Had an absolutely fantastic experience on a 3 day trip of Gran Paradiso. Our guide Christophe Garrigues was incredibly knowledgeable and patient and ensured everyone in our group felt comfortable and confident when on the mountain or using new equipment. Definitely a trip to be repeated with Azimut and hopefully Christophe!

The Guide did not even know I'am on splitboard. Everyone else was on skis, I was the only one on board. Guide has no experience on board, so the daily trips was designed for skiers, not borders. I would like to know which company is responsible putting me in a ski group, Azimut or Explore-Share? If you don't know the difference between what is doable with skis and splitboards, you would not sell trips for splitboarders! In the only day I could enjoy somehow, I did very hard time to stay on my feet on icy steeps, because I should have had a crampon, but I did not have it, because the list of necessary equipment does not mention it. All the skiers had one. The guide anyway did what he could to help me, all the respect for Rafael. But the whole trip was a fuckup for me that way. I really want to know who is responsible!?

Had a great trip. Unfortunately the guide was not fluent in English as written in the description. That is something that could lead to a very tricky situation if there would‘ve been a dangerous situation. The selection of the group by azimut was not the best as at least one person was physically not capable of doing this trip. However, the service by explore-share was great!

Merci beaucoup à Manu et Antoine, nos deux guides, pour cette excellente semaine. Ils ont été aux petits soins et très professionnels: s'assurant que chacun était en sécurité et profitait le plus possible de son séjour, de la montagne et de la bonne neige ;). L'hébergement, à l'hôtel Les Agneaux était aussi fantastique: nourriture faite maison, locale, chambres très confortables et propriétaire encore une fois aux petits soins. C'était top!

I was disappointed. I was slower than the rest of the group reaching Tete Rousse, and the guide discouraged me from going to Gouter. I had a slight ankle sprain the day before which slowed my ascent. I recovered 95% the day after. My complaint: when I decided to go for a second guided attempt, at a slower pace, I received no help in securing a guide, or a reservation at Gouter. The online reservation showed fully booked both for Rousse and Gouter. But I know that there were lots of empty bunks at Rousse, and I suspect the same at Gouter. I received sympathy, but only as a formality. Initially I had sought a single dedicated guide, but I was encouraged to join a group. I did not get a choice.I should have known better, I knew my pace would be a bit slower, but I counted on your support and understanding. I got neither. I was on my own with no help.

Trip was excellent but explore share needs to provide more information, the only reason I knew what was going on is that I was with Azimut on another trip.

I joined this trip 30 Jul - 2 Aug with my friend from Japan. This was third try of mountaineering in foreign countries . The weather was not good, but we were able to stand on the summit. It was amazing experience for us because we have wanted to climb European mountains for a long time. We appreciate our guide and support staffs. Thank you!

It is a great though gruelling adventure that all mountain loving climbers should experience, especially under such wonderful care as that provided by the Damian and his colleagues from guiding team. Thanks to the piece of mind they provide - they look after your safety, food, transport, etc.- you can focus 100% on climbing this beautiful mountain.

Because of conditions we ended up staying in Ostana. It was my first ski touring trip and I really enjoyed it. I learnt a lot and improved as the week went on. I was in a really nice group with a great guide. The accommodation and food were to a high standard. All in all I had a great week and might just do it again next year. Regards, David

the trip did not correspond program description which forced me to leave on the second day, with huge financial losses. the guide checked and confirmed ny capabilities to ski - indeed after it was failed off road asked me to make a decission to give up. When I asked the agency to organize a transfer at least back to the meeting point (from the middle of nowhere) they pretended they can't do it (indeed, it was included to the program...) the worst every trip in my life. And explore and share instead of any invistigation simply did not care.

It was the first time to climb the mountain in foreign country for me. However As I don't like the such a tour which includes all like flight, accomodation etc. That's why I chose the Explore-share. I enjoyed much this tour thanks to friendly and nice guide and also other participants, though we couldn't climb Mont Blanc because of bad weather condition. Finally this tour was well organized with skilled guides. I hope for next chance to climb Mont Blanc.

My experience was better than I could have imagined. I didn't have to worry about anything other than showing up in Oulx with my ski boots! Simon, our guide, was excellent, totally competent, and easy-going. We spent time in the best ski areas in beautiful, small French towns. Our accommodations and food were also top notch. I'd highly recommend Azimut.
