Gigio was a fantastic guide and extremely graceful!! His knowledge of the mountain was superb and he did a great job making me feel comfortable throughout the ascent. Overall the experience was exactly what I was hoping for thanks to Gigio!



Although last minute, Explore-Share we able to guide me to a company who provided a fantastic guide to achieve our goal of summiting Mont Blanc last week. Good communication and quick responses - they did a great job!



Had a amazing experience with Carlos! He fit lots into a 4 day trip, including multi-pitch rock climbing, mixed climbing, glacier traverse and a 4000m peak. Carlos is well connected in Chamonix and made the trip very easy by taking care of the logistics. He kept me motivated and had a fantastic personality the whole time! Can't wait to climb with him again!



We found Kyriakos to be thorough, professional, even tempered and completely trustworthy. At no point did we notice unnecessary risk or exposure and Kyriakos’s professional manner shone through at all times. We would definately consider using his services again in the future.

Carlos is a fantastic guide - he has over 20 years experience in the mountains and the right attitude: safety first, then enjoyment. His excellent local knowledge of the routes meant we could adapt to the weather and conditions. He also has the mix of being an excellent alpinist but also loving the scenery and wildlife. We had an incredible experience that we will never forget! This 3 day trip is a great option as you have a 'training day' to help acclimatise, refresh skills and come together as a group before your ascent! explore-share is a great platform to connect adventurers with guides and experiences - the chat service allowed us to ask questions first and work out the best dates for us
