What our clients say about us

“I started climbing with MAG a few years ago. I was pretty shocked when the owner and lead guide, Sam, said I was ready for an expedition to Peru to climb 20,000 ft. peaks. He handled all of the logistics from start to finish and nothing was forgotten. Everything was handled professionally and I always felt comfortable. The climbs were incredibly difficult but Sam was always there to offer positive reinforcement to get us through. I would highly recommend a trip like this for anyone wanting to take that next step!”
