Climb Mount Toubkal, 2 days trekking in Morocco

We recently went on a guided trip and it was an absolute dream come true! Our guide, Moustapha, was knowledgeable, friendly and made sure that every aspect of the trip was taken care of. The scenery was breathtaking and the itinerary was well thought out, allowing us to make the most of our time. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for a once in a lifetime experience filled with adventure and memories that will last forever. Thank you for creating such a wonderful adventure!"

Climbing Snowdon peak with a guide

The guide John was amazing and very knowledgeable. Explore Share as the middle man service connecting customers to the guide was absolutely terrible and dismal. I absolutely will never recommend to any of my friends and will not use in the future when I return to Snowdonia.

Ascent to “Cerro Uran” and “Cerro Chirripo”

the uran chirripo trek was a beautiful experience! All organized very well and the guide Armin Liedl is not simply a guide but a man who loves his job, a true professional who talks to you about the history of the place you are going through, about the fauna and flora, a guide who "feels" from the first minutes such as are your skills and cares about the best outcome of the course. My wife and I are thrilled that we managed to complete this trek without difficulty and that's thanks to Armin. A great person who we won't hesitate to contact for a future trek. Pura vida, Paola and Sandro

3-day winter trek in Toubkal, Atlas Mountains

Abdul was a fantastic guide and made the journey very enjoyable. He was very knowledgeable about the area and made sure to keep a pace which was challenging but doable for all participants. Mohamed was an excellent cook as well and I always looked forward to his meals. The area was beautiful and the climb to Mt. Toubkal is certainly unforgettable. I'm very glad I choose this tour, especially at this price.

Malinche, Iztaccihuatl & Pico de Orizaba, Climb the 3 highest peaks in Mexico, 8 days

Great experience, glad I had the opportunity to do this hikes. I was only able to summit one of 3 peaks. One of them Malinche was because the cops didn't let us go up. make sure to start really early so that won't be a problem. The cops stop everyone in bad weather regardless if you have a guide or not. Iztaccihuatl I was able to summit bc the guide Carlos make sure we save our energy for the key areas. Pico de Orizaba it was not possible, because 40 mph winds and snow or hail, the guide make sure we returned safely back to the refuge. If we were able to extend the trip by one day we could have summit, no one summit that day but those that tried the following day had much better success rate. Either way always respect the mountain

2-Day Guided Hike of the Mythical Mount Olympus

Had an amazing trip. The huts were closed due to the snow so we had a day rock climbing in the canyon behind litochoro on the first day (I’m horrendous with heights but Babis kept encouraging me and got me through it) and we submitted skolio on the second day. He made the whole thing so easy and helped make it a great experience

Tuni – Condoriri trek in 5 days

Jaime was a great guide. He was friendly, showed a love for the terrain, and demonstrated clear interest that I have the best possible trek; he asked both before and during the trip which foods I would prefer, provided hot water bottles each night for my sleeping bag, and checked in frequently about my level of acclimatization. I knew I was in great hands.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek from Pokhara (7 days)

We hebben echt genoten van onze trekking naar ABC. Jammer genoeg waren er echter overal problemen met de kamer. We hebben dan expres via een agency geboekt en meer betaald, zodat we zeker een kamer overal zouden krijgen. Dit bleek dan een probleem te zijn, omdat er niets op voorhand was geboekt. Ook hebben we last minute (letterlijk 5 min voor de 1e ontmoeting) een bericht van Hari gekregen dat we een andere guide zouden krijgen. Hierbij kregen we geen uitleg. De nieuwe guide had geen EHBO kit mee en wist ook helemaal niet wat allemaal inbegrepen was in onze boeking. Dit was opzich geen probleem, maar het leek plots allemaal niet meer zo goed georganiseerd als het beloofde te zijn. Ondanks dit hebben we echt wel genoten van onze tocht en zijn we blij dat we het gedaan hebben.

Mount Olympus hike to the top of Greece, 2 days

Travelled with Akis to Mount Olympus. It was not an easy crowd. We were a family of six with four children aging 5, 9, 12 and 14. Akis was amazing. The hike was not trivial for such a group. Akis showed confidence and great patience setting the pace and walking us literally through it. He knows every rock and tree on the trail and was fully available for all of our needs including changing the route to meet our needs. We felt totally safe and secure with his stories of the Greek Gods adding to the experience. We are all already planning our next trip to the pick with Akis.

