Guide Benny served us very well. (We never met Renato. ) she kept us safe and gave us all the adventure we could handle. She also gave us a a lift to our Rifugio at day’s end—beyond the call of duty. We highly recommend her.

1-day Via Ferrata in the Dolomites – Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy

Robert was an incredible guide for our via ferrata experience! It was by far, our favorite day on our two week vacation in Italy. Robert is very experienced, and we felt completely safe and comfortable for the whole hike. We also left our hike with some incredible restaurant and hotel recommendations from him! If we make it back to the dolomites one day, we will definitely be booking another trip with Robert!

1-day via ferrata on Punta Anna, near Cortina d’Ampezzo

Our actual guide -benny was great and easy to communicate with. Renato Bernard however did not handle this company well. Complete disservice. The weather was 90% thunderstorms on the day we were supposed to go, our hotel highly discouraged it (as he used to be a guide) so we had asked for a different date. He gave us another guides number we arranged to go on Saturday instead with him due to the other guide not being available. Then last minute (after the ferrata trek was supposed to start) I get an email from Renato stating that we had to go with our original guide and because she would cancel /didn’t have any other dates available we would lose our money. He then did not return any further emails or correspondence from us. Just left us in the dirt. EVEN WHEN THERE WAS A GUIDE readily available to take us the next day under better weather conditions. My recommendation would be to book last minute. Because this company does not handle weather related incidents/safety/ rescheduling well. Would not try this company again or recommend it to others because of this. Especially with a company the relies so heavily on the weather. You think they’d have a better system in place. Because of this we sacrificed a 6hr via ferrata for a 3 hr..

Via ferrata Marmolada West Ridge, Dolomites

The guide was excellent. The trip has to be cancelled due to an avalanche so I gave 3 stars. Explore share were none the wiser but the guide made contact and alternative arrangements were made and all worked out well.

My daughter and I had a wonderful time. The via Ferrata was great, the view was stunning and our guide, Benny, was wonderful. She oriented us of what’s coming, knowledgeable about the area, and making sure we’re comfortable with the pace. She helped us also with our accommodation to and from Figo di Fassa to the foot of the chairlift which we really appreciated her for that. About the via ferrata, make sure you wear mountain shoes.

Renato was not available but he recommended another guide, Robert. I was jetlagged and had barely eaten in 24 hours. It was short notice on my part and I wasn't fully prepared when I showed up. Despite all of this, he was so patient and we made it through the tour. The views were amazing and he took pictures and video during.

We did a 1 day Ferrata with Marica. We've both never climbed a Ferrata before but we are both good hikers. We enjoyed our trip very much and you don't need to be a climber. Marica took good care of us and she is very informative with the local geography and history. We felt very safe with her. If you are traveling near the Dolomite and want to try something a bit out of your comfort zone, I highly recommend doing a ferrata especially with Marica. We did both ferrata ra gusela nuvolau and ferrata-averau. It took us about 6 hours.

She was amazing at catering to the needs of our 3 very different children including one who was feeling anxious. Our 5 year old was completely enamored with Marika & wanted to stay in Italy with her! In addition to being a lovely person I felt safe the entire time and she was appropriately cautious as you would want anyone to be with your children. Highly highly recommended!!

Great intro to via ferrata. Our guide was Roberto and he was great. He was at the meeting point waiting for us and was very thorough in checking our equipment before we got onto the climb. He gave us tips along the way as to what to look out for, how to find footholds, etc. He took photos with his phone along the way, and forwarded them to us afterwards, so that we weren't fumbling for them ourselves. Very professional and recommendable.

Explore share were highly responsive and found me a guide very last minute who was excellent. My only comment would be that due to the speed at which we completed the route, the day ended early afternoon so it would have been nice to fill out the rest of the time - it would therefore be helpful to clarify what is included in the price (e.g. am I paying for time such as a full day, or the route etc).

Our guide Bruno was a very experienced mountaineer who made us feel safe throughout the via ferrata. The via feratta Punta Anna itself is an amazing experience and I am so glad we did it. The climb can be quite challenging at times with some climbing technique needed, but even my boyfriend who has vertigo managed to do it. It is absolutely stunning, with many good footholds and handholds so we could rest when needed. Explore-share was also really good at communicating with us before the trip to update us of our change of guides etc.

