Wonderful experience all around!

Florian was very communicative in the days up to our tour, making sure we knew exactly where to meet - and discussing weather cancellation. We postponed the tour by 1 day, due to bad weather. When we met, Florian was well prepared and had the gear ready. He had chosen a difficult route to test our abilities, and when it proved too hard, we quickly went to an easier route which suited our capabilities perfectly.
