Enrico was a terrific guide - super friendly, very knowledgable & a fun guy. He\'s also a good photographer to help capture some pics when you\'re up on the via ferrata! Would recommend him to anyone looking for a guide in the area.

Etienne guided us on a special via Ferrata that was tailored to our needs based on our location in the Dolomites and our experience as beginners. He was very patient and helped us understand how to use the equipment and the best ways to climb the Via Ferrata. It was not too difficult, but definitely not for those who are less fit or afraid of heights. When we reached the top we had a good lunch and he explained he history of the area and of the Ladin culture. He even told us a local folklore. After we were done we decided to stay on the mountain and hike more. Etienne gave us a great recommendation for a trail that brought us to an unforgettable mountain pasture. Overall an experience of a lifetime!
