What people are saying about E-S Adventure Guides



Paolo made the ski trip a total success in difficult conditions. His knowledge and enthusiasm are worth the investment to get the max from this ski area. Thanks again



Perfect experience with a wonderful guide



We loved our guide and our adventure. She was very accommodating to our needs and nice to be around. I would totally book with explore share again.



We did a 1 day Ferrata with Marica. We've both never climbed a Ferrata before but we are both good hikers. We enjoyed our trip very much and you don't need to be a climber. Marica took good care of us and she is very informative with the local geography and history. We felt very safe with her. If you are traveling near the Dolomite and want to try something a bit out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend doing a ferrata especially with Marica. We did both ferrata ra gusela nuvolau and ferrata-averau. It took us about 6 hours.



I had a truly fantastic experience with Gabriele. He was a very experienced, careful guide. He was very considerate and encouraging and I was very fortunate to have this climbing experience.
