What people are saying about Backcountry Skiing | Gudauri



We loved the great professional work of our guide Tato, his smile, his big cooperation with the Italian guide and the group. Bravo!



Excellent week! Ilia and his local guide Bequ did a fantastic job.



A day before arrival Ilia appeared to be unavailable. He arranged national certified guide Tato Nadiradze for us. Ilia did not manage to arrange the trip well and much was not clear, also due to change of plans because of the weather after a few days. We were very lucky with Tato who arranged everything well and got the very best out of it for us. We used his Landcruiser to drive where ever we went. Tato is a bery good mountainguide with lots of experience, especially in the Gudauri and Kasbegi area. He is also a good and enthousiastic free-rider. Gudairi hut is a fine hotel.



Bad communication with Explore-share. Did not get respons to my questions. Silence for two weeks even though i requested response. Terrific guide - Lasha.



Extremely professional! Only the best equipment, best helicopters, best avalanche gear, very experienced guides - everything perfect! though this winter was the toughest since ages (too much wind, not enough snow) they found good runs for us for every day!! I can highly recommend it!