Babis made the whole trip very smooth and he met us at our hotel. We actually went up Mount Olympus with his colleague Stelios, who was an incredible guide. Stelios was very knowledgeable and made the trip incredibly smooth. I am very afraid of heights, but was able to summit Mytikas (to my surprise) with the guidance of Stelios. I cannot thank Babis and Stelios enough for all their help that made this an unforgettable trip! Would highly recommend. They are really the best of the best!

Mount Olympus Semi Guided Climb from Hut to Summit

Stavros was a fantastic guide, extremely professional, informative, and calm in the face of quite terrifying and unexpected weather. We had a very pleasant ascent from the hut, starting half-past seven. Stavros was great about adjusting the pace for my comfort and he had a lot of deep knowledge about the nature in the surrounding area, some of the more obscure myths surrounding the mountain, as well as different routes I would like to explore in future! We were hit by an unexpected late-morning hailstorm on the descent; without Stavros' calm energy, I would surely have panicked. We got down quickly and safely; I was totally unscathed, with another good story to tell. Stavros prioritised my safety over protecting his phone, which suffered water damage. I hope the next trip was less eventful! I highly recommend the semi-guided climb; you can take your time below tree-line on the way to the hut, but I wouldn't have felt safe on the last exposed and technical section without an experienced professional.

Mount Olympus, 3-day guided hiking tour in Greece

With the support of Dimitris and his assistant Ismini, we were able to conquer two peaks. I appreciate much their experiences and kindness. 5 Star guides. The On Day 1, they picked me up at the hotel in Litochoro at 9:00, then Dimitris has checked my belongings and purchased extra bottle of water. I borrowed a helmet, harness and headlamp . I should have taken my own headlamp(light). He drove to Gortsia and park there. We started toward the first ref. Petrostouga. We took a short rest around 11:00, then we continued to the first peak, Skourta. I was able to keep my body warm, to avoid to be cold, by switching between fleece, wool underwear and a rain coat that also provided wind protection. Along the way, I learnt a lot about vegetation, trail safety, and how to climb efficiently from Dimitoris. Soon after walking on the beautiful ridge, we have faced a bit steep rocky trail, then we were on the Plateau. We have stayed our base ref. G. Apostolidis. As Dimitris had taught me beforehand, I did not need a sleeping bag; just a liner was sufficient. Next morning, we woke up at around 6:30, then we had breakfast and went to the highest peak, Mitikas. I proceeded between the two of them and when I reached the bolt for protection, I was taught to switch the carabiner of the lifeline to my back. Half an hour's climb up a slightly steeper trail and we were at the top. At the second summit, Stefani, we only stayed for about a minute due to bad weather at the top, but we did feel a sense of achievement. Aiming to descend after 5:00 pm that day, I quickly returned to the base refuge, picked up my gear and decided to head for Prionia, another trailhead, this time via Spilios Agapitos. It seemed quite long, but somehow my knees held out and we reached the trailhead almost on schedule at 17:30 h. We were able to hitch a bus that had taken another group up to Gortsia. He was right that I was a very average climber, and the difficulty level was just right. However, it would be a bit difficult to summit safely without a guide. And perfect weather was also helped me. The original itinerary was for three days, but a week before, I was informed that it would be two days due to the guide's availability, and he asked if he could compensate by climbing the second highest summit, Stefani, as well. Unfortunately, the weather on the two summits was bad and I honestly don't know if this would have compensated for the three-day trekking, but the tour was satisfactory and I gave it five stars. If the customer didn’t have enough toughness, or weather was not perfect, it would be difficult to complete all the way including two peaks within two day. The website was also okay, but the original schedule was still unclear for me. The preferable belongings (differ from the seasons), route map, and itinerary should be clearly written.

Pasochoa Hiking tour in Ecuador

Edgar did not host this trip but Ivan (at least this is what i understood) did. The reason I am not adding more starts is mostly because the guide did not speak English very well what made it a long and rather silent day. The weather did not cooperate which pf course is something out.of the guides control. But rain made it harder to descend and the guide did not pay enough attention to me. Therefore I ended up in the mud above my ankles and the last part of the hike he was more then a 100 meters ahead of me and did not look back once. He tried to make it work, especially with the driving but overall it definitely could be better

Cerro Chirripo guided ascent in 4 days

The initial contact via the internet portal explore share was somewhat unusual and automated. Certainly adapted to Zrit, but impersonal ä, especially if you were planning on the assumption of an individual trip. However, one was quickly in contact with Armin, the local travel organiser. From then on, the planning was perfect and very personal. Everything worked out perfectly. From the overnight stay in San José bus to the transfer or overnight stay at the starting point. Armin could not accompany us, instead Wilson a local led us up the Cerre Cirripó. He was an extraordinarily friendly guide with proven knowledge of flora and fauna, especially the local birdlife. All in all, an excellent trip with impressive scenery and unforgettable experiences.

