Daniel made our two day guided ascent to the summit of Großglockner an incredible and unforgettable experience. Daniel provided us with quality gear and kept us well informed throughout the whole expedition in terms of the route, weather conditions and safety precautions. Daniel’s communication skills were fantastic and he spoke perfect English. We were very thankful that Daniel gave us a second attempt at the summit after having to turn back on our first attempt due to bad weather (Daniel’s judgement of the conditions was great and we had full confidence in his decision to turn back to ensure safety). The summit was absolutely amazing and we had a lot of fun and good laughs with Daniel. We hope we can book Daniel for another trip soon, Danke!!

We had such a great trip! We felt incredibly safe with Mauro even during some intense, crowded moments up on the peak. All in all, we had a great experience!

Firstly, this is the second occasion that we have booked a trip through Explore-Share and both times the process has been brilliant from start to finish. They are helpful, informative and efficient and always easy to contact. Secondly, this is the first time we have used Andreas as a guide and we really couldn't have asked for more. He assisted us in the preparation and logistics of the trip and helped us to get to the starting point, thus avoiding the need for a hire car. The guiding process was fantastic, professional throughout but also friendly and relaxed making it the perfect balance; everyone in our group loved the trip. Brilliant value for money, would not hesitate to book him again. Good stuff!
