What people are saying about Mountain Climbing |



The trip was great! Sebastian's colleague Ignacio catered it exactly as I have envisioned the trip to be according to my skills and background experience. He was patient and helpful when I struggled in certain moments and he taught me a lot of important safety details on various aspects of the activity, which was what I expected. Overall, a fantastic three days and will definitely return if I have time next year!
