We did a few day hikes around Mestia with SvanAlp. It was a beautiful and rewarding trip completely off the beaten path. Misha knows all the small and less visited trails in Svaneti and easily communicates with locals. He also gave us a glimpse into...More

I can consider Misha - thanks to his experience on the mountain, cultural and historical knowledge, and unerring commitment to making my trip run smoothly - a true friend after our Mt Laila ascent in Svaneti. I could not recommend taking the opportunity to have...More
Misha guided us on Mount Laila in Svaneti in August 2018, a truly unforgettable experience. While we had done a lot of trekking and hiking before, we had limited mountaineering experience. The ascent of Mount Laila was a perfect way to practice glacier crossings and...More
I so much value the fact that you found time to write this review. MANY thanks!
Misha devised walks for us for two days, adapting to our changing needs brilliantly (illness in one of our group, and slightly tired legs on the second day). He kept in regular contact in the lead up to the days we had booked, adapting plans...More
I value your finding time to write this review. It was pleasure to spend those two days with your family. Cheers!
Having solicited Misha's services two summers in a row, both times we remained absolutely satisfied. He knows the mountains, their history and local lore profoundly and freely shares his knowledge, which he does always in an interesting and unobtrusive way, not forcing himself upon you...More

Louis, many thanks to you for writing this review. I truly enjoyed spending those 4 days with you, guys! And your persistence was something I haven't seen before. Well done!
Misha was an outstanding mountain guide during a climb of Laila Peak. He provided great advice and allowed us to make the most a limited time frame with some unfortunate weather. In addition to supplying us with good equipment, Misha was a technically excellent guide...More
Max, thank you for this high rating of my service. I totally enjoyed spending time with both you and Jacob. Your intelligence and determination made me feel in my element. Guys, you are great!
