We had a super experience with Misha , we did a 4 days hike with him to Mount Layla in the Svaneti .He speak very well english and also some french . He knows a lot about the culture , history and ecology . He is very flexible to accommodate our needs and respectful of our speed of climbing. Always positive . Thank you Misha for this great adventure and helping us to discover this beautiful country and people . We strongly recommend him as a guide if you plan a trip to Giorgia .

Although the mountain is not high it was still challenging. Definitely no walk in the park. We could not ask for a better guide then Misha. We has loads of experience & knowledge. Always friendly and helpful. Took good care of us.

We did a 4 day hike with Misha to Mount Layla in Svaneti. It was a great hike that we thoroughly enjoyed: challenging and with amazing views. This was our first time hiking to 4000m, and we are happy we had Misha to guide us along. Misha knows Svaneti like the back of his hand, as we witnessed him giving thorough advice to a group of British hikers who had an outdated Caucasus map. He is always prepared for unexpected situations on the trail. For us, it was an almost vertical wall of hard, icy snow that were not confident enough to climb on our own. Misha quickly came up with a solution using rope and ice axes so we can lower ourselves down. He is also a very good conversation partner and we greatly enjoyed his company. We have a lot of great memories and photos from this hike and would definitely go hiking with Misha again, should we return to Georgia.

We bumped into Misha at Laila base camp. He was incredibly helpful providing tips and advice in perfect English on mountaineering in Svaneti based on his huge knowledge of the area. It would have been great to have had more time to spend with him. Highly recommended

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 the traditions and customs of the region. Thanks to him we saw stunning nature with not so much effort (since we are not experienced climbers it was important for us).
