Hi! I wanted to thank you for doing all the work chasing down a guide to take me rock climbing on Saturday. I had a fabulous time with Franco (who also co-owns the local indoor rock climbing gym in Pisa). I joined a group from the climbing gym that was learning to climb outdoors. It was a great experience. So thank you again.
Hi Tamara! The rock climbing guide was amazing, very informative about the area we climbed in and super helpful when it came to technique. I've been climbing for a while but he was able to give me pointers on how to improve which really made for an eventful day. Would have been nicer if he had a larger selection of helmets since I have a slightly larger head than most people and it was difficult wearing the helmet he had with him because it was slightly too small. Would have also been nicer if we had a photographer to capture the moments while climbing but I still have the memories which is still great.
