Vladimir was our guide for summiting of Mount Kazbegi in July, 2019. He was a brilliant guide, as well as champion snow boarder, and I would highly recommend him for anyone planning climbing Kazbegi or Elbrus.
Guide Vano was very good. Proficiency in English would be beneficial. Trip to Mount Kazbek was good, but time schedule for eating would be useful. Because when reaching the top we discovered that we were starving. The food what they offered in the basecamp was awesome. The toilet in the basecamp was terrible. First, it was too far from the main house, because if you had to go at the middle of the night then you had to put all your clothing on. And second, the cleanliness. Someone should keep an eye for it. And at all the basecamp rooms where not that clean.
Giorgi was safety focused and responsible throughout the trip. Although we didn't manage to summit, he clearly explained why it was dangerous to attempt. Good, constant reminders to communicate any discomfort and also observant regarding the client's confirm. Calm and fact oriented decision making at every level, not carried away by emotion. A great guide.
Ilia was a wonderful mountaineering guide :-) I can't wait to climb again with him next year ! JL
Misho is very knowledgeable, encouraging and always puts safety first. He also has great stories and it's very interesting to communicate with him. Besides Kazbegi trip, I also had similarly positive experiences with him on a number of ski touring trips that he guided. Highly recommended!
