The hike organised by Dreampeaks was great. Organisation was seamless, Gabriel picked us up at our hotel in Madrid and drove us to the start of the hike in the Sierra de Gredos. We had three guides with us (one pro, Hugo, and two trainees Magdalena and Jesus) who told us about the nature, mountains and animals. Our guides were super friendly and enjoyable to be around. The hike in itself is perfect for beginners or more advanced walkers and has a lot variety in terms of landscapes, rhythm and intensity. We did a hike over two days and slept in a shelter which was a unique experience. Once up at the mountain shelter, we enjoyed a glass of Spanish cider and played some board games. Although we didn’t pack all necessities, we could just borrow a backpack and sleeping bag from the organisation, which was really convenient. We strongly recommend to book your hike around Madrid with Dreampeaks!

Luis was an incredible guide. Passionate, knowledgeable and supremely flexible, adjusting our plans for the day to maximise the amount of climbing we could do. He was a genuine pleasure to be around and learn from and I would go on another adventure with him again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!!

Hector showed us an amazing time out in La Pedriza, and let us climb to our comfort levels. There was a good variety of difficulties in the climbs where we were at, too. The view of the city below was lovely, and Hector was very friendly the entire time.

Great guide! We actually did La Peidrias after assessing that was up to it. Very Informative! Would recommend it to all.

We highly recommend the service. Our hike and daytrip to Segovia was perfect and we couldn’t have planned it better ourselves. The staff are all welcoming and friendly and it was one of the highlights of our stay in Madrid.

We had a great experience. Hector worked with us to plan a trip that was appropriate to our (non-beginner, non-pro) skill level, and really fun. He even managed to find a place to climb that mitigated the late summer Madrid heat. He was very friendly and helpful and an excellent teacher. We will definitely book again next time we come to Madrid.

This is our first time using ExploreShare and it has been an absolute success. Our guide Danny was incredible. We traveled the world and he is one of the most knowledgeable people I met who truly know2s and appropriates the nature! He is also very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. My wife and i hike at different levels and he was able to cater to both of us during the hike. This trip is perfect for those visiting Madrid and not wanting to rent a car, Danny was able to pick us up and drop us off with no problem at all! I would 100% recommend this to anyone with a well deserved 5-star rating!

Absolutely amazing experience horseback riding on a ranch about 1 hour from Madrid. The horses were incredibly well trained and the staff were able to provide very good technique pointers for both beginner and intermediate riders in multiple languages including English and Spanish. The ride was well catered to the abilities of the group. Gabriel was absolutely amazing in organizing the trip, picking us up and dropping us off in Madrid and catering to some last minute changes we had. I would 100% recommend this tour to anyone who wants to enjoy beautiful nature with good people and horses! I would also 100% recommend DreamPeak Tours and Gabriel for any outdoor activities!

Great experience! They answered so quickly to all my questions, explained everything in detail and the channel of communication was perfect. The experience itself was great! I had a great guide (Luis) who took good care of me, was very patient and supportive as it was my first time rock climbing. He was full of interesting ideas and explanations. Good combination of climbing & hiking in the mountain. I could not recommend enough Explore Share and Dreampeaks 🙏
