Powdertage im März Wir haben mit Manuel ein paar absolut geniale Tage verbracht. Er hat traumhafte Pulverhänge trotz allgemein nicht mehr idealer Bedingungen für uns gefunden und auch dafür gesorgt, dass alle aus der Gruppe frische Spuren ziehen konnten. Er geht auf jeden Teilnehmer und seine Bedürfnisse unf Fähigkeiten ein. Nebenbei vermittelt er wichtiges Wissen zu Sicherheit und Gelände und gibt wertvolle Tipps zu Aufstiegs- und Abfahrtstechnik, von denen auch Erfahrenere profitieren. Einer der besten und professionellsten Guides, mit denen ich unterwegs war. Wir freuen uns schon auf nächstes Jahr!

Freeride Trip in Klosters Mit Manuel haben wir den besten Tag ever verbringen dürfen: feinste powder runs abseits der Pisten, super Tips und Tricks für die beste Tiefschneetechnik und nebenbei noch richtig anschauliche Lawinenkunde. Besser kann man es nicht machen! Fünf Sterne + und jederzeit wieder. Spätestens im Sommer zum Mountainbiken! Tausend Dank Jenny & Anna

Tour-ski guiding Ride and Smile gave us a perfect day of tour-skiing in de surroundings of Klosters/Davos. A true paradise for skiing backcountry. We had a very careful and friendly guide who gave us a lot of very useful tips, safety instructions, ski-skills and other tricks. We started the day early morning and finished late in the afternoon: you really get value for your money. Our guide Patrick gave us the best he can. We definitely recommend Ride and Smile guiding-office and will come back for sure! Thank you Ride and Smile for a great experience at late December in beautiful Klosters/Davos! See you soon! All the best!

Stunning downhill biking in Prattigau 2 superb mornings of mountain biking spent with Manuel and my 2 sons (12,14). Took us on new trails from Wolfgang and Sertig down to Klosters. Gauged our ability level just right, so we were tested yet not too technical to blow anyone's confidence. We'll be back for more in summer 2021.

Best hike in Davos/Klosters Area Best hike in the Davos/Klosters/Prätigau Region! Uncrowded tracks through a very complete hike with waterfalls, rivers, lookouts, bridges, farms, flowers, historical sites, beautiful rock formations and many other surprises. Ride & Smile knowledge of the region made me visit places I would not have seen otherwise. Can definitely recommend. The option of Virtual Guiding is a great idea too, if you don't necessarily want to be accompanied by a guide.

Ski fahren lernen Wir hätten zwei wunderschöne Tage mit Ride and Smile. Ich könnte davor nicht Ski fahren. Hab nie probiert. Dann kam der Tag. Nach drei Stunden bin ich schon Berg runter gefahren. Mir würde alles gut erklärt. Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit dem tollen Ergebnis. Hat echt viel Spass gemacht. Ski fahren ist für mich ab jetzt ein Lieblingssportart im Winter. Danke für die schöne Zeit und ich kann weiter empfehlen. Paulina

Great off piste guide in Davos / Klosters Had a great day off piste with the guide from Ride and Smile. As I had been so fortunate to go off piste with a guide from Ride and Smile last year it was no doubt who I was going to call for this years trip to Davos. Always service minded and able to find the spots with the best conditions. Hans, Norway

What a fantastic ski lesson in Klosters with Ride and Smile! My husband and I visited Klosters as total beginners and only had one day to ski. We wanted to make the most of the little time we had and after a lot of research for a good ski lesson in Klosters, were very pleased when Ride and Smile could fit us in! Our instructor was absolutely fantastic and I cannot thank him enough for a great day. We achieved WAY more than I ever thought possible to achieve in just one day. We were worried that it would be a wasted trip if we didn’t even make it up any slopes but with Ride and Smile, we were up there within 2 hours! It really showed the importance of having a great instructor when we massively overtook other beginners who started before us. Not only did our instructor help with the skiing, it was also so useful having a friendly face with us all day with great recommendations for where to ski, where to eat and grab a drink and generally just help with the language barrier. We were collected from the lobby of our hotel and had no worries whatsoever about how to get to where we were going. We honestly got so much out of our day and would HIGHLY recommend Ride and Smile to anyone visiting Klosters. We know they do so much more than ski lessons too and we would love to try out some of their other activities in the summer!

Wir hatten drei grandiose und lehrreiche Skitourentage. Manuel ist ein super Guide, der auch noch Tage nach dem letzten Schneefall die unverspurten Tiefschneehänge aus dem Hut zaubert. Klare Weiterempfehlung!

Manuel hat sich unserem Anliegen angenommen und am Schluss konnte er nicht einmal ein Geschäft mit uns machen. Trotzdem hat er uns wertvolle Tips gegeben und uns super beraten. Man spürt, dass Ihm das Wohl der Gäste am Herzen liegt und den Kunden an erster Stelle stellt. Vielen dank, hoffentlich können wir dich beim nächsten Mal berücksichtigen. (Fotos folgen)

Connected with Ride and Smile for a ski tour in Davos with my son who was practicing for the first time, and Manuel was our guide. And He gave us a great service : fun, very well organised to chose the right tour given the weather and snow, top focus on safety and very much customer oriented, doing all he could so we has a good time, which we did. Highly recommended and will definitely use their services again.

If I could, I would give Ride and Smile 6 stars! 🤩😜. From first enquiry about booking a guide, through discussing the options and plan, and then on the day itself, everything was highly professional with great communication. I had a day off-piste skiing and was perfectly matched with one other person. We skied fresh lines all day and had great fun but safety always came first. Not only was it amazing skiing but also excellent people to be with. I learned lots and came home with great memories and tired legs! The perfect day. I will be back! 😉😁
