Unfortunately the weather conditions were not ideal. However the guide really made the very best of our day and offered so much information and advice and training that was pitched perfectly for the small group. I’d definitely recommend this guide.

Andre and tour was amazing. Wish had more snow but Andre took us various places and we had bit of everything. I wish there were more informations about equipments requirements online. As a first timer I didn’t know what I needed to have to join the tour. No mention about skins, bindings apart from ski width. Andre was kind enough to carry my skis. I was embarrassed that didn’t have right equipments. You should mention that these things are required online. Also should inform that it’s not easy to join from Maribel. I still had fantastic time and would like to join again in the future. Thank you

we went for freeride skiing in Les Menuires area - it was a very pleasant trip for me - the guide found us nice powder to ski on, the views were exceptional and I enjoyed it a lot. I would definitely like to come back here to go for more backcountry skiing.

Andre was an outstanding guide and I really enjoyed my glacier adventure! It was really amazing to be in the mountains where we were the only tracks in the snow. In addition to planning a trip that was beautiful and at the perfect difficulty level, he gave me pointers to improve my skiing and backcountry skills. I would definitely book another trip if I come back!

We had a private splitboard tour with Carine. Carine was a great guide and she took us to cool places in Val Thores and Orelle. The freerides were amazing. What a great day trip. We really appreciate flexibility of Maison des Guides who changed the date of our trip to another day because of bad weather on the day when we had booked.

Great service by explore share. Our guide, Fred, gave us a fantastic day. Totally wild adventure that would be impossible on our own. I’m really impressed. Thank you very much.

Our guide Valerie was amazing. She knows the mountain extremely well and was able to take us to one run after another with fresh powder and first tracks. She pushed us hard, but also knew our limits. I highly recommend her! (And she is also an incredible and accomplished snowboarder).

Explore share did very good job in finding a mountain guide group for me in Val Thorens. Smooth and quick communication.
