What people are saying about Mariano



A fantastic guide and we really enjoyed the experience



Fantastic winter ascent of Mulhacen together with guide Mariano Frutos in mid-January. Very warm and sunny day and extremely icy on the top but fantastic views all the way to the Moroccan Rif mountains. Few people on the mountain and a lot of Iberian mountain goats. Mariano was excellent and Pablo at Explore-Share made the logistics easy and straightforward as always.



This was such a great day. I'm so glad I booked through Mariano's company!



Was great!



Nice guide - great professional. Nice day-trip. Recommended!
