Etienne is a great guide with plenty of mountain knowledge and experience. He expertly guided the 4 of us across the Silvretta Alps, through conditions both white-out and blue sky, starting at Ischgl and staying in mountain huts in Austria and Switzerland. His passion for the mountains is evident and we felt very safe in his risk adverse hands. Etienne speaks perfect English and has a good sense of humour, which made for good company at the card table in the evenings. I would recommend him to anyone and look forward to touring again with him next year. Andy

Renato was a fantastic guide and very professional. He was well prepared and very experienced. We got unlucky and got stuck in some very bad weather one day and he did an amazing job of leading our group out of a bad situation. The Silvretta traverse was a great trip - beautiful mountains and very nice huts to spend the nights. I would definitely recommend both Renato and this tour!

Our group of six have just returned from a magical four day tour of the Silvretta Traverse. The sun shone, the snow was superb and all the while Renato led us with a mixture humour, patient consideration and under-stated authority. He taught us the key skills of ski touring, including vital avalanche training and other mountaineering craft. Renato was excellent company throughout and I could not recommend him more highly. A true gent of the mountains.
