What people are saying about this trip



Great Experience and would hire again in a heart beat!



Guillaume was an amazing guide! I’d love to climb with him again if I ever come back!



Great adventure! Sadly les Calanques we’re closed due to fire risk; however, our guide, Guillaume, found another climbing location for us (Saint-Victoire), which was beautiful and fun as well. A note to those from the states — what you climb in the gym ≠ what you climb outside. Make sure to communicate that, otherwise, be ready to be pushed!



Climbing with guide Guillaume was absolutely a highlight of my 2-week Europe vacation. Originally we were planning on climbing in the Calanques, but the park was closed due to wind and fire danger. Guillaume chose another amazing location (Pic de Bretagne) based on my climbing abilities and preferences, and kindly offered train station pick-up and hotel drop off which I appreciated very much. The multi-pitch route we did was not only fun but also the right amount of challenges which I thoroughly enjoyed (I climb regularly in a gym and occasionally outdoor sport routes). The view was fantasitic as well. I also learned a lot from Guillaume about all the good climbings in Southern France (definitely coming back in the future!) The communication from the team (Gauthier) was prompt and clear - highly recommend!



Climbing with Guillaume was much fun. He planned the day after our wishes and took great care. Can recommend!
