Great climbing day, Damian was a great guide, expensive for one person but worth it, happy that I booked it

Enjoyed it. It was fun. Climbed in lovely area, and it El Chorro was just sunny and not too hot in November. Antonio was very nice indeed. The one complaint I have is that the day was too short - I was picked up at El Chorro just after 9.30am and then we finished for the day just after 2pm. You should probably specify how many hours a full day is to make it fairer for customers booking. I’m not sure if I’d have paid so much in hindsight. Otherwise it was a lovely day.

Excellent guide service. David was really good with the kids (6 and 9 years old) and new how and how much to challenge them. We had a wonderful day.

After the pandemic delayed our planned trip to Spain, along with our climbing day at El Chorro, we lost our money on a few pre-paid tourist activities. Unlike other businesses, Explore Share and our tremendous guide honoured our reservation and the magical day of climbing at El Chorro went off without a hitch! Our guide, Antonio, was communicative, and when we arrived ready to climb, he had everything we needed to ensure we would have a fun and safe outing. There is truly nothing quite like clipping into an anchor and looking out over the sun-seared valley from the cliffs of El Chorro. Antonio was patient with us as we re-found our climbing technique, and instructed us on rope protocol and beta when necessary. I recommend anyone who wants a climbing guide to do it with Explore Share. -Nick
