Max was an AMAZING guide! He was super knowledgeable and was willing to teach us new climbing techniques. Not only did I have fun climbing outdoors, but I learned how to climb better outside. I highly recommend this trip! You won´t be disappointed!
Cedric is a fantastic guide. He is helpful, friendly, very competent and caring. He made our time in Corsica very enjoyable and we would love to organise another trip with him in the future.
1st class guide. Excellent scramble.
We’ve had the best time with Manu at the Suare crag in Calvi. His professionalism is absolutely top class and made us feel incredibly safe with his professional climbing skills. Most importantly we had a lot of fun. Explore Share is an amazing platform with various activities around the world and I can’t believe I never knew about it until now! I’ve already share this platform with adventurous friends and I am sure I will definitely be using this service again. Well done guys for your efficiency! Love your work!
Manu, was a very friendly and professional guide. As I am fairly new to climbing he picked a good route suitable to my experience. As a result I really enjoyed the trip and felt that I learnt a lot. I would definitely do this trip again and would recommend it to others
The climbing was great at an excellent spot with many routes. Everyone had a lot of fun. Would definitely come again if we had a chance. Many thanks, Andrew
Max took us on an amazing route in the Verdon and we had a fantastic day. He also helped us refreshed our multi-pitching skills so gave us the confidence to do routes ourselves after the guided climb. Thanks!
Had a great time with Max climbing at the Calanques. He picked a good route with lots of ambiance, and did a solid job leading me up it.
Getting in contact through explore-share.com with Enrico Bonino, mountain guide, was really a snap.
Some time later I got in contact over phone/mail with Enrico.
Finally we found a time window in February to go ice climbing for 2 days in Chamonix.
850 km and a night later I found myself on the Italian side of the Mt Blanc in Courmayeur.
Enrico took us to the traverse of the Aiguilles d’Entrèves.
Not very difficult but perfect to acquaint myself again with granite and mixed climbing after a lapse of … +20 years.
The weather was brilliant, blue skies, sun all over and the scenery was +++, pure enjoyment !
The next day the weather was grey and some snow was forecasted.
So Enrico took me to Cogne where we climbed the 7 lengths of Ghost Goully.
Not a pure icefall, it has some mixed, more mountain-like, character.
After hiking back to the village Enrico took me to his favourite pub where we had a tasty piece of pizza and pastry.
A Short trip but just what I needed to get some feeling climbing with crampons and ice axes again.
This is definitely asking for more and I’m looking forward to the next trip !
Thank you Enrico,
Merci Manu pour nous avoir fait partager ta passion de la montagne et de la Corse. Bravo pour ton professionnalisme et pour la qualité de ton équipe.
Me and my dad wanted to book a last minute guided rock climb in the Calanques. We came across Maxence through explore-share and he was very kind as he changed his timetable so that he could take us out at short notice. Me and my dad were a little nervous about rock climbing and Maxence very quickly put us at ease. He was friendly and warm and very encouraging when we were on the rocks. He took us to the most beautiful spot where we were the only ones climbing, and we had an amazing view of the Calanques. He took pictures for us and sent them to us afterwards. He also provided us with all the equipment that we needed and found us suitable routes to climb for our levels. We would recommend Maxence to anyone who wants to find a climbing adventure in the Calanques.
The trip with Robin was awesome! I didn’t have a car, so he provided transportation to and back from the climbing spots, which is really nice. The weather in Verdon was not good during the trip, so we ended up climbing some beautiful routes in les Calanques and Cap Canaille. Robin knows the area and the routes well, so he selected the ones that was within my ability but also felt challenging. Robin also took a lot of nice photos along the way, introduced and explained the routes/backgrounds, and helped me feel more comfortable climbing multi-pitch routes (this was my first time). I highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants to experience the beauty of south of France from a couple hundreds meters up.
I had amazing 2 days climbing in Corsica with Cédric as my guide. Cédric introduced me to Corsican backcountry that he lovingly called his garden: massive towering mountain, emerald waters of roaring streams, beautiful wild flowers.
I highly recommend Cédric to anyone looking for a guide be it Corsica or anywhere else.
I miss this incredible place already and look forward to coming back!
The climb with Robin was amazing. We were a group of 3 and he picked us up at the bus station since we didn’t have a car. He took us on the route de Cretes which is beautiful, and then climbed les Calanques. The day was perfect and the view was mesmerizing. At the end, he dropped us off at the city center of Cassis since we luckily had the time to visit it. I would definitely recommend the guide, who watched over us and is friendly, and the route which was so beautiful!
Romain was a great guide in planning and leading the climbs. He was safe, supportive and did not rush so I could enjoy the climbing. Best of all he took some incredible photos in some precarious positions!
A great day traversing the Drus from the Charpoua hut. No one on the route that day except us. The weather proved excellent. Perfect guiding and very secure climbing with Pere !
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
