(1) We are all very happy with the experience. Everyone got a real feeling to at least some of the
mountaineering life aspect. (2) Guides were all great and we had a great time + learned quite a bit in a very short time. (3) We got as far as each of us could this time. One of us reached the summit – others had to stop at different stages – but that is all part of the adventure. Overall very happy and definitely see a value in a service like Explore-Share.
Zigmars Rudzitis for Climbing Mount Kazbek in Caucasus
Ilia was a wonderful mountaineering guide 🙂 I can’t wait to climb again with him next year ! JL
We had a marvellous journey with Ilia. He managed everything from airport to airport. As part of being a wonderful guide
with a lot of knowledge about his country and his nature he is also a very kind person to deal with. The Kazbek ascend is a beautiful trip, I recommend to every mountain lover. The region, the mountain, the food and the kindness of the people makes it perfect.
We had the chance to climb Mount Kazbek in Georgia last July under a wonderful weather. It was a real
pleasure to make this tour with Ilia, who was extremely professional, efficient and safety-driven all along the journey. It was also very pleasant to discuss with him to discover more about Georgia and the surroundings
… Although we didn’t achieve what we intended to (due to limited time we had in Georgia and bad weather),
we were happy. It was one of the most amazing experiences we had so far and without a shadow of a doubt, we will come back to complete our mission. We will climb the giant of dreams. If you are looking for an incredible, experienced guide, contact Explore Share and ask for Ilia. He studied mount climbing at university and he certainly knows his stuff.
The trip was great thanks and Ilia was amazing! Such a competent and knowledgeable guide. We actually got caught in
white out blizzard near the summit and he led us out with great confidence. I would highly recommend him as a guide and he was great company to boot!
I spent 4 amazing days with Ilia, the most skilful, experienced, adorable guide. He showed me many different places in
Mtskheta-Mtianeti région. From Snow to rocks, we fully benefit the Caucasus mountains. It was an unforgettable experience !
