What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



We got a guide for backcountry skiing in Chamonix. The guide was excellent in fulfilling our wishes even though the viability was poor and snow layer thin. Our goals was to in a quiet nature area with not too many people. We ended up with 1000 meter gain and a ski through the forest over a 6 hour period. I was one of my best ski experiences.



Super expérience, merci à Etienne et au temps qui était au rdv!



Good communication and scheduling (including working around some tricky weather). Our guide was great. Would use again. Thanks!



My kids had a fantastic experience and would do it again in a heartbeat. Their guide was amazing and truly loves and loves climbing. HIGHLY recommend him and the company!!! 😎



We had an amazing experience with Leo. Not only did he take us to a great bouldering location, but he really helped with technique to use for our future climbs. He was able to accommodate harder climbs for my husband while making sure I was still able to climb as a beginner. It was also extra special climbing with a local. Would recommend!