This was my first time in the Dolomites and also my first Via Ferrata experience, and it was incredible! I could not have chosen a nicer guide for the morning, Etienne was really friendly and reassuring, and very patient. What's more, as a local to the area he was able to give to tell us a lot about the history of the place, with interesting stories and anecdotes and point out all the different peaks and ranges which made it extra special. As it was my first time, I was very excited, but also a little nervous. I needn't have worried though as I was clearly in very safe hands. He had selected a route that was good for beginners and with all the equipment and guidance I could not have felt safer. The climb to the top and the views from the summit of Mount Averau at nearly 9000 feet was just awesome, such a beautiful setting and we were blessed with good weather too :) I would 100% recommend this to anyone thinking about it, just go for it, it's not as scary as you think and the views from the top are out of this world! I can't wait to go back and perhaps give it a try on my own :)

It was nice talking and walking with Etienne and I am impressed by the variety of guided tours Etienne is involved. y sons will never forget this day.

We had a great day out with Marika and were spoilt with amazing views and a great climb up Monte Averau. We hiked up to the via ferrata from Cinque Torri instead of getting the chairlift and were treated with incredible views of cloud inversions on the mountains. The via ferrata itself is quite short, so great for beginners (more time hiking than on the via ferrata) but the views from the top were sensational!

This was our first time doing via ferrata and to be honest I was a bit worried as I've never done something like this before. We've been lead by Ethienne who was very knowledgeable, very kind and very helpful, sharing information and skills to help us do it the right way. The climb was steep, but they do different ones and I can honestly say this was one of the best things I have ever done! I would definately recommend this experience to anyone. We've quickly realised on the day there was no way we could have done this on our own and the support and encouragement and knowledge sharing was everything we have hoped for!

Etienne and Gauthier were amazing. We had begun feeling a bit more comfortable on the wall prior to our scheduled excursion and Etienne was able to add a bit of difficulty during the day of our climb in order to challenge us (we asked for this). In addition, we felt safe, comfortable, and welcome the entire day. We were even given recommendations about how to make the most of the rest of our afternoon in the Dolomites once we had finished the climb. If you think this is something you'd like to do, I recommend you don't second guess that feeling. Do it!

Ettiene took us on a wonderful trip in the stunning Dolomites. First day was rain and snow, Ettiene planned an alternative program in the First World War tunnels so we didn’t have to walk in the rain all day. The huts were nice and good food. The trip was a bit too challenging for our mother (65) but Ettiene helped her a lot by carrying her bag and securing her with a rope on the steep parts. Via ferratas were super cool, wonderful views. A tip for others: just go because it is great, but expect some serieus walking up is inclusief to get to the via ferratas.

After a brief discussion regarding our previous experience we decided on a medium category Via Ferrata route. This was challenging for us and was exactly what we wanted. Etienne gave us great instruction both at the foot of the climb and once on it with great tips and encouragement . He also pointed out places of interest to us. He really made us feel secure and confident to take on the challenge and we would highly recommend Etienne for anyone looking to try their hand at Via Ferrata.

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!

I'm writing this several days after I finished my via ferrata trip, and I can honestly say I haven't stopped thinking about how great of a trip it was. Working with Explore-Share was efficient and made the process quite easy. The trip I ended up doing was in Val di Fassa / the Rosengarten group, and I have to say the places I saw ticked all the boxes of an amazing Dolomites experience. Gorgeous meadows, wildflowers, stunning peaks, verdant valleys, perfect trails, wildlife too. And honestly, the element that brought all this together and allowed me to get the most out of the experience was my guide, Etienne Bernard. Etienne is a true professional. He listened to my wants and the planned and executed everything smoothly. Without Etienne, I would not have experienced 1/2 of the joy I did in the mountains. With Etienne at the helm, I was able to confidently focus on the scenery and hiking and climbing to maximize my enjoyment. With a smart and experienced guide like Etienne, I was able to push myself way beyond what I would have done without him. I highly recommend a via Ferrata trip in the Dolomites, and I highly recommend you request Etienne Bernard to guide you. You will be like me, savoring the memories of your time in the Dolomites!

Etienne was supportive and helpful throughout and led us to the top of Punta Anna. It was a little more challenging than we expected but he was patient and took extra time and care to help us reach the peak. The views were totally worth it, and the expeience is something we talk about as a family that was amazing. I would recommend Etienne to everyone!

Via ferrata Punta Anna, in Cortina

As a group of 4 we went on a via ferrata adventure with Enrico and had an amazing time. Communication with Enrico was straightforward and he picked the perfect route: challenging but not too hard and consequently everybody in the group had a great time despite different levels of experience. It's very clear that Enrico is extremely competent and has a lot of experience. We always felt completely safe with him and he was very encouraging and fun to talk to. Looking forward to coming back. Highly recommended!

