Day hike in the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park, close to Madrid
Very enjoyable trip and hassle-free organisation. Everyone involved went out their way to make sure I had a fantastic time, and personalised the trip according to my interests and needs.
Scrambling in the Sierra de Guadarrama National Park, Day trip from Madrid
Our guide was not Gabriel, but a subcontractor names Luis. He was great! (very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly) and should have gotten 5 stars except that he arrived late to pick us up, and he said he would send pictures but didn\'t. Our scramble at La Pedriza was awesome! Explore Share should maybe get 3 1/2 stars, I found their description of this adventure not accurate. It said we would climb La Pedriza and Penalara (not possible in one day) and no experience was necessary. A beginner hiker would find this challenging, would have to turn back before the real adventure begins, and be disappointed. Scrambling requires an intermediate fitness level. And the picture shown with the advertisement isn\'t what we saw, no jagged peaks, no helmets, no ropes. All things considered it was still a great experience!
La Pedriza half-day geological hike in Manzanares, near Madrid
Pedro was so knowledgeable about the area, and graciously answered all our questions, even those unrelated to the hike. He was very kind in picking us up from Madrid for a small fee. He also took a bunch of photos of my husband and I during the trek, which I really appreciated since those are our only pictures together from our trip to Spain. I\'d definitely recommend Pedro to anyone traveling to Madrid and interested in experiencing nature outside the city.
