 Everest Summits

“Great trek, so pleased we went with Jon after our chance meeting in Nepal. Leading expeditions is not his job, it’s his life, he does it brilliantly & seemingly effortlessly… So if you’re thinking of climbing a mountain then do it, definitely do it. If you can, do it with Mountain Expeditions”

Rob Thomas – Kilimanjaro, Scottish Winter, Elbrus

“I share Jon’s attitude that ‘anything is possible’ and, as a fellow dyslexic, know that those with challenges and barriers to overcome are often some of the most successful people in life. Jon was with me on my recent trek up Mount Kilimanjaro and I’m sure he’ll show the same hunger and determination on his next expeditions – good luck, you can do it!”

Duncan Bannatyne (Dragons Den Star) – Kilimanjaro

“Jon’s professionalism, patience and encouragement made Island Peak a reality for me, and his excellent company also made this an all-round enjoyable experience.”

Lee Godden – Island Peak

“Just back from an absolutely epic couple of days rock climbing in north Wales. Jon did a brilliant job of ensuring my safety, understanding my apprehensions as a first time climber, as well as coaching technical skills. The result of this was that I was able to push myself way beyond what I thought possible.”

Tim Pinnock – Rock Climbing, Snowdonia

“In terms of professionalism Jon is a pure professional with mountain skills, business skills, respect and passion for what he does but also, oh my, what fun we had (type 2 fun tho eh Jon?) and memories created by Jon, Joel and Olly will stay with me and our team forever.”

Linda Wales – 3 Peaks Challenge

“You have the rare ability to balance, a childish (meant in a positive way!) excitement and enthusiasm about a trip you’ve done so many times, and at the same time show excellent leadership when required. Would definitely climb Ama again or join you on another mountain.”

Karin Moe Bojsen – Ama Dablam

“I am still on a high having recently returned from an incredible expedition to Kilimanjaro with Mountain Expeditions. The trek from start to finish was amazing! Everything was well planned and organised providing the ultimate experience. There was great support before, during and after the trek. Jon Gupta’s knowledge and experiences of the mountain put any fears at ease. I couldn’t recommend Mountain Expeditions more highly.”

Fionna Sommerville – Kilimanjaro

Member stories

Many of our team members have been on several expeditions with us – a few have done everything we offer! In many cases members have become good friends and having them return with us for more mountain adventures is always a pleasure.


CASE STUDY: Jon Craig – From Zero to Ama Dablam in 3 years.

“Having been on many of Jon Gupta’s trips I can honestly recommend Mountain Expeditions for your bespoke mountain adventure. Jon himself inspires confidence in his clients and he leads his trips with precision. He is passionate about the outdoors and is experienced and qualified to match.

Jon lives and breaths mountains and it’s infectious. 3 years ago I trekked the mighty Kilimanjaro and it didn’t stop there; having since summited both Elbrus in Russia and Island Peak in the Nepalese Himalaya under his supervision. There’s also countless national challenges and Scottish winters that saw a novice through to becoming an accomplished mountaineer who’s CV peaked with the accomplishment of the majestic Ama Dablam in 2013.

If you want a guide who is well informed, approachable, safe and experienced then you should probably sign up to a highly enjoyable expedition or 3. There’s a reason why many of Jon’s clients often return for their next adventure so book in for your first and start creating those precious memories, friendships and experiences.”
