I've climbed with Marc multiple times over multiple visits to the area and have been thoroughly satisfied every time. I've referred many friends of mine to him as well, if I know they're travelling to the area. Our first day was doing the Via Ferrata Cala del Moli. We were specifically looking for someone we knew would be good for guiding all ages as I had my teenage daughter with me. We both had an amazing time. I had done via ferratas before, and it was clear that Marc went out of his way to make sure my daughter felt safe and enjoyed the route. He was certainly a bit more expensive than the group tours, but worth every penny. Subsequent trips have all been climbing. Marc is thoroughly knowledgeable about the area. First, we went to the "usual" places (Monserrat!) but after that, he'd accurately gauged my interests and abilities and we went "off the beaten path" to some more remote and less traveled crags for some subsequent trips. What can I say? I'm a fan, and very much looking forward to this summer when I plan to climb with Marc again.
Le pedimos a Marc que nos diera un taller de auto rescate en pared. Hemos quedado muy satisfechos todos. Creo que es esencial tener un conocimiento básico de maniobras de auto rescate, ya que te puede ahorrar un problema o salvar la vida de tu compañer@. Marc es muy eficiente y organizado. Generoso con el l conocimiento y riguroso, nos miró a cada uno y corrigió cada detalle incansablemente. El precio está muy bien, y por todo lo que da, hasta podría cobrar el doble (pero no se preocupen que no lo va a hacer). Yo, más que satisfecha.
Do you think rock climbing in winter does not work well? Forget it! Marc shows you that Catalunya in January is an amazing experience. Above all, we appreciate his flexibility that allowed us to focus only and only on things that we wanted and he took care of everything else (finding the only place without rain, lending me his jacket and saving my fallen cell phone). In short, superb experience with a superb instructor!
La meva dona i jo varem fer un curs de Via llarga amb en Marc, la veritat es que va estar molt be, sobretot la manera que te en Marc d'explicar les coses, ens ha servit de molt. La veritat es que n'estem molt contents, Gracies Marc
I had one of the coolest experiences of my life on the Via Ferrata with Marc! He made sure that we felt safe and let us choose the level of difficulty that we wanted. He also took pictures of us climbing which I thought was really nice! Highly recommend.
I contacted Marc for a private guided day in Montserrat and he planned and executed a perfect day climbing for me. Marc listens closely to you and tailors the experience to you. He was friendly, gave great instruction in an uplifting way, and I always felt safe. He was punctual and easy to communicate with before and after the trip. Highly recommend if you’re looking for an awesome guided experience in Catalunya!
Thank you so much for this unique and incredibly exciting experience! You encouraged us to push our limits and helped us out of our comfort zone whilst keeping us safe at all times! Your skills, experience, professionalism, and calming nature made us feel safe and looked after throughout the day. We hope that many other happy adventurers will have the opportunity to climb with you 😊 Above all, you’re also an AMAZING photographer!!!! Thank you so much!
Marc was amazing. You could tell he was very knowledgeable on the topic. He went out of his way when our bus ran super late and waited for an hour to pick us up! He provided refreshing and hydrating drinks during our excursion and even after. Marc was awesome and the overall experience was a once in a lifetime adventure. It is definitely worth it, not too extreme but pushes you.
Marc Vilaplana Traveria Was phenomenal, he tailored a specific climbing trip to my climbing partner and I, we wanted to work on lead climbing outdoors, multi pitch climbing, and trad climbing! Marc did all of this no problem! He is a amazing guide and truly knows what he is doing! Highly recommend!!
