Hello Climbers,

My name is Nikolai Savin. I have guided on Mt.Elbrus about 60 times.  I live in Moscow and have been the owner and leader of an adventure company Alptour to climb Mt. Elbrus for 17 years. We organize climbing Mt. Elbrus  through Moscow and St. Petersburg (visa support, arranging the logistics, hotels, permits, guiding, food, etc.) for groups from different countries .
We have been working with the American companies Mountain Experience (OR), Adventures International (OR),  Ascend Adventures, Ultimate Expeditions (OR), Mountain Dreams, Camp 5 Expeditions, and Mountain Travel (CA) and private groups since 1990. We would like to find climbers, guides, adventure companies or mountain clubs which like to work and climb Mt. Elbrus with us.

...Nicolai was recommeded to us from friends.Nicolai is absolutly honest, a very friendly man, he organized the trip in perfect way, how we talked about in Email.

We thank Nicolai for the wonderful trip, at the end he showed us his hometown Moskau - very, very good - it is his city! Never visit Moskau without Nicolai.

If we come again to Russia  - we make it just with Nicolai, and really just with him.

In Austria it is not easy to find a man so friendly and honest as Nikolai. Thank you very much.

...and flexibility which Nikolai provided made for a very comfortable trip when we were off the mountain. As well, his English is excellent and enjoys explaining mountaineering techniques, the history of the area, and the geology of the mountains surrounding. He has over 30 years of mountaineering experience and has climbed Elbrus over 50 times. I can recommend him highly as a guide in the Russian Mountains....

... and Nikolai was very experienced with the treatment (descent, descent. descent). He took me back down to the valley for a night, and afterwards we were able to make it to the summit with no problems.
I cannot say enough good things about Nikolai. He is a very strong climber and guide with a wealth of climbing experience. He is also very cautious and conscientious. His English is great and he made excellent arrangements for us in terms of drivers and accommodations....

I wanted to thank you for putting together my trip to Russia and
for getting me to the top of Elbrus.  I had such a great time in
your country; you did a great job of setting me up in Moscow and
St. Petersburg. 
And as for the climb, I couldn't have done it
without you. 
Thanks for being patient with me as I slowly worked
my way to the top.

Have a good climb. 

Leader and giude, Nikolai Savin.
