Pere was amazing!! He was so kind and so much fun! We had the best hike with him through the Pyrenees. It was absolutely beautiful, and we loved being able to hike through the snow and getting to see the snow-capped mountains. It was INCREDIBLE.

Pere was great! He was very pleasant and patient with us, as we struggled going up the mountain. Highly recommend!

I had such a fantastic adventure. The scenery was gorgeous and we were the only ones in the park. Ramon was a pleasure and this excursion was everything that I hoped it would be.

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.