1+day via ferrata in the Dolomites

This was an amazing experience for my husband and me. Once in a lifetime . Etienne is a perfect guide and teacher. There is no way we could have done this with out his guidance and help. The views were spectacular , we both get a little fearful of heights but Etienne made sure we were safe the entire time. I highly recommend Etienne for the via Ferrata experience. We have no climbing experience but he showed us what we needed to know, he has expertise in many areas, not just guiding. This trip is well worth the price. I wish we could share it with our friends and family. The history of the place is impressive and he was able to teach us so much about it, we got to see a marmot and chamois also, this trip is excellent for nature, history, beauty and physical exertion/ challenge. Etienne helped me do what I didn’t think I could.

1+day via ferrata in the Dolomites

Etienne was a wonderful mountain guide! From coordinating our meet up point, to giving us some history of the tunnels and trenches from WWI, to showing professionalism and giving advise during our climb to the top, it was a experience we will never forget! All the equipment was provided and we felt extremely safe during our hike! Etienne is a true pro and we would totally do another via ferrata with him in the Dolomites in the future! Be sure to bring real hiking boots (loose rocks), sunscreen, water, and a light jacket for the tunnels! We are moderately active and this beginner experience was perfect for our first time!

I was a bit upset the night before the climb to find my guide was I'll and asked another guide to take his place. His father Renato Bernard was excellent and I had a wonderful climb and day. Fantastic!

Guided Bepi Zac al Costa via ferrata in the Dolomites

Enrico and the staff at explore share were extremely nice to work with. To our dismay, the weather didn’t cooperate and we were unable to do our hike. They were very quick in processing our refund. Hopefully we can try again in the future and will definitely consider Enrico and explore share again.

Guided Via ferrata in Monte Paterno (2744 mt)

This tour was unanimously my family's favorite part of our trip. The view from the top is the most stunning 360 view I've ever seen. Enrico, our guide, was clear, calm and engaging. We had a person who is terrified of heights, and Enrico did an excellent job of balancing patient encouragement with determined push. For those more fearless who are experienced hikers and climbers, this particular via ferrata may be a bit underwhelming. A few of us wanted more of a challenge. Overall, fantastic.

Marmolada 1-day via ferrata ascent

We had a great experience with Mr.Enrico Geremia for our via ferrata trip up Marmolada. Enrico was a friendly guide and did not compromise with any of the safety equipment. We felt secure all the while with Enrico. We would certainly recommend our friends who have plans to hike the Dolomites in the future to use this platform :)

1-day Tomaselli via ferrata in Passo Falzarego

This was a life changing experience! Etienne was super professional and all three of us felt completely safe during the via ferratas! I never though we could climb such a difficult Via Ferrata like Cesco Tomaselli on the second day, but with his experience, teachings and the confidence transmitted we were able to climb that Monster! And what an amazing adventure it was! Never felt so alive in my life! Etienne can help and guide during the ascend but at the same time it seems like we are climbing a rock wall with a friend! Super friendly and with a vast knowledge of the dolomites area. He even took my backpack when I felt exhausted due to the heat. Thank you very much for the 2 days and for sure next year we'll be there for more adventures! João Carvalhosa

3-day guided via ferrata tour in the Dolomites

It. Was. So. Amazing. The trek was everything I hoped it would be and more. Enrico was a super guide - he was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and I could tell he really loves sharing the Dolomites with people. He organized a fantastic trip - the huts we stayed in were amazing and the scenery was unbelievable.

1-day climb on the Bepi Zac al Costa via ferrata in the Dolomites

We had two wonderful days in the Dolomites. Etienne Bernard guided us two days. The first day was easy (as we asked for). the next day he recommended a medium via ferrata trip, it was challenging, but we loved it. Etienne was very experienced, and guided us on a trip we never could done alone.

Via ferrata day trip near Bolzano in the Dolomites

The trip was incredible!!! Etienne was an excellent guide. At all times during the hike and via ferrata he made 100% sure that we were comfortable and safe. He was pleasant and shared loads of local knowledge which made the trip all the more welcoming. He took photographs and gave us time to take in all the amazing views that the trip had to offer. He had all the gear that we required and leading up to the trip was easy to communicate with. We would highly recommend the trip and Etienne as a guide.