Romer was amazing. He was very responsive and helpful. He always replied within a few hours (at the most), and was very accommodating when we needed to change things. He even went and paid a deposit at a local hotel to hold our reservation for us. I can't say enough good about Romer. The itinerary of the trip was a bit difficult. It started at a camp that was 13,700 above sea level, and the first day of trekking was 8 hours of hard terrain. Other treks I've done start lower and have a pace of 5-6 hours per day. Also, our guide Fredy was a bit inexperienced. He was a very kind person, but didn't provide much service to our small team.

1-Day Trek to Rysy from the Polish Side

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

1-day Trekking experience in the Dolomites, around Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Drei Zinnen)

Marco was a fantastic guide and great company. The website connecting us to the various hiking options was easy to navigate. Once we chose Marco’s trek, he was very quick to respond to my emails and provided all of the information I requested about the details of the hike and he asked questions to help him provide the perfect hiking experience. Marco was extremely knowledgeable about the history and geology of the environs during our hike around d Tre Cime di Lavaredo. He answered all of our questions and was very engaged with each member of our family. He provided us with a very interesting and fun adventure. Everyone in my family had a wonderful tour with Marco. We all enthusiastically recommend it.

Mount Olympus hike to the top of Greece, 2 days

Trip itself was fantastic, the view on Skala was better than expected. On the other hand Akis (our guide) was not what we expected - he was most of the time on his phone during the hike and was not very interested in making this trip nice for us. He barely spoke to us and was going around 100m ahead of us most of the time and since he was on his phone most of the time he didn't bother with us. We expected a friendly guide which will say few things about mountain and make this nice trip for us but we definitely didn't get this. My girlfriend had issue with ligament and he didn't even bother to ask how is she, he kept distance and didn't offer any help. We couldn't even get a 'good morning' from him which looked really weird to other hikers as well, since even they asked what is wrong with our guide and why does he act like that. The only reason i am giving him 2/5 stars is because he set good pace for us. Would not recommend hiring this guide - if you want a friendly person which will guide, help and make trip memorable for you - you won't get that with him

Cveto is an exceptionally amazing guide with decades of experience and was an absolute pleasure to be around. During the trip, my legs cramped up to the point of barely being able to walk. However, with Cveto's attentiveness and patience, we were able to make it to the top and back down without any issues. Having Cveto on this climb was highly vital for my trip and it would be a mistake to not have him accompany yours. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Akis was phenomenal. He was very attentive and informative through the whole experience. He even gave me ideas of other areas to explore on my own in other parts of Greece during the rest of my trip. I appreciated that fact that he fed off of me in terms of conversation, rather than trying to lead unnecessary chit chat. I prefer to hike mostly in silence and really enjoy my surroundings. He did make sure that I was comfortable with the pace regularly and also made sure to make me stop for rest and hydration often, even when I didn’t think I needed it (trust me, you need it). It was a once in a lifetime experience, and Akis made sure that it was exceptional!

Trekking the “Huayhuash Circuit” in Peru in 10 days

We had such an amazing time on this Trek! From the beginning to the end we had wonderful service through “Wild Huayhuash - Tomas Operator”. It is an amazing, beautiful, take your breath away hike. The guides are knowledgeable, kind, and extremely helpful. We had guide/cook Rosmel, guide Angel, operators Edgar and Tomas. Rosmel made us food every day(breakfast, lunch, snacks (popcorn), and dinner), woke us up to a fresh cup of tea every morning in our tent, and guides us through the first few days of our hike. He was like Superman carrying our lunch on his back every day of the trek (think heavy food in pots, with juice). Angel was the guide the rest of the way through the trek and was also very kind and professional. He was funny, paced us well through the hard sections, and let us have breaks whenever we needed. Both Rosmel & Angel were always working to get us to the best viewpoints, and best camping spots first, before the other groups. They also both helped when I had an asthma attack during the trek. From the operator side, Tomas and Edgar were amazing. Going through all the information we would need, allowing us to leave extra things in their office, allowing us to rest and shower in one of their rooms at no extra charge when we got back from the trek, and Edgar helped us find a map of Huayhuash so we could document our journey when we got back (finding a map of Huayhuash in Huaraz was not easy). This was a well put together group, and always seemed to be one step ahead of the other Huayhuash trekking groups. I highly recommend!

