Marcel is a great guide. We had a great day with him - both for the places but especially for his company. You can definitely see he loves his job, the places and showing them to people. Aside from being an expert of his own field, he has also been a great travel companion and he had many historical/anecdotical stories to share. Definitely recommended!

Amazing hike in the snow from Hrebienok. Peter was a fantastic guide, super friendly and knowledgeable and took lots of photos/videos for us as memories of the day. Really couldn’t have asked for more and we would recommend everyone visit this beautiful part of the world!

I am not a strong mountain hiker, and need many small breakes during ascending. Peter was very patient and controlling the pace very well. We were relatively lucky with the comfortable weather, and saw both wild life and beautiful High Tatras and Rysy Summit. Peter is very experienced guide and mountain rescuer, he cares these mountains dearly. You will be in good hands hiking with him. I had a wonderful day and would do it again!