My wife and I had an incredible experience on our via ferrata trek. Marica was so helpful when it came to directions, choosing the right trail and even provided a rain jacket for my wife as she did not have one. Marica was very safety conscious and we had complete trust in her abilities and knowledge of the area. Thank you

1-day via ferrata on Punta Anna, near Cortina d’Ampezzo

Etienne was fantastic and we would definitely work with him again. He has a nice, pleasant personality, so we were happy to spend the day with him. He also has a sense of expertise and trustworthiness that makes you feel more comfortable and confident in your activity. We ended up doing 2 little ferratas instead of Punta Anna, which was a good decision. We are novices and were concerned about the inclement weather during our trip. The day before our climb we had severe thunderstorms that made us both very nervous. Etienne met up with us the night before and discussed alternative plans. Being about to meet him face to face and discuss our desires and concerns in person made us feel much better going into the experience and also with Etienne as our guide. I also loved that he took pictures of us and sent them to us afterwards. It's so nice to have beautiful, high quality pictures of the experience!

1-day Via Ferrata in Val di Fassa, Dolomite Mountains

Our dolomites experience was amazing! Mauro was really nice and patient with me and my wife. We changed our itinerary on the last day of dolomites as the via ferrata on piz boe would have been too difficult, instead we did a smaller one on Mauro's suggestion.

Our trip with Herbert was fabulous! He was very accommodating, picking us up from our hotel and then dropping us off at the train station. The via ferrata itself was great, we had a blast. Herbert guided us well through the tougher sections. I felt safe and confident the entire time. We would absolutely book Herbert again, and I was very happy with explore-share. Thanks!

Full-day climb on the Formenton via ferrata in the Dolomites

Me and my wife and 16 years old son had a wonderful day with our guide Etienne. Our first plan was to go via Ferrara to del Formenton in Cortina. Etienne suggested that we would go to another place near Passo Falzarego. We had an excellent trip with a excellent guide. It was very nice that Etienne could speak English. If I come back to Dolomites for off piste skiing, I will definitely contact him.

Piz da Lech, Dolomites, Guided Via Ferrata

Etienne is a wonderful guide. He was very knowledgeable with the geography, history and biodiversity of the Dolomites. We felt very safe with him throughout climbing/hiking the Via Ferrata. Having conversations with him while going uphill made the whole experience very enjoyable. He also recommended other activities we could do for the rest of our stay, which was very helpful. We would love to come back one day in the winter to enjoy the rest of the amazing aspects of the Dolomites. Thank you!

Via ferrata Punta Anna, in Cortina

Enrico guided my family of 4 including 2 boys age 14 and 17 to do the Via Ferrata on Punta Anna. It was a fantastic day. First there was a vigorous walk up from Rifugio Dibona to the start of the Via Ferrata. We are a active family who hikes often but at the higher altitude, we still huffed a bit with the hike. But Enrico was patient and gave us whatever opportunities to take pictures and rest as we needed. During that hike, Enrico conversed with my boys to get a sense of how comfortable they may be with heights and climbing. Once the Via Ferrata started, it was just amazing. Enrico gave us clear instructions about how to do the Ferrata safely and kept an eye on us make sure that we were comfortable and having fun. He took amazing pictures of our family during the climb so that we did not have to fumble with our cameras and risk dropping it. That really allows me to enjoy the moment because it is indescribably beautiful and breathtaking. He then send us the pictures the next day and they were great and better than what I could have done. At the tricky parts of the climb, he offered to pull us up by rope if we were uncomfortable but we were all able to do it on our own. However, for others who may be unsure, it may be helpful to know that he can assist you in this way. Then on the way down, he showed us how to do a gravel run which we have never done and it was enormously fun! We cannot recommend Enrico enough as a guide for Via Ferrata, rock climbing , or skiing tour. He even gave us recommendations for future tours that we hope to do. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Italy.

Guided Via ferrata in Monte Paterno (2744 mt)

Had an amazing time with Enrico and Mauro. The views are just incredible and it was great to do something a bit different from just walking/hiking. They provided all the equipment and knew exactly where we were going and even took photos for us along the way which made the whole experience great. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to via ferrata in the Dolomites!

6-Day Hiking and via ferrata in the Dolomites

He was really really fantastic and our trip was amazing! It was myself, my friend and our two sons and Enrico challenged us all and was really patient and great with our boys. We had 5 days of hiking and via ferrata in an incredibly beautiful uncrowded part of the Dolomites. I felt 100% comfortable with Enrico that he made sure our kids were safe in every situation. We all had an unforgettable experience and want to come back for more :). I keep telling people how great explore share is!