He was incredibly nice to drive us to the mountains and back our Airbnb (only around 1.5 hours into the mountain) and the hike that we settled on was perfect - we saw multiple groups of ibexes and chamois, took in the wonderful Alps scenery and ended our hike at a beautiful alpine lake. I can’t recommend the experience more since it added so much to our trip in the Riviera, it was a truly differentiated experience. Would definitely be back again.

Trekking Cerro Huemul loop, El Chalten

Everything about this trip was really great. Firstly explore-share was extremely helpful, really responsive. We felt really supported making all the arrangements from Netherlands to Argentina. Thanks for the team for that! In terms of the trip -- this was one of the most special trips we ever had. Huemel circuit is was very special. You start day1 in Patagonian forests and slowly ascend to the more rugged, stoney views of the circuit until you end up in the glaciers (and walk on them!) in day 2. Day 2 is slightly challenging due to the long ascend and walk until the camp. But without being very experienced we were able to do it (also thanks to our amazing guide Luis). We camped in an area only by ourselves, where it snowed overnight, which added to the majestic beauty of the whole trip. Day 3 mainly was descending to the 3rd camp area next to Viedma lake. This was also slightly challenging given the very steep descend in the forest, but despite the challenge it was fun, and was filled with great views. The reward is big, where Viedma lake is awaiting with glacier pieces floating on the lake just in front of you (and sometimes letting go some of it’s pieces). It’s a mesmerising area. And day 4 is going back to the start through next to the lakes, hares and guanakos. slightly easier trek but very peaceful, a nice goodbye to the circuit. We were picked up by a car at the end, arranged by Merlin/Luis. In all days, we were flabbergasted by the ruggedness and beauty of Patagonian mountains, glaciers, forests, lakes and everything we've seen. We were mainly alone in the circuit -- at least in the direction we were doing there was no one else with us. In that sense it was extra special. Our guide Luis was one of the main reasons for why this trip was so special. Very experienced and friendly -- made us feel really comfortable in what we were doing through his guidance on technical moves (e.g. in traverses, when we are descending etc). Also very experienced in the area, knew the circuit step by step - gave us a lot of information on the story of the geography not just like a guide but like a scientist almost (he was full of knowledge for this space). It was obvious that he really loves these lands and mountains, it was great to experience this route with him. I never write reviews, but this was a great trip on all levels, and want to make sure anyone who sees the review doesn’t doubt and just goes for it. Thank you Luis, Merlin and explore share - for your friendliness, professionalism and love of nature. You definitely added an incredible memory to our minds. I highly recommend everyone to experience Huemel Circuit with Luis and Merlin. Gulcin and Sebastiaan

This whole experience was one of ease and adventure. Armin kept great communication through the booking/permit process. Once at the Hotel Pelicano, I was well taken care of. The accommodations were amazing and the food, delicious!! I feel extremely grateful for my guide, Wilson, who grew up and lives here. His knowledge of the area added a great value to my experience. He seems to have a passion for birds and continuously stopped to listen and identify the bird song and then educate me. I enjoyed this very much. I came to love the sound of the black-faced solitaire. Often, my head was down, watching my feet and if not for Wilson pointing things out I may have missed a lot. What an adventure! I highly recommend this trek!! Thank you so much Armin & Wilson❤️

Cerro Chirripo guided ascent in 4 days

This was by far the most strenuous trek I have ever attempted, but thanks to Armin’s leadership and encouragement I was able to rise to the challenge. Make no mistake, this one is hard - especially the 2nd day (12 hour hike from Paso de los Indios to Uran, Chirripo and ending at Crestones base camp). The day starts out in the dark and freezing cold and there are limited opportunities to replenish food and water. This is not a problem as long as you are prepared (read the itinerary closely and ask as many questions in advance as you need to understand what to expect). In spite of any technical difficulty and physical discomfort, I 100% recommend this hike. The scenery was breathtaking and the opportunity to hike in peace and solitude amongst the highest points of land was truly amazing. Thank you Armin and Explore-Share for making this happen.

