I spent 2.5 days mountain biking with Manuel from Ride and Smile in the Davos-Klosters area in late June, 2023. It was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend them. For anyone visiting this area, I strongly recommend hiring a guide as there is so much terrain to explore and hidden trails that only an experienced guide like Manuel knows about. We rode all over the Davos-Klosters area, mostly on single track trails, from mountain top peaks, to high alpine valleys, to stunning gorges. We also visited several, centuries old villages. I also strongly recommend an e-bike as we were able to explore so much more terrain than would be possible with human power alone. I really enjoyed riding with Manuel and he did a great job matching our rides to my ability level and interests.

Ride and Smile hatte eine grosse Herausforderung zu bewältigen! Brunch in den Bergen, an einem schönen und möglichst einsamen Ort und nicht allzu weit weg von einem Parkplatz. DANKE für die perfekte Organisation und es gibt 100 von 100 Punkten. Jederzeit wieder.

Manuel and the team at Ride and Smile are excellent. I had 3 days of guiding for me and my family this week in Davos with 3 separate guides, for off-piste skiing, touring on skins, and snowshoeing. On one of the trips I lost a ski over a cliff, and our guide Lucas climbed down to find it! Manuel himself provided some excellent tips to improve my ski technique on our second trip, and Paolo gave us excellent information about the surroundings for our snowshoeing. The team's professionalism, expertise, patience and friendliness were a great pleasure - both before our visit (to find ski rentals, resort logistics, help with planning for the weather etc etc), and during the tours themselves. I cannot recommend them highly enough!!

Ride and Smile Ski School in Davos - I had a fantastic time skiing with Manuel from Ride and Smile! Did some awesome off-piste runs that were so easy to get to! My entire trip revolved around what I wanted to do and how I felt. Everything about my time - the skiing, the views - was amazing!

Bei wunderbarem Wetter durften wir unvergessliche Tage geniessen. Es hat gepasst. Besten Dank Manuel und weiterhin viel Erfolg!

Amazing snowboarding progress in just 3 days! Thoroughly recommended!!! Matteo was brilliant, even before the snowboarding lessons began, from providing a recommendation on the type of beginner board to rent, to thoughtfully suggesting my girls have their first lesson at the base of Jakobshorn/Davos, rather than battle the t-bar at Madrisa/Klosters (which is what I did two decades ago and enough to put off any beginner snowboarder for life!) As for the lessons, the results speak for themselves: towards the end of day three's lesson, they successfully navigated a black run! Equally important in my book is the way a lesson is taught (I joined for a morning). Matteo's enthusiasm is infectious and speaks to his teaching style. He takes things very steadily. The focus is on staying in control, and laying strong foundations (which speaks to his training as a professional fencer!) Regarding the admin side of things, faultless.
