A really excellent service provided by Mitja, who sourced the fantastic mountain guide Peter Jeromel. Both provided superb advice and we were able to create a challenging but achievable climb of Triglav in winter conditions.

Mitja, Marko and luka were on their game and adapted to a varied group. I feel they delivered excellent value for money and wouldn't hesitate to book their services again in the julian alps or dolomites. Ben Hooper- Australia.