Malinche, Iztaccihuatl & Pico de Orizaba, Climb the 3 highest peaks in Mexico, 8 days

The guides on Malinche and Orizaba were very good. But there was a big problem on Iztaccihuatl. I said to each of the guides that I had there that I wasn't bothered about seeing the sunrise from the top, and would it be possible to start a bit later than the usual 1am? They both agreed that it was, one saying that the reason for leaving so early was that normally they needed to take clients back to Mexico City after the climb, and in my case that wasn't necessary as I would stay at the visitor's centre. So in the end we left the visitor's centre at 4:30am. When we got to a foresummit of Iztaccihuatl at 11am, my guide said that we had left very late, and would have to turn back. So we never reached the top, to my great annoyance. In retrospect the best option would have been to have spent one night at the refuge at 4700m before going to the top, but this was never really offered as a possibility.

We had a wonderful time with our guide Dimitris. He is a very experienced mountain climber. Although we were unexperienced, he led us through the breathtaking Olympus without any problems. During the climb he told us many stories. It was an unforgettable experience and we couldn't wish for a better guide!

Malinche, Iztaccihuatl & Pico de Orizaba, Climb the 3 highest peaks in Mexico, 8 days

The incredible human being known as Bernardo aka Bernie will be your guide for this once in a lifetime experience and I promise you it will be one of the best decisions you ever make! Myself and 2 other friends did this 8 day hiking tour and Bernie was the perfect guide - not only did he sort out 100% of the logistics for this trip (food, lodging, extra equipment that we didn't have, driving to and from each mountain, etc) he was extremely flexible when a couple of us got food poisoning (not his fault) and had to re-arrange certain dates. He knows the area really well and obviously can climb these mountains in his sleep so he was able to help us navigate any headaches or high altitude issues and he even ran to the store for us to pick up some paracetamol and pepto bismol one day. The mountains are difficult but the itinerary that Bernie has provided means you have the best possible chance at summiting all 3 peaks. Highly recommend this tour and thank you Bernie for an excellent experience in Mexico!

Mount Olympus, 3-day guided hiking tour in Greece

First off, wow. Words can't describe the experience that I had on that mountain. Dimitris literally changed my life. I've been an avid hiker for many years, but when I travel to a new country I like to have a guide at first to teach me the lay of the land. He went above and beyond to teach me. I learned how to use pulls, this alone is going to change my life. Ha I can't believe I've been hiking all this time and never used them. Secondly, I was very bummed that we couldn't summit due to weather, but he made it OK, with showing me more hikes and showing me trails that weren't crowded with tourists. I love local trails. Finally, I truly feel like I made a friend at the end of all this! He didn't make me feel like a paying customer, I had a grand time drinking at the refuge and hiking on that mountain. I will definitely come back to bag that peak in the summer time soon to come. Thank you!!!

10-day Cordillera Huayhuash guided trek

Our guide communicated poorly. He requested to meet the day before the trek and then gave us no information and did not respond to our messages for the entire day (12 hours). When he finally responded late the night before the trek we were told to meet with another random person in a public square. The next morning we learned that we had a different guide and that we were on an 8 person tour, not the 2 person tour we had booked and paid extra for. The tour did not have enough food to feed all 8 of us. Our tents leaked in the rain. There were countless other issues. We contacted explore share with our complaints and received no response. This was easily the worst organized tour I have been on in my entire life.

Slovak Paradise National Park, 1 day hiking in Sucha Bela gorge

If you find yourself in Slovakia do not miss an opportunity for a hike with Marcel in Paradise National Park. He is an amazing guide, and my hike with him was a definite highlight of my almost two week vacation in three countries. He is very experienced and knowledgeable, watched over me, and kept us moving at a comfortable pace with opportunities for breaks in between. He also speaks excellent English, and always responded promptly and was in touch frequently before the trip which gave me peace of mind. He also took wonderful pictures of me and surroundings during the hike which are such fun memories to have to look back on. Again, DO NOT MISS an opportunity for a hike in Slovakia with Marcel!!

This was our second hike with Fabric who is a great guide. He was born and raised in the area and is completely knowledgeable about the nature and history of the coastal cities and the park. The day that we hiked, was cloudy and cool at the higher elevations so he selected alternate routes that provided us with spectacular views of the mountain valleys that make up the park as well as a tour of Sospel a fascinating village that was part of the salt trade. The scenery is definitely worth the hike and Fabrice is a great guide and a pleasure to be with.

The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, for which I had no previous experience and which were nonetheless perfectly comfortable and fun, entirely thanks to him. He constantly adapted the routes to my level and the weather conditions, checked in on me and discussed the options for the next days with me. He is also a very nice person and it was a pleasure to talk to and learn from him. Thank you very much, Uroš!

