Arete des Cosmiques Guided Ascent

We were unable to climb the Arete des Cosmiques due to rock fall and crevasse issues, but we were able to re-route to the Aiguillie du Marbrees and it turned out to be the best choice given the situation. Had a great experience and Catalin Dobre was excellent in guiding me to a wonderful adventure

1-week Mont Blanc and Gran Paradiso Climb

With the huts on Mont Blanc closed and climbing suspended Peakshunter reworked our trip very quickly and swapped Mont Blanc with a program on Monte Rosa. With K suffering from altitude sickness on GP the Guide was brilliant in slowing the pace for her to make two summits on Monte Rosa and rather than risk problems by going higher on the last day rearranged the programme again and arranged a brilliant day on the Aiguille Marbrees. Thank you!

Mont Blanc 5-day ascent with previous training

We had a fantastic 5 days mountaineering with Kyriakos, despite Gouter Refuge being shut and the Glaciers around Mont Blanc being generally unsafe. The ascent of Gran Paradiso is something I’ll remember for a very long time. A massive thank you to Kyriakos for everything that you taught us.

Climbing Mont Blanc in 5 days with double chance to summit

The trip rating is actually for summiting Gran Paradiso rather than Mont Blanc. Unfortunately the conditions for Mont Blanc were very poor with all the thawing of the permafrost enabling many rock slides. Explore-Share receives a 4 as the instructions for wiring funds were consistently incomplete. The address for Explore-Share that is on file with the bank is required not just the address of the bank.

Carlos was guiding us very well in the mountains and he knew perfectly, what he was doing on rock or on ice. However, the communication was not the easiest and we also did not learn as much as we wanted on our two "training days" - it was mostly teaching through doing rather than showing us new techniques.

6-day Mont Blanc ascent with acclimatization

Dear Sir I am very disappointed to say that I am appalled by your guide and his service. The first 3 days he was excellent and trained us well. Once we got in the mountain everything changed. He didn’t bother to check our bags which ended up with us carrying 8/9 KG’s overweight. Not only till another guide asked him why my bag was so big did he realize that it was a good idea to check. Not very professional. Then instead of been on the mountain 3 nights (as planned) he ran us up and down in 2 nights (3 days). Because of a storm on the second day, we did not summit. The next day the weather was better and if he had stuck to the plan, we would have made it. On summit day he kept shouting at my son (in front of a lot of people) just because my son took a few minutes more to get ready. He shortened our time on the mountain by one night just so he could get too the next client. On the 5th we were supposed to decent from Tette Rousse to the train. He was already with the next couple. At one stage I wanted to walk with 2 poles, he didn’t let me. (many other people used 2 poles) The only thing that interested him was breaking records for going up and down. I felt like I was in army basic training. I am 56 years old. On the last day from Tette Rousse to the train, he ran down so fast that the last 15 minutes on the mountain we were alone (he was at the train station) I trusted him and got scammed. In short, I already have a 4 team trip for next year, but because I cannot trust you or your guide I am forced to use a another company. I will not either be able to recommend your company to others either. Pity, it cost me a lot of money. And I believe you owe me on day fee, as we spent 2 nights on the mountain and not 3. Very disappointing

Climbing Mont Blanc in 5 days

Had a fine trip to Grand Paradiso with guide Elis from Peaks Hunters. The speed were quite high but good to be tested before mont blanc. Elis and us self evaluated that the succesrate to summit MB would be low so eighter an alternative climb or convert the trip for next year at French side. I understood we could convert the tour and get an voucher to be used next year. Contacted Silvia as well day after to comfirm that if we could get a voucer we then would like to cancel. Silvia agreed to send voucer day after. Now to day they unfortunately reply to the cancellation policy (no refund ). A very disappointing turn around, in that case we would ofcause have taken an alternative tour now when we had vacation. Br Jesper Pedersen

3-day Mont Blanc ascent with acclimatization

Had a Wonderful Time in the french alps. However, the down side of it, is that I did not make it to the summit because of the weather, and had to make a U-turn from 4,400m altitude, just 1-2h away from the summit. Now after the first try, I think this can be organised differently so the chance for the summit is twofold or even three fold. How can it be done differently? Acclimatisation can start at Tete Rouse refuge with overnight stay plus two nights at Goutter refuge. If done this way the chance of making it to the Mont Blanc summit increases. You have a bad weather one morning, but you try it from 12noon & have plenty of time as you'll slip at Goutter. If all day has bad weather you try again next morning...

Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route

Unfortunately the guide did not speak English fluently enough for us to have a good constructive dialog. We got more information from listening in on other guides when they informed their clients. It halted our possibility to plan and adjust our trip underway. The dialog between us, Explore-share and PeaksHunter was at times confusing and created some uncertainties regarding responsibility, payments and information. We will in the future try to go directly to a provider instead of going through a third party.

Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route

Hi, good service from explore share and peaks hunter, only some miscommunication on 2 or 3 days program, due to bad communication between you both. The guide was OK, friendly although non very experienced in the practice of pédagogie and communication, especially before couloir des Goûter s, there can be better briefing on security and also in general on the whole expedition. But he can grow by learning some coaching lessons. We did not do the final ascension due to bad weather, a proposal and financial compensation for 2nd attempt would have been welcome.6/10.can do better.

It was a great trip to Mont Blanc with Jon. He knows every stone, all ridges and crevasses - in general a strong, experienced guide. We were the first on the peak on Friday, 17th September, which was an incredible experience. Thanks also to Silvia who organized everything in the background from Aostavalley. Now I know how it feels to be 4810 meters above sea-level.

Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route

As I wrote before (check the emails) there was a problem in communication between the square (client, explore share, peaks hunters and the guide) after I booked the mont blanc in 2 days I thought that it would be a good idea to do also an acclimatization day. I send 2-3 emails to explore share I text in what's app about that and they replied after 2-3 days... The automated text from what's app was disappointing and made me angry because I asked something and I got the reply would you like to ask something... Also by email they asked me about my experience which I had send like 1 month ago about the other trip... Finally I canceled the acclimatization day because of that and I feel sorry for peaks hunters because they have already booked a guide... I am not sure if I would recommend explore share to anyone.... Instead of being cool and relaxed I was feeling nervous checking my phone for an apply during my vocation... NO!

We absolutely had a fantastic trip towards the summit of the Mont Blanc. It is always a bit scary when you’re having a huge challenge and you have to rely to somebody you do not know. Our guide Paolo felt like a friend from the beginning and explained us all the things we did not know about climbing yet. Peakshunter organised everything that well, we just had to be fit and climb to the top. This was for dur

Carlos was a professional and committed guide! We had three great days. He was friendly and guided us savely up to mt blanc. i dont understand the one bad rating carlos got. In my opinion it think it was an bloody amateur which shouldnt have been on mt blanc in the first place. Let me say one thing. If you have no experience on higher mountains and in climbing in general, there is no place for you on mt blanc. train hard, prepare and come with the right expectation!

Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route

My friend and I had a great time summiting Mt Blanc! The guide was great and very supportive and flexible the whole time. A couple of things to consider 1. Make sure you leave at least 1 day available after your trip in case you need to move the dates around, we almost didn't make it due to bad weather but were able to be flexible. There are lots of fun things to do in Chamonix if you don't need the day. 2. The packing list needs some improvement especially to consider females - I would bring an extra layer just in case, thicker socks for summit day, ski goggles, hand warmers, very thick gloves, maybe even a foil blanket. Make sure you bring a thermos not a water bladder as it will freeze (we made this mistake!)

They provided me with all the information I requested and more. Scheduling was clear and everything went as it was planned. My guide, Luigi Gagliardi, is a highly skilled professional. He did a great job taking me to the summit, providing me with all instructions and taking a great care of me. I learnt a lot from him. He is also a great person.

