Eduard took my husband and I ice climbing for our first time. Eduard took great care of us, had great communication and is a lovely person to spend a day with. He is an expert in the field and it shows! He took care of all the logistics on the trip to make our experience comfortable. The experience exceeded our expectations. We were both able to climb a beautiful waterfall and enjoy the High Tatras.