Alfredo was intelligent, hard working, a bundle of energy, patient, caring, informative, and entertaining. He is one of the best guides I have seen with a perfect set of skills. My only negative would be that the quality of the camp gear (chairs, dining tent) were worn and should be replaced. The food was sub par and a bit disappointing. The soup was good, the desserts appropriate for the conditions, the hot chocolate appreciated. The porters were kind, hard working and helpful

Climbing a mountain is far from being an easy thing to do. I fell extremely lucky to choose Babis Marinidis as my guide to hide the mount of Olympus. Babis gathers all the qualities of a professional international mountain guide. Not only he motivates you to encounter your physical difficulties, but also your mental challenges in order to drive you to the edge. He is very clear with an analytic brief which summarizes what will happen, what to expect, verifying the trail conditions and forecast, respecting your pace. I trust him and I had the best experience of my life, hence I can highly recommend him.

You not only gave me what I asked for but also what I didn't know to ask for - including a lovely spot for lunch on the Sacred Valley tour and seats on the correct side of the train, when we traveled during daylight.  Thank you.

A truly great guide Marcel Kubinsky, helpful and patient, he was prepared for different situations throughout the climb. Nice interlocutor, we spent the whole time talking about mountains, life at the mountains, mountaineering etc. We are happy about this climb.

1-day Hiking Fenestre Lake and Pass in Mercantour National Park

We had an amazing trip, we wanted to explore the Mercantour region, reconnect with nature, and spend quality time as a couple. Fabrice understood the brief, was clear in his guidelines to prepare the trip, proposed different options, and, ultimately, adapted the hikes on a day to day basis based on the weather. For example, instead of having us hike all day in the mountains in pouring rain on the first day, he adapted the program and took us for a hike all around Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat along the riviera coast. The hikes were stunning, especially at this time of the year (fall) with amazing lights and colors. We highly recommend Fabrice as a guide, he is very knowledgeable on the fauna&flora, local history, on wolves. He also initiated us to some key principles of Nordic walking and mindful walking. Thanks Explore & Share team for connecting us. We definitely will do it again and recommend to friends.

Pyrenees day hike from Barcelona

I was a bit hesitate to book with explore-share as I have never heard of it and am a women traveling alone looking for a hike to do in another country. I am elated I booked with Pere on a full day hike in the Pyreneess. Pere was very nice, funny and professional- he had lots of info on history, culture and of course everything mountainside. He brought snacks and bought coffee which was unexpected but very appreciated- he provided transportation & had lots of extra gear too! He was very good at judging my skill level and pushed me just enough as far as pacing and trail difficulty. I am so lucky to have chosen Pere as a guide! Internally it was a physically and mentally challenging hike; I would not of made it to the top if I was alone. If anyone is hesitating on which guide to pick I would say to look no further and go with Pere. It was the highlight of my trip to Barcelona and will remember it for years to come when looking for extra motivation & momentum on my next hikes.

Mount Olympus, Greece 3 Day Guided Hiking Tour

I think that Zhivko is absolutely brilliant in his role: always providing professional insight and mental support. I am sure I would have never made it to the top had I not been assisted by an experienced guide. Zhivko was very mindful throughout the entire duration of the challenge - e.g. advising on proper way of stepping, breathing, clothing etc. I would like to emphasise not only his great knowledge of practicalities related to hiking and climbing, but also fantastic psychological and social skills, showing respect to both: the environment and fellow hikers/ climbers. I've received a feedback following the completion of my 'mission' which will surely help me in the future. It's apparent that Zhivko loves what he is doing for living and he does what he loves rather than simply earning money. Absolutely fabulous experience!

We had a fabulous and unforgettable hike in the Pyrenees with Pere. He is a very knowledgable, safety conscious and experienced guide. He had water, snacks, and gear for us and took some really great pictures during the day which he shared with us. We also made a short stop before our hike for coffee and a snack as he went over the hike we would be taking and showed us a map of the trail and area, which was really nice for orienting us. This is a hike not to be missed, and I would highly recommend going with Explore-Share and not on your own unless you are very familiar with the trails and area.

We chose a relatively tough hike (8hrs, 1,700m elevation gain) but Dean made sure we completed it safely and at a good pace. He also took photos throughout so we could concentrate on the hiking and shared them with us later. He was also good company on the hike. I would thoroughly recommend his services.