It started good, everything felt great all the way to Tete Rousse Hut were we did sleep. We was not tired after the walk. When we arrived I did pay again for as stayng there even though I did know that I already done it. That whas both me and the guide fault. Because he did tell me to pay and some part of me then though that; if they dont think I have paid, maby I haven't. Insted of showing them the mail I got. Did not get a recipt either so thats 200€ I will never see again I know. At 2 in the night at breakfast I was very exited about moving on. But at the table over guide teld us that it not was a good idea for as to try to take the top. I was very surprised about this. Because everyting felt so good the first day. He told us just because we did not have a reservation at Gouter hut he did not want as to walk down the 80m wall the same day. But way we did not get the chance to show what we can do I wonder? I guess he thought that we had to little experience and he did not want to take the risk. Still I did enjoy the ~24 hours up there and I did learn how to climb mont blanc. We want to try it again but next time we are quite sure we will hike it in 3 days and no guide so we can try it on over ones.

I was not sure what to expect and if I had chosen the right company to attempt the Mont Blanc climb..but I was so satisfied!! Both guides were amazing, in their knowledge but also in their attention to details and particularly to safety and their passion for the mountain sports .I would have followed them to much more difficult climb as i felt so well looked after.they were friendly, funny and caring and compassionate...Great people. I had no real idea as to what the program entailed but i was surprised to see myself doing things i would have never dreamed of or attempted tsuch as the cosmic ridge and ice climbing on the Mer de glace.They also never lost the focus that we wanted to make it to the top of the Mont Blanc and directed their energy towards a successful climb.

3-day Mont Blanc ascent with acclimatization

The guide is friendly and attention to safety. But the arrangement of such time and place is not suitable for us. The first day took the cable car at 1:30 PM and then take the train, stay in Tête Rousse refuge, only spend 5 hours total. And midnight at 2:00 Am started to climb to the summit and straightly back to the train station to catch the train at 5 Pm. It would take 15 hours. The physical strength of the two days was too unbalanced. In fact, I would not have these problems If we stayed in the Gouter refuge on the first day. My husband and I knew that will be a big test for us, but it doesn't mean we want to give up the climb to the summit. The uncomfortable thing is, The guide asked to go back even we didn't see the Mont Blanc. I am very upset, but the guide insists that I don't have a way to resist. My husband and I just slowly walk with disappointment. At 9 Am we arrived at Tête Rousse refuge, and slowly took a meal, slowly descended the mountain, and arrived at the train station at 1 o'clock, not 5 pm. We spent time and money to climb our dream Mountain, but this is the result, very dissatisfied of.

A great and wonderful journey. The contact with Peaks Hunter and their guide Alberto was perfect. Despite no one has been able to reach the summit of Mont Blanc by this way during the last 3 days before our climb, Alberto has succeed to open the way to give us the opportunity to reach the summit. Very versatile, experienced and funny it has been a pleasure to climb the Mont Blanc by this route with Alberto during those two days. Wilder and and less crowded than the Gouter route, if you are well trained and not afraid by some snow/ice walls it is a great adventure, gorgeous landscapes. I recommend to descend by the Goûter Route, a bit longer in distance but shorter in duration and less complex. you will get the chance to see new landscapes and to view from where you have started in the morning. Great journey, thank you Peaks Hunter !

We decided not to attempt the summit due to bad weather a few days before and Mihnea tailored another plan for us which we had a great time doing. Mounteneering was very physically and mentally challenging and I am glad we got to spend time with Mihnea to learn more about techniques so maybe we can practice more and then one day attempt the summit again with Mihnea. This is a great trip!

3-day Mont Blanc ascent from Chamonix

3 days for beginners, 2 days for more experimented .. and depending on the logging, difficulty increases ... should be more visible .. Booking was made personally but not by the organization team Pros: - Andreas’s skill as a guide, impressive - knowledge of the mountain - calm and patience Cons : - preparation required from Tete Rousse vs Goûter .. better information needed - extra costs related to the summit .. food, lift, trains , ....

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

Carlos is a great guy and knowledgable guide! Although we were unable to attempt to summit Mont Blanc due to weather, Carlos still ensured that we had a really fun and interesting trip! I would definitely recommend!

