TYPE OF SERVICE:
Private Service: Designed for those who only want to stay with the people you know for example you and your partner, only two people will be on the climbing tour. Of course this is a more expensive service.
This service is more personalized, the will guide adapt himself to your rhythm, the guide will teach you (if you would like) the small tricks of the mountain, for example, different skills of world basic ascents.
On this service, you will not climb the mountain with another client that has more or less experience than you. The guide will try to take you as far as possible up to the summit.
Shared Service: This is designed for people of different nationalities on the tour, (for every 5 participants there is a guide) and is an economic service. The negative aspect of this service is that, the participants have different levels of physical experience; some are good, some very good and others find it more difficult. There are some cases where there are the people with a lot of experience who take part on a shared service trip, and at the same time in the same group there are other people who have no experience, nor a good physical state, in our experience the people with less experience hardly ever reach the summit.
If we are direct and sincere there are thousands of excuses why people do not reach the summit and we are all different, in our skills and abilities.