He was extremely professional, helpful, kind and knowledgeable, not just about hiking but the area and Bosnian history.

3-day hut-to-hut hike in the Julian Alps

We (me, my husband and two teenage sons) went on the 3-day hut to hut hike. The whole experience was exceptional. When planning our trip communication with Domen and Anja was always, prompt, friendly and informative. Our guide was Aljaz. He made sure we were comfortable and informed and having a great time. He was always positive and interesting and did a fantastic job of being there when we needed him and giving us space for family time too. He went out of his way to connect with my son, which made it an especially memorable experience for him. A certain level of fitness is required, they say this in the description - I wouldn't disregard this. I sort of thought I was fit but I had to push myself. That wasn't really hard though, because for inspiration all you have to do is look around; it's always beautiful - always, everywhere - from the time you step out of the van. And of course the challenge makes you feel like you've accomplished something. If you are considering this adventure, don't let anything stop you.

Highly experienced and skilled, I did not have a slight slip in confidence along the way, despite weather conditions being far from ideal with rain and fairly high winds - I should mention that I really appreciated he was keen to take me up there in this weather (of course maintaining the flexibility to turn around at any point if the route could potentially become unsafe, but his judgement was just spot on). He also explains everything along the way, gives tips and is fun to be around. 5 stars, I wouldn't hestitate to book him again.

Uncertain of what we’d be facing, Scott expertly assessed our ability during the first part of the hike and enthusiastically confirmed that we could handle the trip up the back. Knowledgeable about about the area, geology and flora, Scott was an excellent guide and fun to spend the day with.

Joaquin is an excellent guide, and will not only take you to you destination, but also teach you a lot about the geography and history around Aconcagua and the area around. The view of Aconcagua is better by the entrance to the park, but the trip up to Confluencia is worth the trouble if you are staying in Mendoza (or nearby, I travelled from Chile just for this hike). Depending on your fitness level, Joaquin can find a hike that will suit you and give you an experience of the Andes mountains that you wont get anywhere else.

Recientemente fui guiado en el circuito de Cerro Huemul por Luis, quien era un guía muy experimentado, experto y profesional. Ayudó con los 2 cruces de tirolesa, la parte de la caminata que requería caminar sobre el glaciar, y significó que nunca tuve dudas sobre dónde llevaba el sendero. Merlin organizó a la perfección toda la comida, el equipo y la transferencia de retorno desde el final del camino. Debido a que toda la experiencia transcurrió tan bien, y Luis hizo que mi caminata fuera tan cómoda y agradable, definitivamente recomendaría esta compañía. El sendero en sí era hermoso, con muchas vistas impresionantes y estoy muy contento de haberlo experimentado. Entre los puntos destacados se encuentran los Campos de Hielo de la Patagonia Sur después de escalar sobre Windy Pass, así como los cóndores al otro lado del paso Huemul y las vistas desde el último campamento.

Mount Olympus hike to the top of Greece, 2 days

My trip to Olympus turned out to be a huge disappointment. Not only because we couldn't go to the summit due to bad weather (too much wind), more because the guide Akis lacked communication and social skills. We went with a big group (9). Akis is really a professional when it comes to hiking and knows what he's doing. But his communication in general and towards me I didn't like. I also want a guide that explains stuff about the nature, the mountain and a guide that brings some positive vibes. I didn't feel included at all and I felt like he didn't like me or something. Mostly talked in Greek language and I had to ask for translation a lot. Luckily the group I was with were really friendly and translated some things for me. Besides this he could have been more open that it's a big possibility we wouldn't go to the top because of the wind. That would've saved some disappointment. At the mountain shop before the hike someone told me there's going to be a lot of wind. After asking Akis about it on the way up he said "no, not much wind. The weather will be good" Which I found very strange but maybe this was the language barrier. I've spend 180 euro's for a trip with a guide + 80euro's to rent good gear + 40 euro's to stay at the refuge with food/drinks included. This is a total of 300,- for something I could've easily done by myself (the trip to the refuge is easy). Of course I totally understand that because of too much wind we couldn't go to the top. You can't beat the mountain, it beats you. But as a backup plan we went down and then by car to a small waterfall and a monastery thats being renovated. This crushed my soul and spirit. I strongly recommend that you get part of your money back if you can't reach te summit in stead of this somewhat boring backup plan with zero adrenaline. What was even more f'd up is that after I came back to the mountain shop to bring back my rented clothes I met a couple that did go to the summit. :( So to summarise, my experience was disappointing to say the least and won't recommend Akis as a guide. Service of explore-share is good tho. Cas

