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.

It was lovely day. It is one of the best day we had in Italy. Lucia was very friendly and professional. We really liked the hike and she adjusted the hike according to our ability. We saw the open air museum for war . It was interesting. At the end , we had our lunch in the hut . The food was very delicious . I highly recommended this experience. Don’t miss it if you are in Dolomites.

Cinque Torri, Day hike in the Dolomites near Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy

I approached Gauthier about doing a hike with Lucia at the 11th hour and he was quick to respond. They tailored the hike to suit my 10 year old. While the terrain is something we could have navigated on our own - it was fabulous having Lucia as our guide. She knew all the WW1 history of the area, and the geology around how the Dolomites were formed. It was fascinating
