Multi-pitch rock climbing in Calanques National Park, southern France

I had a fantastic morning in the Calenques with Guillaume. He offered me a pick up from la Ciotat and dropped me off afterwards on town, both not part of the trip I booked! The climb was beautiful, the route challenging but I had excellent guiding/instructions! Will come back for sure! :-)

Multi-pitch rock climbing in Chamonix

Kyriakos was very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and attentive. I really enjoyed having him guide me up the mountain. He was more than willing to share information and answer questions that I had, and he did a good job steering me toward a route that met my personal needs/goals. I couldn’t recommend him more highly!

Half-day sport climbing trip in southern France (Calanques de Marseille, Sainte Baume, Garlaban)

Guide was relatively helpful when planning, but we needed to reschedule due to rain, he stopped responding completely to email or text. Day of the climb, I kept messaging and trying to call him, but he blocked me? Very confusing. I'm sure he's probably a good climbing guide (we never ended up climbing with him), but his responsiveness was pretty unprofessional. We ended up finding some hikes to do in calanques and climbing at the local gym 🤷‍♂️ Guillaume’s answer - “Hello, thank you for your message. I’m sorry that we couldn’t make this outing because of the rain and then your schedule. Know that I didn’t block you but when we are active in the Calanques we don’t necessarily have a network.”

Verdon guided multi-pitch climbing

The whole process has been very smooth considering how unstable the current situation is! Explore-share were in contact proactively ready to assist if I needed them and the team behind the guide were also very helpful. The climbing was very beautiful and the guide knew his stuff, the route was well picked and I was absolutely shattered by the end! Would recommend climbing in Verdon to anyone interested.

Guided climbing tours in the Alps

I went on a three day multi pitch climbing tour with Pere and asked him to teach me the relevant rope and safety skills. It was fantastic! Pere was very knowledgeable, professional and personable. He immediately zeroed in on my skill level and was encouraging throughout the whole experience. I had a wonderful time and felt like my climbing really progressed under his guidance. Highly recommend.

North Faces of the Alps guided 4-day training program

Climbing with Enrico was awesome. He was super easy to be around and picked awesome climbs that are some of the most memorable I have ever done. I would climb with again in a heartbeat. Always made me feel included and it was a great partnership. We climbed a bunch of ice together in Cogne, mostly day trips. The best climb we did was the North Face of the Tour Ronde and a bunch of routes on the east face of Mont Blanc du tacul.

North Faces of the Alps guided 4-day training program

Enrico is a mountaineering expert. I did many tours, summits and expeditions with him over the past 15 years Not only does he know the environment, but he is also technically very proficient, which is very comforting when the going gets tougher. He is a very safe guide, does not take chances as he wants both of us to get back home safely! And he likes to share and explain every decision he makes. Every outing with Enrico is a 5 star experience.

Climbing Day Trip in Calanque de Sormiou Above the Sea

Maxence was absolutely great! Super friendly and knowledgeable. With very little back and forth he was able to plan a perfect climbing day trip for us, including our first multi-pitch climb (and all of this was actually a backup plan, since the area we were going climbing was closed due to high winds). I look forward to going climbing again in Calanque and would not hesitate to book him again!!

Climbing in les Gorges du Verdon

Climbing w Robin in the Gorges Verdon area was a dream come true. Robin is a fun guide to be with. He's very knowledgeable of the routes very safe in his practice and a very strong climber who makes it look easy. We did 2 long multi pitch routes that make me want to come back again and bring my friends.

Guided multi-pitch climbing in the Alps

Jean agreed quickly to do the trip, but then for two weeks did not communicate whatsoever. That was disappointing. After that time, he cancelled the trip. The people at explore-share were very helpful in finding me a replacement guide by the name of Elsa Salmon. She was superb on every level. Kudos to the explore-share team and Elsa for making this great trip happen.

Andre was simply amazing! His communication was excellent. He customized our trip exactly to our specifications. His climbing and guiding skills are elite! The climbing in Les Calanques is out of this world! I have never seen anything so beautiful while climbing! I hope that I have the chance to go back one day. If I do, I will definitely seek out Andre again! He made the trip spectacular! I definitely recommend Andre and climbing in Les Calanques!

ArĂŞte des Cosmiques / Cosmiques ridge

I give Peakshunter Mountain Guides a 5 star Review. I come from America and I was given holiday on short notice so I sent out some climbing inquiries on Explore-Share. Silvia from Peakshunter was the first guide to respond to my request and she was able to coordinate an awesome adventure for two days for me. I went in with no expectations since I don't know that region that well. I relied on their judgement. My guide was Elis and he was phenomenal and patient with me. They answered all my questions prior to the trip and made my experience in the Mont Blanc region unforgettable. I could not be happier with my experience with Peakshunter. Thank you Silvia and Elis!

I've had quite a bit of guided climbing experience. What makes Enrico stand out is the amount of effort he puts into improvement in skills and technique. He's also extremely patient with the difficulties that need to be overcome in the learning process. I learned so much and had a great time.

North Faces of the Alps guided 4-day training program

Getting in contact through explore-share.com with Enrico Bonino, mountain guide, was really a snap. Some time later I got in contact over phone/mail with Enrico. Finally we found a time window in February to go ice climbing for 2 days in Chamonix. 850 km and a night later I found myself on the Italian side of the Mt Blanc in Courmayeur. Enrico took us to the traverse of the Aiguilles d'Entrèves. Not very difficult but perfect to acquaint myself again with granite and mixed climbing after a lapse of ... +20 years. The weather was brilliant, blue skies, sun all over and the scenery was +++, pure enjoyment ! The next day the weather was grey and some snow was forecasted. So Enrico took me to Cogne where we climbed the 7 lengths of Ghost Goully. Not a pure icefall, it has some mixed, more mountain-like, character. After hiking back to the village Enrico took me to his favourite pub where we had a tasty piece of pizza and pastry. A Short trip but just what I needed to get some feeling climbing with crampons and ice axes again. This is definitely asking for more and I'm looking forward to the next trip ! Thank you Enrico, Bruno

Rock climbing in les Calanques, Marseille

The trip with Robin was awesome! I didn't have a car, so he provided transportation to and back from the climbing spots, which is really nice. The weather in Verdon was not good during the trip, so we ended up climbing some beautiful routes in les Calanques and Cap Canaille. Robin knows the area and the routes well, so he selected the ones that was within my ability but also felt challenging. Robin also took a lot of nice photos along the way, introduced and explained the routes/backgrounds, and helped me feel more comfortable climbing multi-pitch routes (this was my first time). I highly recommend this trip to anyone that wants to experience the beauty of south of France from a couple hundreds meters up.

Rock climbing in les Calanques, Marseille

The climb with Robin was amazing. We were a group of 3 and he picked us up at the bus station since we didn't have a car. He took us on the route de Cretes which is beautiful, and then climbed les Calanques. The day was perfect and the view was mesmerizing. At the end, he dropped us off at the city center of Cassis since we luckily had the time to visit it. I would definitely recommend the guide, who watched over us and is friendly, and the route which was so beautiful!

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!

Excellent grimpeur et guide hors pair, nous avons passé des moments magiques en la présence de Romain lors d'une trilogie Alpine dans le massif du Mont-blanc avec à la clef; la célèbre Rébuffat à l'aiguille du midi, la pointe A.rey et la Pointe Lachenal. On a hâte de gravir le Grand Capucin...en sa compagnie.
