Our guide, Claire, was very friendly, knowing and responsive and helped us to dive into an outdoor bouldring for the first time - exactly what we were looking for

We are so happy we got the chance to have a guided session at Fontainebleau with the E-S Guide team. They were super helpful and responsive, getting me and my climbing partner set up with a trip with <48 hours turnaround from first contact. We worked with Jèrèmie, who was top notch - he knew the area really well and was able to guide both of us to top multiple routes. He met us where we were at with our climbing ability, and was extremely creative at suggesting alternative beta and helping us through problems. THANK YOU!

Communication with our guide, Claire, was super easy (via WhatsApp). We met her at the arranged meeting place and she showed us a great range of appropriate climbing spots. Her recommendations were exactly as we had requested (beginner and intermediate). Claire was informative, encouraging and patient, and her manner/teaching style really made for an enjoyable and fulfilling experience.‘I couldn’t recommend the service, or Claire, highly enough.

We had an amazing experience at Fontainebleau. Our guide Jeremie was excellent and our kids cannot stop talking about the day and have asked to go back every day since our climbing adventure. Thank you to the explore share team for ensuring we had the perfect trip.

We went to Fontaineblue, south of Paris. Share-explore helped us find a very nice guide, Claire, wich did a very professional work that day with us. I will definitely use them for my next tour! The communication was quick and uncomplicated. I really enjoyed the experience. Cheers

We had a great time during our half day bouldering course with Claire in Fontainebleau. We tried to do it in the summer but unfortunately Gauthier and his team were fully booked. Nevertheless communication was excellent and we knew we would come back to Gauthier in the autumn. He was extremely swift and super friendly in all our exchanges. Thank you for organizing our experience. We look forward to doing a whole day session with you soon. Best, Mei

Scheduled a Bouldering in Fontainebleau for two days in advance. Gauthier was super helpful over whatsapp and could schedule me a session with Claire, a professional climber/boulderer. We had a great time and she showed me many of her favorite problems! Happy to come again and schedule another session with them!

Gauthier arranged for us to meet with Anabelle for our rock climbing experience, and she was a wonderful guide. She was very knowledgeable about bouldering and chose the perfect spot for us to be introduced to Font climbing. Highly recommended!