Mont Blanc 2-day climbing ascent

Mont Blanc is a beautiful climb, due to a tight schedule a 2 day was the only option for me and while we summited the mountain it felt like we lucked out with a clear weather window. My guide, Mihnea was great! He looked after all the details and offered guidance with my basic mountaineering skills. I would definitely go climbing with him again and would recommend him to anyone!

Mont Blanc 2-day ascent via the Gouter Route

We had a great trip and it was an epic challenge but we only made it to 4400metres which is 400metres from the summit when we had to turn around as I became sick with altitude and needed to get down safely. So had to abandon our summit attempt. Gigio was a super guide and looked after us very well and got me as far as I could go but in the end the best decision was to come back down to a safe altitude and feel good again   We had an amazing trip and are not deterred from possibly trying it again someday but will look to acclimatise for longer next time   Thanks for organising our fantastic guide and tell him a big thank you from us

This was an incredible experience. Carlos did an amazing job. He was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the climb and was great at getting our shelter and transportation secured all while making sure I was safe and having fun the entire time we were climbing. I couldn’t be more confident to recommend. If you want the adventure of a lifetime, high in the French Alps then climb Mont Blanc with Carlos.

It was a great pleasure to be in the mountains with Claudio. We climbed Mont Blanc, 3 Monts route to the summit, and Gouter route back down. He is professional as a guide, with lots of experience, but he is also a nice companion that it's a pleasure go on excursions with. I highly recommend him and if I could choose a guide for a future trip to Europe he would be my first choice.

I had a brilliant time on my 2 day climbing ascent of Mont Blanc. The guide was great and I really enjoyed the challenge of the climb aswell as the stunning views and scenery. I would recommend this trip to anyone who is thinking of climbing Mont Blanc and feels they have the fitness and ability to do so in limited time and feels they are able enough for the harder Trois Monts route. It truely was an amazing experience!

We were very satisfied with the whole experience. Our guide Matteo was very experienced and taught us a lot during the short trip. He looked after us and made sure that we felt secure even on the most dangerous stages of the ascent and descent. I cannot express enough how happy we were with Matteo's support and guidance. He was very professional during the whole trip and also very jovial and kept us a good company. His knowledge of the mountains and mountaineering is exceptional and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone wishing to climb in the Alps.

We were a bit unlucky with the weather, so we didn't summit. But given the conditions, I think we did the best we could, we've scaled some smaller peaks and practiced our spline skills. Matteo is great guide, highly recommend.

He is also quite responsible and trustable, he made everything well-organized and plan the trip according to the weather condition. We will definitely rate this a 5-star trip with Peakshunter mountain guides.

5-day course to Mont Blanc summit

I think mont blanc and Chamonix is an amazing area to learn climbing skills and would recommend it. My guide was very skilled and took all safety precautions where necessary and had great days in the Alps. A couple of points I need to mention, It isn't made clear what accommodation is required and therefore was trying to book last minute which I found disrupting. The other thing is what your fee covers isn't made clear .I had to pay my guides lift fees which should be included in the fee, so be aware of what's covered before you register.

Our trip to Mont Blanc with Carlos can be summarised with only 1 word - disappointment. I definitely DO NOT recommend for anyone to use Carlos's services based on my experience. He is not serious ,changing our appointments at the last minute ,then yelling and not supporting at all in the mountain,not being prepared with the weather forecast and in general seeming bored and not interested. I did not feel any support from his side and on top of everything he lost us in a snowstorm on our way down. Huge disappointment!

Pere was just a fabulous guide. Technically, a very seasoned climber with wealth of knowledge and experience. His style is super friendly and soft, which makes the day absolutely enjoyable. He is super encouraging yet looks at you every second to make sure you're safe and to give you tips here and there. I'll certainly go for another outdoor activity with him again and I can only highly recommend him!

Quentin is simply an awesome guide. It was one of my first climbing experiences and Quentin helped me feel safe. He is very professional and knows how to manage groups of people. Despite the changes in our project, Quentin always tried to accomodate the best options for the group. His experience and knowledge of the mountain gave confidence to each group member. The fact that he is both physiotherapist and guide is a great advantage, regarding physical preparation and stretching for example. Thanks Quentin! And see you next year on top of the Mont-Blanc!