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our hike to Mercantour National Park. Fabrice was entertaining and knowledgeable, and helpful. He arranged for our pickup from our hotel at Nice, and even drove us to a village bakery to pack a Provençal sandwich for our picnic at the top of the mountains. Fabrice shared with us a lot of information about the place’s landscape, flora and fauna. And he also showed us how to spot the wildlife and take pictures of the animals. We learnt that he’s also an avid photographer and has extensive experience in nature photography. The highlight of our trip was reaching the crystal clear mountain lake, close to the top of the mountain range, where we also got to cross the border from France into Italy for our picnic. The only regret we have is not being able to spend more time in the park, as the hike took most of the day. We will definitely be interested in doing this again! Thanks for the arrangement!

On short notice, while traveling through Scotland, we booked a Private Guide to Ben Nevis through Explore-Share.com.   We much enjoyed the climb to the summit with our Guide Stuart Mapp; Stuart was the consummate professional and his concern for both our safety and this experience cannot be understated.  His direct knowledge of Ben Nevis’s Route, History, Flora and Stories made this trip the highlight of our 17 days in Scotland and Ireland for us.  Our success to the summit, and back down, was directly supported by Stuart and made it very much more enjoyable .  Thank you again!

3-day hut-to-hut hike in the Julian Alps

This trip was unbelievable. The company itself did a wonderful job working hard to secure us accommodation at this time of year (most huts weren’t open yet). Although difficult at times due to the snow still on the mountain this early in the season (June 18th) our guide Aljaz expertly navigated us around the snow when possible and ensured our safety navigating through the snow when necessary. He completely customized our hiking experience to suit our level adding on extra mountain peaks when possible. He was better than I ever expected. The mountains themselves were gorgeous! I could not recommend this enough!

North Ridge of Tryfan scrambling day in Snowdonia

I had an amazing day scrambling up North Ridge of Tryfan then Bristly Ridge walking to the Glyders and back Y Gribin. I was pushed me out of my comfort zone and I am really glad for it! The place is incredible! I can honestly say that was one of my best days of my life! Thank you! :)

Mercantour National Park, France, Guided Hiking Lakes Adventure

Our excursion with Fabrice was one of the highlights of our trip to France. He was extremely knowledgable about the area and the local history. He even went out of his way to take us to see some local orchids that were in bloom when he learned that we love orchids! We will definitely take another trip with him the next time we find ourselves in the area.

Guided Ascent of Ben Nevis via Tower Ridge

I usually do these things with my Husband, but we currently live in Singapore and I’m back visiting family and didn’t want to miss out. I was doubly anxious because our usual guide was unavailable, but Ken quickly put me at ease. For me that’s about feeling like I have all the information I need, being reassured that I’m making good time and having a few scheduled breaks for snacks etc. We also had a good chat, which made the walk in fly by. A very enjoyable day, I felt safe and comfortable throughout. I hope to be back in the future for more adventures.

Ascent to Nevado del Tolima

I booked a four days trip with Alex to climb Tolima. Alex is a very experienced mountain guide and also very socialable. He knows to ask you the right questions to make your climb successfully and well organised. Unfortunately I got sick and had to break up at 3700 metres. Alex cared the rest of the time about me while I was recovering in the mountain hut and later in the hotel. Alex is also a great doctor not only a excellent mountain guide. Thx for taking care of me. See you soon, Felix

Ascent to Nevado del Tolima

I had a blast! While challenging (both physically and mentally) the guides supported me throughout the entire trip. It was great to make the summit, and get some of the most spectacular views that only Colombia can offer. Totally recommend doing this expedition!!

Guided Ascent of Ben Nevis via Tower Ridge

Private Guiding on the classic Tower Ridge, Ben Nevis North Face On two previous winter trips up Ben Nevis via the CMD route, I had marvelled at the majestic North Face and dreamt of fulfilling a route on it's flanks. This season, Ken helped me fulfil this dream by guiding me on the classic Tower Ridge (IV, 3). The whole experience was absolutely fantastic and Ken made sure to attend to every detail; from communications, equipment provision, weather and condition assessment and climbing advice on route. Ken's professionalism certainly enabled me to push my limits, as I felt completely safe within his guiding ability. I was fortunate to have moderate conditions on the day, and this enabled a fairly rapid and highly enjoyable ascent of the ridge in true Scottish conditions. I will definitely be back for more winter adventures
