    Thanks to Carlos and explore- share staff:) My experience with booking through explore-share and climbing to Mount Blanc with Carlos were fantastic! He is very easy going and flexible.

    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.
