What people are saying about Renzo



Guide is very safety kind. but we very tired so can't Refugio. very enjoyed Piz Bernina vadnet Pers Thank you nice guiding !



Our guide Renzo went above and beyond! He adapted perfectly to our level of experince and fitness, took us on an amazing scramble around thr mountains, and even took lots of photos and made coffee for us!



A very interesting tour of Piz Bernina with a mixture of snow/glacier and rock climbing. Definitely not easy though and requires a good head for heights. Renzo is a very good guide and has an excellent knowledge of the area and the climbing sections. As a result, we were able to quickly climb the final section from the hut and had the summit all to ourselves.



Snow and weather conditions were poor to say the least, but Renzo was a top guide and the tour we did was a good adventure!



Renzo was a lovely guide. We had a good day out and he was experienced. We would have liked a more calm pace though, some time to sit down, have a snack or a lunch in the fantastic environment. The pace was a bit fast for that.
